Someone has been bad today ....

Look :

Well it's my birthday so I can do whatever I want, right? Actually, I haven't started it yet ... I am only in the process of starting it : I need to change the fabric as I don't like to stitch on linen so I counted the numbers of stitches, I dug in my fabric box to find a 32 count lugana alternative. The original fabric is antique white but on the picture, it appears to be stitched on a white fabric so that's what I chose: a somewhat white lugana. I still need to serge it by hand ... I can't wait to start it but I really need to finish the other one. I'm too reasonable, I know !!!

Talking about my birthday; no, I didn't do anything special and no I didn't get any gifts ... Chuy bought me some flowers and that's it ...

I still backstitches all day long ... I'm pretty sure I even backstitches in my dreams !!! Click to enlarge.
I added more little nuggets! Don't let him go ladies, his pockets are full of these little nuggets !!! Well, there are also the playing card ... I still stitch from top to bottom and right now, I arrived at the miner's feet. I didn't forget a lot of stitches but I did leave a lot of backstitches for later. And now, time has come but I don't mind that much because it also means I'm close to finish it.

Desi
, this is what I call my metallic thread disaster (click to enlarge):


I made the (stupid) mistake to keep my metallic thread on the thread organiser ... Big mistake ... Well, I decided those scattered stitches with blended metallic thread were too hard to stitch so I cheated and stitched plain stitches instead ... I don't think anybody will notice and I'm not sure in 10 years from now, I will even remember I cheated ....

Yesterday was my 600 th message ! Can we say I'm talktative?

Wild West is fabulous Chiloe! I know it doesn't seem like it to you, but you do get through your projects really quickly. Your needles must be smoking every time you sit down to stitch!

Happy Birthday, dear friend! Stitching time is the best present anyway. And who says you can't get everything ready for another project before Wild West is finished? It looks great too, by the way!

Wow, congrats on 600 posts! Way too cool (this is best of all)...no one has even voted for you to stop blogging!

Happy belated birthday! Wishing you much happiness in the coming year.

And at least you got flowers...Jim refuses to buy me flowers. "Why? So they can die?" is what he says.
