I made nice progress last night again. It's such a pleasure to stitch something you really like !!!

I got nice mail today: I got the book I told you about some days ago (I'm too talktative to even remember when I talked about it !!! ) My mom offered me the book for my birthday (my only gift) , Amazon delivered it to me and it's wonderful !!! I took some pics to share my joy with you guys !!! Do you see the excitment here?

You can translate by childhood memories.

There are 144 pages and 50 charts related to childhood.

A stitching lesson:

Do you have a pet shops fan in your family? I found this blog with free pet shops charts. She makes all kind of charts, so check it out.

Have you seen I added a new ticker? Yep, we are moving in like 2 weeks. I found this new ticker: it's from ticker chaos from the UK You can make all sorts of ticker. It's a nice change from Ticker factory ,isn't it?

Moving: it's getting closer than I want to think so I now try to pack everyday something. Yesterday, I decided to pack Emma's toy away but I wan't done when she came back from school so she "discovered" so long lost toys and was very excited to take them out of the box .... Someone doesn't undestand the concept of packing here !!! Today, I'm packing my stash: magazines and leaflets. Do I really have so much stuffs?

I got tagged !!!! Sue at fitz stitches , (if you want to help Sue get postcards from all over the world, go here ), Becca and ? ( I forgot, sorry ... ) tagged me.

The rules are as follows:

1. Link to the person who tagged you.
2. Post the rules on your blog.
3. Write six random things about yourself.
4. Tag six people at the end of your post.
5. Let each person know that they have been tagged by leaving a comment on their blog.

So, here are six random things about myself:

1 - I love sinnging but I'm a really bad singer !!!

2 - I learned finnish and swedish at the university for one year.

3 - I love stationery: stitckers, writing papers, writing pad, address labels ... I'm such a child.

4 - I love taking pictures ! Too bad Steb doesn't understand that

5 - I don't think about eating vegetables and fruits and are attracted to junk food (but I do fight myself to eat more heathly ... )

6 - I'm a cross stitch addict but I'm like Amy Winehouse: I don't want to go to rehab No, no !!!

I'm not going to tag anybody because I know a lot of people already got tagged. But feel free to do it if you want to reveal us your most dirty secrets
Trust me we will all rush to your blog !!!

That book looks really cool. It made me smile to remember some of the things I used to do and play with as a child.

You will be ready in time for the move. But it's always a stressful time. Take care of yourself and don't forget to eat an apple a day :o)
