Sunday

Today I have a special thought for my bogging friend Velda who is about to start the biggest fight of her life. Please, keep her and her family in your thoughts or in your prayers. Thanks.

Am I still stitching? Yes, I am and actually an old friend came back !!! I haven't touched it for a long time and have started it 10 months ago to tell you the truth ... I started it on november 9 th 2008 and stitched it every day until febuary 6 th 2009; then I got tired of all the one over two around the design. So this is how it was in febuary after 3 months of stitching: (click to enlarge)

And this is how it was yesterday after an 8 months break:

And here are some details of what I stitched (and honestly I wonder what I'm stitching it as we can barely see it from far ... ):

All the pink on the bottom (I'll have to stitch some long stitches at the end) I still need to add some very pale pink.

Some pink around that one:

Some yellow around here:

And don't think I'm done ... I did leave a lot of 1/2 at the end. Silly me !!!
