Summer vacations



I'm trying to get used to the new blogger. Surprisingly, it didin't warm me that they change a little bit !!! LOL 

I haven't been here for a while as you may have noticed it or not.   I wanted to, I swear. I thought I could become the daily blogger that I used to but I lost my mojo and still can't find it ... ANyway, I'm still a stitcher and still stitch almost daily. I still take my daily picture but am too lazy I guess, to upload the pictures daily. I lack discipline and have lots of ups and downs that keep me from being the one I usd to be ... 

I did finish my autum harvest but I'm not as happy as I would have wanted to with the finish ... 



Then I chose to stitch my little Vera the mouse on a Tutti Fruitti from the old Silkweaver . I just love my Vera and the fabric was perfect for it . The kit is OOP and I was lucky to find it a long time ago. 



Now I'm stitching my summer bouquet from Marjolein Bastin. I really love it. The colors are beautiful and it's a pleasure to stitch. 


Will you believe that at the begining of the month, Emma turned 12 years old? Seems like yesterday when she was that cute little baby and now she's a pre teen. 


Like every year, she went to pony camp for a week. 


She loves to ride so much. Steb is growing also and he turned 7 years old on march. He's still our little cutie and he has started to learn how to play the piano. He's learning very quickly which came as a surprise for us and he's in advance already. 



Pierre is fine: he's a teenager .... What else do I need to add? LOL  

I hope you are all fine and stitch stitching. 

Hugs

Yay, you're blogging again. Autumn Harvest is gorgeous! Curious as to why you're not as happy with it. Vera is cute. You're right about the fabric being perfect for it. Oh how I miss the old Silkweaver. Lovely progress on Summer Bouquet.

Hugs,
Veronica.

All of your stitching is gorgeous Chiloe. Great to have you blog again. You don't need to say anything about teenagers, I have one too. Great photos of your children.

contente de te lire ! je passe régulièrement...
Emma est très jolie... elle fera des ravages !
tes ouvrages sont superbes. J'aime beaucoup Véra ! peut-être nous montreras tu l'avancée de ton bouquet à la rentrée ?
je te comprends.. mettre des articles régulièrement demande du temps.. mon blog est aussi laissé de côté...
Je t'embrasse et te souhaite un bel été, le soleil semble enfin être présent !

Margie said...

Looks like you've been really busy :) Your stitching looks absolutely beautiful! :)

I must admit, I have not been a very avid blogger in the past, but I think I'm doing much better at posting more often. :) I made a lot of changes after discovering lots of new things that I could do to my page. :)

Looking forward to reading more of your posts! :)

I have not been blogging as much as I would like either, but I too stitch daily. All of your stitching is looking great.

Your children are all so beautiful and growing up so quickly.

Welcome back Chiloe. Have been missing your lovely finishes and updates.
Kids grow up so fast don't they. Very happy birthday to Emma and Steb.
Very pretty finishes, as always :)

Bonjour Chiloe,
Je ne connaissais pas cette grille TUTTI FRUITTI de Lanarte, où pourrais-je acheter cette VERA?
Dans l'attente de votre réponse, sincères salutations. catvache

Such great work! And the kiddos sound as they are doing well too :)I've been lacking the stitching bug this year and it seems last year as well. Hopefully it returns soon.
