Look!

Because a lot of people stopped by the other day, I thought you all deserve a little treat: a whole picture of my Lanarte !!! Aren't you lucky?

And a closer look at the white rose bush:

Still a lot to do: finish the rose bush, add more bricks to my wall, finish the ground close to the green boots, finish the roof (because when some part got boring I skipped it but if I want to see this piece finish one day, I will have to stitch it anyway .... right? )


We got a busy day today: homeschooling at my friend's house (we work especially on math problems and I think the 3 girls are going to hate me at the end of the 2 weeks ) and in the afternnoon, shopping for school supplies: look at my ticker: back to school is ( too) close ... Steb got a brand new backpack !!!! Can't believe I just bought a school backpack for my baby ... Now I have to sort out all the supplies . I still need to buy some stuffs for Pierre as some teachers want a notebook with 120 pages, others want one with 190 pages ( I, I think they just want to drive the parents crazy )

I love looking at your progress pics so much, especially now that my stitching desire has returned.

I thank you so much for your regualar posts, as much as I don't take the time to post to each one - sorry. You've been instrumental in bringing me back to my love of stitching. I see you progress pics and I just want to work on my own pieces. Soon. Very soon.

Your Lanarte is really beautiful Chiloe.

I am surprised you have to buy the school books yourself and I had to raise my eyebrows when I read they even wanted a particular amount of pages, and each one different. That seems a bit much to me.

Some notebooks with 120 & some with 190...What the heck? Do they use every page? Guess so!

AMAZING! Just amazing Chiloe! I can't believe there is still parts left to do.

Joei said...

Wow, Chiloe it's very very lovely. Had you not said still a lot to do, I would have thought it's finished already. Can't wait to see more. You are doing great.

Good luck with the home schooling. I hated math.

Your stitching is progressing really well. Looks amazing.

Desi said...

Wow, that's looking great. It reminds me of the cards painting the white roses red in Alice in Wonderland.

I enjoy your blog. Back in May, when you were writing about your landlord, it was painfully funny. I could relate to the frustration, but it was kind of a Lucy Ricardo thing.

I totally adore this project of yours. I can't believe there is still more to do, it looks finished to me. But hey, anything to keep you happy LOL.
