It's a celebration !

A celebration of life! It was on a november 11 th that we got the devasted news that Pierre was sick with cancer. I will never forget that date and what I felt that day. He's now 18 years old and even though life still has some challenges for him, he's a heathly boy.  If you want to read his story, you can read this blog post I wrote in 2008: the story of a boy.

My latest two finishes

First I finished Santa's feathered friend by Dimensions. I switched to a 28 ct lugana because I still don't like to stitch on aida. I love that design but you may remember I love stitching Christmassy designs.

I really enjoyed stitching my Santa and din't really know what to pick after that so after searching through my stash , I found another small design that got my attention: Christmas pudding by Anchor. I also changed the fabric and I picked an odd cut from the old Silkweaver: a Poltergeist opalescent. It was a quick stitch that I really enjoyed.

So what's next will you ask me?  What did I choose now? Well, stay tuned !!! 

Thanks for stopping by fellow stitchers.
