My neighbors' life

I don't really know them but I know it's a single mother with a teenage daughter. And let me tell you, they don't get along at all ... How do I know without talking to them? Well, we hear them screaming at each others very very well They used to argue at night until 11.30 pm but I think they are in a spring mood and now argue during the day as well Before the daughter loved to listen to loud music : she probably wanted to share her love of music with the whole building ... I will really appreciate they keep their little disagreement for themselves as it's a little embarrassing to share their private life ...

Thanks for your nice comments on the tadpoles hunt: I'm happy to report that they are still alive (minus one) We checked on the internet on how to feed them. Tadpoles are herbivores at first then they eat everything and become carnivores at the last stage of their development. ( who would have thought? Kids help us learn many things (beside patience ))


Still stitching my Lanarte, still loosing my mojo for that one, still trying to remember not to choose big projects next time


After the door, I may stitch some green on the left to relax

I had neighbors like that in the last place I lived. It was so embarassing to run into them ....

Your stitching progress is great!

Oh Geez Chiloe..bad neighbors...well the next time you hear them screaming at one another just call the Cops and they'll come and straighten them out in no time. That's what I've done in the past.

Don't you dare give up on that Lanarte piece...that is so beautiful.....

Take care & Happy Stitching

Your Lanarte is coming along so well. Please keep going with it:)

Oh no I hate neighbours like that. The ones we had in the adjoining house were noisy so it's heaven now the house is empty. Just hope we get some decent ones next!

You're too funny! You might stitch some green to relax. Since when is green relaxing for you. Silly woman, you!

Sorry to hear about your neighbours. Bad neighbours are just a nightmare. Hopefully they move soon!

I think your nieghbors are trying to share their private life to everybody. hehe

Is this lanarte piece really big? It doesn't look it. Don't lose hope though, it's really looking lovely. I'm sure you will finish before you know it.

Hi Chiloe,

You asked about Fairies At the Bottom of My Garden. I got this chart from the UK Cross Stitcher magazine dated May 2005. It originated from a book by David & Charles called Cross Stitch Fairies which is available from Amazon - http://www.amazon.com/Cross-Stitch-Fairies-Enchanting-Designs/dp/0715319469

hope that helps and thanks for the lovely comments.

Oh no, arguing neighbors are the worst. :( I'm so sorry.

Your Lanarte is beautiful so far! Keep up the great work, even if it's hard to do sometimes.
