I got it !

The neighbor who owns a dog (or should I say: keeps a dog on his balcony) clean his balcony on saturday and let the mess become on sunday (he must be so exhausted from thhis big cleaning of the week ... ) I saw briefly one of my neighbors today, a retired lady, and learned she took it a step further (but she's also his closest neighbor): she called the city . Now let's hope something will be done quickly ...

I'm making some progress on my lanarte:


See how the flowers on the left is going to join soon the colors on the right I'm not sure I could stitch tonight as I have to help Chuy with the cutting of the crepe paper for the pinatas. Now, Emma wants a purple heart (I was sure, she wanted a pink or red one ... )

Sales season has started in France and I indulged in Madame la fée charts (they are way too expensive when they are regular price ) So here is what I got:

Wow, you have been busy on the Lanarte! Great stitching.

I love your new charts. That beach one is sooo cute!

I hope the city can help with the dog doo. Poor dog, having to live like that.

J'adore ton Lanarte, je suis un grand fan de Lanarte. J'adore aussi les fichiers que tu as achetés! Je ne viens de remarquer que maintenant que tu vis à Caen, j'ai passé deux nuits à Caen et le 1er soir, je suis allée chez 1, 2et 3 p'tits points dont j'avais l'adresse du DFEA - j'ai été un peu décue, avec leur stock! Mais j'ai eu aussi trop moins de temps pour fouiller dans ses offres! J'ai trouvé aussi Mme Katia où j'ai acheté des fils DMC.

Good luck with that poopy situation.

Your Lanarte is looking incredible!

You do see the green in those new patterns you bought, right? ;)

Sally said...

Your Lanarte is coming along so well Chiloe:)

Hope the poo situation is sorted properly soon.

Thank you for your comment on my blog. I don't think the doctor would be able to refer me when he does not what the cause is but I am sure he could do further tests if he wanted.

your lanate progress is great! My lanart progress slowly...
lovely madame le fée charts!

Meari said...

You WIP looks great!

Bliss said...

Very cute charts

Barbara said...

Your new charts are great!

I feel bad for that poor dog. In the picture you showed, it looked like a Rottweiler (our dog is 1/2 Rottie) and it is just so cruel to keep a dog like that locked up day & night ....

Awesome progress on your Lanarte! It looks fantastic when you see the whole thing. Not that it doesn't look fantastic in close up, it does, I just like seeing the whole thing occasionally as well.

Poor dog. If the city people can't help maybe the local animal protection society?

becca said...

What great progress you are making on the Lanarte. Do you know what you will be starting next?

Are the pinatas hard to make?

Pumpkin said...

I'd say you've done a huge progress! What a beautiful piece this is.

I've never heard of that designer before.

That's terrible! How can someone treat an animal like that?

Thank you so much for your kind words of support Chiloe.

I'll keep my fingers crossed that your neighbor is made to keep his balcony clean, what an nasty site to have to constantly see.

Your Lanarte is looking so pretty, and what great new stash. Good luck with the pinata.
