Tuesday !

Edit: Have you heard that Mirabilia is going to have a new pattern called : Athena: Goddess Of Wisdom? It's going to be out on august 15 th !!!

Have you heard the story about
this litlle chinese girl who actually sang the song we heard at the Olympics but didn't appeared at the opening because she was not cute enough? Isn't it sad? Another girl who will grew up thinking she's not beautiful enough ... I think she was very cute and more natural than the one we actually saw. Chinese tend to look for perfection but beauty comes in all shapes and sizes ...

Thanks for all your comments on my lastest finish. It always makes me happy to see you took time to stop by and comment. I wanted to start the Janlynn kit, Treasure map but got a problem with my fabric so I had NO CHOICE but stitch again on the Lanarte ... See the happy face? When you don't touch such a big project for a long time, you are a little lost in the chart (especially if you didn't color the symbols like you should have done ... ) I don't know how long I'm going to resist the urge to start something new, something small: yes, because I told myself and now all of you that I won't start another big project until the Lanarte is completed ... But the world is full of medium and small sizes patterns And someone has to support the cross stitch industry, right?

Emma is still enjoying her pony camp but the little lady came back with an attitude today. What kind of attitude? Well, the one of someone who thinks she's better than the pedestrians that we are so I have to take her down of her throne very fast ... But Pierre got grounded today as well as they were bickering a part of the evening and didn't like when I told him to stop ...

That is such a shame that a seven years old little girl has to see the world like that... I think she is cute.

I received my magazine with the Halloween Fairy chart and was thinking about ordering some great fabric and the threads as soon as possible. Did you get yours yet? It's going to look great! Are you going to replace the "trick or treat" text with something or leave it off completely? This chart might be your savior from the Lanarte. ;)

That is such a shame for the little girl. I think she is lovely. I would have had no problem with putting her on that stage.

No stitchy photo! Nooo, I need my daily fix of Chiloe pics lol.

I was just reading about the little girl that was the voice of the Olympic opening ceremonies song. How sad for. I'm sure if she was made all up with the make up the girls lip synching she'd have looked adorable too. Very sad.

Great job on your latest finish. It looks awesome. Can't wait to see your next project.

Glad Emma enjoyed pony camp. I've never heard of sucha camp, do they ride ponys all day or is there other actives for the children to do?

I agree with you about the little Chinese girl. So sad. I just saw it on the news this morning. What a shame that we still can't teach our children that beauty isn't on the outside. She has a beautiful voice and is cute.

That's TERRIBLE! It's bad enough that this world puts so much pressure on people to be pretty and perfect :o(

I LOVE the new Mirabilia and will be buying it :o)

I'm glad to hear you went back to the Lanarte. Why not work on two projects at the same time?
