What a lovely mail !!!!

All monday morning should start like this: you go pick up your mail and an envelope from the other side of earth is waiting for you. A big white envelope from Marita !!! See, Marita had some australian animals calendars and she asked on her blog who will be interested by one. Pierre and Emma didn't have one in their bedroom yet (Pierre love to circle the vacation date ) so I asked for one ( a great way to improve their knowledge of the world !!!
It's also a great way for your kids to have a nightmare in febuary !!! Just kidding

Marita is so sweet: she added a small kit made in Australia (now you know why I buy some Silkweaver odds and ends fabrics ):

This week end, I stitched mainly my SAL and I focused on the boy's head. You have noticed? A full head of hair but ...... no face ... Could someone has avoided stitching one over one this week end? I even avoided the hands ... and got tired of stitching it ... so I switched with the Snow family !!!



But I discoverd I made a mistake on the little snowman's hat After Mr frog left, I was able to stitch a little bit on the hat. I just love the happy color on that one Here is the pic:


During this week, I was also awarded an " You make my day award" by San (one of the first cross stitch blog I read when I got the internet) , Doris who makes bilingual posts so everybody can read her, and my name was mentioned by Missy . Thank you all !!!


I can't hardly imagine I really make a difference in people daily routine but I hope you enjoy reading my adventure in Stitch land So I'm supposed to award 10 bloggers! A lot of you had already been awarded so it's going to be hard to find someone who hasn't gotten her award ... I'm going to award in alphabetical order: Dawn (I enjoy all her WIP !!!) Debi (a kid at heart with strong opinions - Debi (I couldn't get the link to your blog ... ),Marie, a Lanarte fan (check out her gallery ) , Marita an amazing lady who is stronger than she thinks , Kendra ( I love looking at her WIP ),Meari (because she loves snow ) Megumi, Mindy, Quiltorstitch who makes amazing quilts !!! Tammy I hope you will find the house of your dreams and Teejay (check her latest beautiful finish ). I had to choose only 10 persons but youknow if I read and comment on your blog that means I like you and really enjoy your blog !!!


It took me a long time to write this post so I'll tell you about Pierre's appointment with the nutrionist tomorrow

Meari said...

Thanks for the award, Chiloe. You're misinformed, though. I *don't* like the snow! (LOL) Actually, it's that I don't like shoveling/snow blowing/driving in the snow. (LOLOL)

Your WIPs look great!

Sally said...

Your WIps looks fantastic Chiloe!

Congratulations on your award:)

Hello Friend,
Going to make a visit and say that the promotion of 50,000 visitors on my blog is nearing its end ... And the person with luck will win a lovely surprise gift ...
Not Spend!
And also take to see the handouts of Decoupage in cloth and decoupage in cans with many photos that made available at the blog ...
Got a great idea for this with the frog keropi ...
Kisses, C�tia

I'm so thrilled it arrived safely.

Your blog makes me day, thank you for the award.

Just have to say you gave me such a laugh with your comment

"Meari (because she loves snow)"

That chuckle made my day much brighter.
