I've been bad .... again ....

I couldn't stay more than two days without a needle on my hands, right? So I checked my stash to find something small. I can't have a big project while I still have another big one waiting for me to be finished ... I can't ... I will feel too guilty ... So what did I find? If you look at the picture below, I'm not sure you can't guess what I chose !!!
It's actually a weekenders by JCA called Good girls and boys (it comes with the mat). I think it's from the 2008 collection. You know my love for the old guy so here is another one for my collection !!! Of course, I changed the fabric for a blue diamonds 28 count opalescent lugana by Silkweaver. It's a small design: 5" X 7" (or 13 X 18 cm).
Thanks for your advices for the Booo pattern. I have some grey fabrics and lots of Silkweaver fabrics so I'm going to write down all your suggestions and check my fabrics with the threads. Today I got my mail from JJ's collectibles with the shipping bill for my threads so I hope I'll get them very soon !!!

Thanks also for your good wishes about my health. I was feeling a little better today. I think the antibiotics are working but now I feel tired, probably from the infection .... Today we had lunch with a friend. School starts again on monday. Next vacations? April 3 rd !!! Can't wait !!! Now stitch and bed ... I'll answer my mails tomorrow ...

This is a very nice wip. I love the look of the Santa. I am also glad to know that you are feeling much better.

Can't wait to know which fabric you will go for your Boo.

That is a great start! Cute pattern too--you'll have that done in no time, right? :) Glad you are feeling better. It's no fun to be sick, especially when there is so much stitching to do!

Aww cute Santa. I think you get Santa withdrawal if you don't stitch one version or another of him every couple of months ;-)

Oh you naughty girl but I can certainly understand the need to do a small project. You definitely picked a nice one :o)

Glad you're starting to feel better.

I love blue diamond fabric... I've used that for a project in the past. It's such a delicate colour.

I'm sorry you have been sick. Hope you can start feeling better soon.

Lots of rest and some stitching sounds as good a cure as anything else ;)

I'm glad you are starting to feel better.

Everyone needs a large and a small project going don't they?

Heidi said...

What a cute Santa :) Glad you are feeling better. Antibiotics suck to take.

Wendy said...

Oooh I love this one. It's nice if you can do a smaller project between the big ones.

Debra said...

Ah, started another one. LOL! Glad to hear you are feeling better.
