If you want to see a beautiful finish, go to Yvonne's blog to see her beautiful piece. I think she made the perfect match between a design and a fabric. What do you think?
I wanted to blog yesterday but didn't find time last night. It doesn't help that lately I've been having lots of ups and downs (more downs than ups actually) I hate feeling that way and I hope it won't last too long ... Pierre got sick and had to stay home two days. Today he went back but complained he had a headache. With him, I don't know if it takes advantage of kind of being sick to not go to school and do anything or if he's really not feeling well. Also, low temperature worries me as that's the way his leukemia started. If he continues he will get a blood test but I learned not a long time ago that a blood test dooesn't necessilarly show something. He's also teething: who would have thought a 12 y.o. will be teething? Not one, not two but three molars are piercing which causes him pain (he's also very sensitive to pain).
I was checking Ebay last week and found some Lanarte kits that were on the "buy it now" list. I couldn't resist when I saw this rare kit:
This wreath is OOP and very hard to find and usually goes up to 45$ - 50$ (or more) . And I was able to buy it for a very reasonnable price. The fabric is evenweave (my favorite) so I won't have to change it !!!
Then I saw that one:
I hesitated but it's another OOP hard to find kit that I have hardly seen on Ebay (or it was illegal copies). It also has an evenweave fabric to please me !!! Will you believe that I sent my check right away but forgot to add the shipping price The seller sent me an email saying : " thank you for your fast payment, it's too bad you didn't add the shipping!" What an embarrassment .... She had sent the kits anyway. (she's lucky I'm an honest person, right? I sent her another chack the same day ) I'm so happy with my purchase and may stitch the wreath (I love the happy colors) as soon as the squirrel is finished.
The squirrel? Here it is:
I think I almost completed the squirrel itself but it's not close to be all finished as the whole piece is stitched. I usually stitch pieces where there is always some kind of unstitched parts. Not this time (I guess it makes me feel the pain of the HAED stitchers )
Tomorrow, Steb goes to the zoo with his school. I tried to volunteer to go with them but all the spots were already taken . I hope everything is going to be fine ...
