I'm back !

Not that I went anywhere The kids are on vacations and I have less time to blog I did stitch a little bit though:


The whole piece doesn't fit in the scanner anymore so I took a picture with my camera so you can see better my progress. I still feel a lot of joy stitching this colorful design !!! Still no news of my old tree ... Weird

We had a great day yesterday: Emma spent the night at one of her friend and we went to pick her at 4.30 pm. The mom has a kid's cafe which was closed that day but she used it to celebrate her son fourth birthay. We met some friends and ended up having dinner with one of my them and her son. So we had good food and a relaxing evening. Pierre was soooooo happy as someone lend them a Wii. He had a lot of fun (Pierre's dream is to have a Wii but I find this little electronic device quite expensive ... ... ) At 9.15, we went to pick up chuy at work. If Pierre and Emma fell asleep very fast, Esteban is now scared of helicopters One night (and only one) an helicopter passed above us and reminded him the drill's noise that had scared him last fall .... So now, he's afraid the helicopter is going to come back .... Last night, I have to remind him that it was certainly a baby helicopter who had to go back to his mama and that NOW, the baby helicopter stays with his mama to sleep ... I hope if I remind him every night, he might believe it ...

Now back to house work: I have to change the kids' beddings Not as fun as stitching but more necessary.

Your WIP is looking great!
Sorry to hear that Esteban is having a hard time with the the helicopters. Is there anyway you can take him to see a helicopter, show him they aren't scarey? Or would this make it worse?

Great progress Chiloe.

Annie gets nightmares about the Cookie Monster from Sesame St and I tell her he is too busy eating cookies in the kitchen to come to the bedrooms. Strange the stories you need to come up with to comfort frightened children.

I don't blame Steb! We went through medfly spraying a few years ago. Squads of four helicopters in a row would fly low over the neighborhood during the night spraying everything. It was really scary - reminded us of every war/horror movie where they use those machines. Now our local police use them to catch speeders and to search for the occasional burgler which is also frightening.

You're really flying on your stitch piece (as usual). Our room renovation is hitting snags (as always happens) and so stitchery is even slower than usual. Oh, well.
