Princess and the P

I've been working a little bit on Princess and the P. I have to stitch for short periods of time on it because last Friday my nephew broke my eyeglasses (which I need to stitch) so my eyes get really tired if I stitch for too long; this weekend I'll go buy some new ones, it's really difficult to stitch, watch tv, be on the computer or do anything without them!
Have a nice weekend!

He estado avanzado un poco "Princess and the P". Tengo que bordar por cortos periodos de tiempo en él, pues el viernes pasado mi sobrino rompió mis anteojos (los cuales necesito para bordar) y mis ojos se cansan mucho si bordo por mucho tiempo. Este fin de semana iré a comprar unos nuevos, pues es bastante pesado bordar, ver tv, estar en la computadora o hacer cualquier otra cosa sin ellos!
Buen fin de semana!

Hi Carla, Happy New Year!!

Wow, you've been busy with stitching and finishes since last I visited.
Where to begin???

I'm partial to LHN designs, and since you've stitched several of them lately those are the ones that stand out.

I really didn't think that Peace from the JCS Ornaments issue was very Christmasy to look at, but it sure is pretty. And I love how you've finished it. That pert little pink bow on top really sets the design off nicely.

Thankful for Ewe is so cute too. I love the sheep. What a relief that it wasn't lost in the mail. How sad, and frustrating, that would have been. I guess that's always a worry when participating in exchanges.

I don't have any San Man designs in my stash yet, but the one that you stitched of the snowman (Magic Hat) is adorable. I like the change that you made with his eyes. It gives his face a really sweet expression. Nice call. Love the sparkly material that you stitched him on too.

I look forward to seeing your progress on The Princess and the P.
It looks like a fun stitch, and so pretty in pink.

I'm trying to imagine spending New Years Eve/Day at the beach. Hmm...if we did that here we'd have to bundle up good and proper to avoid freezing noses and toeses.

Mind you, it's quite the tradition here for groups of people to don bathing suits and head out on New Years day to a nearby beach for a dip in the lake. They're called Polar Bear swims, and usually are staged to raise money for charity.

At a signal the volunteers run en mass into the water and immerse themselves totally, before running back to the beach to dry off again and warm up. It always makes me shudder to watch them on the tv news.

Hope you've got your new glasses now Carla. My DH left his reading glasses at church over Christmas and was so annoyed with himself because he couldn't read anything without them.

My warmest best wishes to you and your family for the New Year Carla.

Your glasses ordeal reminds me... I am down to my last pair of contacts and my prescription is expired! Looks like I'll be going to see the eye doctor next week!

Wendy said...

You had some great progress on Princess and the Pea! Sorry to hear about the broken glasses though. I hope you were able to pick up new ones without too much trouble.

That is sooo sweet, I do sometimes wish I had a girl and not boys rofl. Although I wouldn't change them for the world.

Lovely Carla
