Emma actual birthday !!!

Last time, I forgot to tell you that Emma's birthday was actually on july 8 th. We did her party on saturday because school finished on thursday and I was afraid if we would have waited too long that all the kids would have left on vacations.

Thanks for your birthday wishes for her. She's such a sweet girl. I can't believe she's 9 already ... We did celebrate her "real" birthday yesterday at my mom's. The cake was a strawberry cake very very delicious (to die for to be exact !!! )
She didn't expect her grand ma's gift: a radio set with Hello Kitty on it !!!!!!!!!!!!! I now expect no more fighting between Pierre and her for the radio !
It was definitely a Hello Kitty day yesterday !!! She's also got her first watch.
She really had a good day !!!

Now, you will have to enlarge to be able to see my wonderful 1 over 2 progress. Yes, because I suffered people stitching that 1/2 ! I tried to stitch two days on 1/2 and yes, I did suffer because I don't find any pleasure stitching with one thread only ... Unfortunately, I have more Lanarte kits that use 1/2.... Not all Lanarte designs have 1/2 though. I understand it gives something more to the finished piece but it's a real pain for me ... In the future, I'll try to avoid a piece that require green stitched on 1/2 !!! So last night, I gave up on the 1/2 (oops ... ) to have a lot of fun stitching on 2/2. Why do I progress faster on 2/2 ? Can you explain me why?
I'm still late at commenting on your blogs. Sorry about that but it's hard to find time with the three kids at home all day long ....
