Recipe for a fast progress !!!

1 - have a child at an all day pony camp (but any camp will work )

2 - have a toddler who takes a nap ( will help if the dad also takes a nap !!!)

3 - have a pre-teen who entertains himself ( don't look if he plays the DS instead of reading a 200 pages book ... )

4 - watch a good movie that you already saw ( so that you concentrate on your stitching and not on the movie )

5 - have a great pattern (with a newly enlarged chart !!! Yeah !!! )

6 - love what you're doing

7 - have a glass of water close to you (in case your smoking needle catches fire with your fabric )

Brew it all together in the stitching cauldron and your progress will amaze the world !!!

Of course, if you have a migraine, like me toaday, you may prefer take it easy and rest .



But I did my back to school shoping this morning and I don't think I forgot a lot of things. This afternnon, we found the perfect desk for Emma (understand a desk that fits the tiny space in her bedroom.)



Here, we hate mouting furniture but this one was not too much pain (understand we didn't fight over it )



Tadaaaaa:


Yes we even got her a pink chair that matches the desk beautifully. (I love the butterfly myself )



But look who thought the desk was his A rolling chair is soooooooo much fun when you are 4 years old


Yes, it's white everywhere in this house and it's driving crazy .....

Hi Chiloe, your flower update is looking lovely.
Hope your migraine disappeared by now.

I think it will take Emma 2.5 seconds to send her brother flying in that chair down the hallway when he is caught....it has a seat belt, right?

Annette said...

I haven't visited for a while, sorry. I love the recipe. I hope the migraine settled quickly. Fortunately, I've only ever had one of them. Desk and sweet small child look fabulous. Hugs from me.

I've been following your recipe for a few weeks now! Timmy and Evie nap, Josh does whatever he's doing (usually video games, whatever) and I have hours and hours of old episodes of Little House on the Prairie recorded on the DVR. Works wonders for stitching progress!

Carolyn NC said...

just make shure the desk is not against the radiator, or your nice even worksuface might become quite wobbly in winter !

I like your recipe for fast stitching progress. I shall have to try and borrow some of those points.

The desk looks great and what a lovely spot for it looking out the window at those beautiful flowers.
