Not much stitching done....

There was so much going on in my life this week, that I didn't have much time for stitching. I was in bed with the flu the first days of the week, not really in the mood for anything. Then on Wednesday it was my brother's birthday, so we had some friends for dinner. That same day my cousin came to visit, and she's staying with us for a few days. So everytime I took my stitching out of the bag something or someone interrupted me. But I'm glad I was able to finish at least one more of the bears, there's only one left now.

Here's my progress at 110 hrs...

The other day while organizing all my stash, I found this piece by Stoney Creek. I didn't even remember I had it. This project has a loooon story. I started it a couple of years ago while working in the north of Peru. I wanted to have it done for Christmas of 2003, but because I was missing some colors I wasn't able to. Then I went to study to Spain, so I left at my mom's house. Then when my parents separated last year, my mom sent all my stuff to my apartment here in Lima, so it stayed there until last weekend when I decided to organize.

I was surprised when I saw's almost I have to finish it. I'll put it in my rotation now, as my weekend project.

"In other news", my sister Carla is traveling to Europe in a couple of weeks. She's so exited, she's never been there before. She has to attend some classes in Maastricht as part as her MBA. She's staying there for 3 weeks, then she has 2 free weeks until she starts classes here again, so she will make a quick tour through some countries there, not sure which ones yet.

I'm so happy for her, she's hardly had any free weekend in almost 9 months, so she'll probably have a good time.

Hey Carol :)
I am so sorry to hear you have been sick. ((((((Feel better hugs))))) I do hope that you are feeling better now. Take care of yourself.
Your progress on the bears looks great! AND, I love the snowman piece. I have that one too, but have never started it. I will love watching yours grow!

I know what you mean about not much stitching...this time of year is so busy for me. Christmas is my favorite time of year and between now and then, I am so busy with decorating and planning/hosting parties/get-togethers that I don't have a lot of stitching time...but I wouldn't change it! I LOVE it!!

Good luck to Carla on her trip-sounds like FUN!

Thanks for sharing and feel better :)

Hello Carol, you have beautiful pieces to work on. The bears are great and the bermuda triangle too...I have been eyeing that one for some time, but haven't come around into buying it yet...I'm not even sure it is still available (except maybe on e-bay). Well done on the stitching! Ann.
