Guess what...

my sister Carol is stitching again *yay* :) She hasn't touched a needle since May of last year when she finished this cow pillow. Last month when she came home to visit, I always showed her my finishes and progress of the HAED pieces I'm doing and one day she said to me she wished she had time to stitch. I said to her of course you can stitch, you watch at least 2 hours of tv you could stitch then :) !!! I guess she thought about it, cause next thing I now she was asking me to help her pick a HAED design to stitch :) She chose QS Olivia's Orchard (artwork by Hannah Disney) and began to stitch it on February 2nd. Here's her progress to date, she's waiting for some DMC threads that's why you see a lot of blank spaces.

Adivinen que?...mi hermana Carol esta bordando otra vez *yupii* :) No habia tocado la aguja desde mayo del año pasado donde termino una almohada de vaquita. El mes pasado cuando venia a visitarme, siempre le enseñaba lo que habia terminado y mi avance en los diseño HAED que estoy bordando; un dia me dijo que como le gustaria tener tiempo para bordar y entonces yo al toque le dije que en realidad si tenia tiempo, que lo hiciera en esas 2 o 3 horas que ve tele al dia :) Supongo que lo penso un poquito porque despues me pidio que la ayudara a elegir un diseño de HAED para bordar :) Eligio QS Olivia's Orchard (arte de Hannah Disney) y lo empezo el 2 de febrero. Este es su progreso al dia de hoy; esta esperando algunos hilo DMC que le faltan por eso se ven espacios en blanco.





I guess it's time to show you my progress on The Guardian (this is for you Jennifer as I know you wanted to see an updated pic :) ). This is a pic after 170.5 hrs of stitching, that's more than 20 hours since the last time I showed it. Do you think I'll be able to finish it sometime this year....I really hope so, I don't want to carry it on another year and I begining to feel bad making my dad wait so long for his wolves :{

Supongo que es tiempo de mostrarles mi progreso en The Guardian. Este es mi avance luego de 170.5 horas de bordar en el, son 20 horas más desde la última vez que se los mostré. Creen que los terminaré este año?...espero que sí; no quiero que siga como labor en progreso por otro año mas, aparte ya me siento mal de hacer esperar a papá tanto tiempo por sus lobos :{


Chiloe: El tipo de acabado que le di al adorno de Navidad es super facil! Deberias intentarlo, te vas a dar cuenta que no es dificil como crees :) Y con respecto a tu otra pregunta...pues nada ella me escribio (creo que vio fotos en el blog The Worlds Largest Collection of Smalls) y me pregunto si queria bordarle y claro bueno le dije que si! :)

The Guardian is coming along beautifully.
And congrats to your sister stitching again - I always find that's my favourite time to stitch, in front of the TV ... I can't watch TV and be comfortable without my stitching in hand :)
