My friend Pumpkin has created a special chart for the breast cancer awareness month: check it out on her blog . You should follow her blog: she's very funny (especially when she does laundry ) and she's a great stitcher !!!
I now have 101 followers! Thanks to the 5 persons who decided to follow my blog. Who is the 100 th follower?
I am now on Facebook : Yvonne made me do it !!! (I swear !!! ) If you want to follow me there, my name is Chiloe Mu (I sound chinese that way but I'm not !!! I just didn't want to give my real name on the internet .) So far, I have resisted to ALL the facebook games ... (even though Cindy is trying to get me addicted
Don't you like when you try to upload some pictures and a message from Blogger pops up telling you: Bad request ! What do you mean bad request? It's only cross stitch !!!
This week, we learned that the magazine De Fil en Aiguille that was loved by many stitchers is going bankrupt. The last issue was the one I showed you last week. I hope another publisher will buy the magazine because it is one of the best. My favorite designer, Veronique Enginger, was a regular contributor to the magazine. This is so sad. I bought an extra copy of the last issue with the botanic studies to do a give away one of these days!!! Do you like that idea? So stay tuned !!!
Chuy got a MP3 player from one of his best friend from California. The guy recorded 580 songs from their chidhood/ young years. It took us a while to find out how it works but we mastered the beast and since then , I have a pretty silent husband (he is usually very talktative .... very rare among men but I did marry an exception !!! That's what happen when you marry exotic bird ! ) , a husband who shouts "what?" very loud (with the earphones on ! ) , who sings (very loud as well) mexican songs or Michael Jackson songs. Then he makes me listen to songs (sometimes old boring mexican songs because that's what he likes ... ( while I'm more a rock and roll girl who loves energetic songs !!! ) and tells me: "it's good, isn't it? " ... Me: "you mean for a retirement home? "
I noticed it's been a while since I haven't showed some stash so here it is (yes, there are some but I couldn't resist a good bargain: I'm sure you understand me, right? )
I always loved that snowman:
And some sunflowers with the exact same style as my fuchsias: watercolor ( = lots of 1/2 ... but only with yellows and ... greens )
I won't show you any pictures of the fuchsias because I didn't stitch last night ...
