Happy dance and a new start !

I know everybody has their glitter ball ready to dance with me because the little mouse is finished !!! It's really a cute design, perfect for a little girl.

So after deep thinking I finally chose my next project. At one point, I even considered using Karen's method (eenie, meenie, minee, mo ) But I decided to be a little bit more rational (don't know why ) And the winner is : Roses and delftblue by lanarte !!! Sometimes I have trouble choosing my next project. I don't know why ... I still love all I have in my stash but I want THE project that will keep me going ... The Marjolein Bastin is not big ( 27 x 34 cm) so I may stitch it fast. There is 38 colours total. I'm a little bit disappointed about the colors. See, when I buy a kit , I expect the colors from the kit's picture to be the same when I stitch the pattern. I fell in love with the soft colors on the picture and they are way darker on the fabric ... I know I didn't make any mistake because as you know, the lanarte kits have pre - sorted threads . I know it's too early to have an idea of the final look.

Yesterday, I went to visit a friend and help her taking care of her kids while she was giving ride to one of her daughters who was invited to different places. Pierre came back with a migraine and threw up ... He has migraines since he got chimio shots in his spine during his treatment. Today, we are going to go to the restaurant with my parents to celebrate Pierre's birthday all together !!! It's a steak place where you can eat buffalo's steak I don't think I am ready for new experiences ... Pierre will get his birthday gifts from all of us: 2 Nintendo DS games and some Pokemon cards. There is only a little tiny problem: he's been grounded for 10 days and can't play because he misbehaved yesterday

Edit: It happened to Pierre last year too ... I guess this boy will never learn ...

Have a great sunday

Aww your finish is sooo cute! Such a pretty little mouse.

I'm glad you finally decided on a new project. Eenie, meenie would have worked you know lol. I've used it plenty of times ha ha ha.

Poor Pierre - his birthday and he can't play with his new games because he's grounded. I guess he'll remember next year not to misbehave right before his birthday! lol

Great finish Chiloe. That is a fantastic job.

I'm looking forward to seeing your new piece come together.

Poor Pierre. Migraines are horrible, I feel sorry for him. And grounded on his birthday! He is doing well. :grin:

Congratulations! She's adorable. Poor Pierre. My sister used to do the same thing - she would get so excited about some upcoming event that she would lose control. Good news is that she matured out of it. Hang in there!
