Look who's back !!!!


I know: you can't believe it but it's true : I did stitch some green yesterday. And I survived I'm curious to see how many years it will take me to finish that tree ...


Enough talking, I know you just want to see my new stash You are just a bunch of curious gals (because me, of course, I'm so perfect ) You know I'm a Lanarte lover. A fellow cross stitcher was selling some charts from the kits she stitched. When I checked her list, I saw 3 Lanarte charts and of course, I didn't even try to resist as I can't afford most of those kits.


I got one I always wanted:


I love this bouquet One of my old time favorite.

Then I got Lavender:




And these flowers that were originally sold with a printed fabric but I'm sure I can stitch it on a Silkweaver fabric.

And you know what? Chuy got a little bonus from work and he decided to offer me something. He told me to choose a kit I really wanted and you know what is great? An online needlestore has THE kit I always wanted at 50% the original price. I'll place my order tonight Chuy will get Seinfeld, season 5


I weighted myself this morning ... I gained 2 kilos I had already some weight to loose ... I guess I need to start exercising again ( bad knee, bad back ... ) and eat better ...
... I'll start to excercice tonight: do you think stitching can be included in my excercice program? I wish


Today was Esteban's carnival: I'll show you the pics tomorrow ( I should have worked in advertising )


My friend Blue mentioned on her blog that the french blog
Tire-fils is going to close soon. She has a lot of free charts so save ( the menu is on the right) what you like before she erase her blog

That green is coming along. Keep in mind every stitch is that much closer to the finish line!

Good luck with the weight loss.

I'm looking at that tree and thinking that it would take me years to do...probably not too helpful of a comment, huh? ;-)

Seinfeld...we have all 9 seasons on DVD. We love that show just too much...quite sad when we can relate our real life happenings to what happens in Seinfeld episodes...LOL!
