And here is my current WIP (Asian Scene):

I I think that I have made a nice progress last weekend. I'm about 85% done.This time I'm not leaving back stitches to te end, so far I like it.

Happy International Women's Day!

Today is International Women's Day - a feast left over from the times of the communist regime in Europe, celebrated mainly in countries of the Soviet bloc and its satellites.

Like in the previous years, the day is marked by marches and protests organized by post-communist groups and radical leftist feminists.

Let’s make a difference. Let’s forget the politics and feminists and let's celebrate this day with flowers, wine and pampering. Let’s celebrate the Goddess in every woman! Happy Woman’s Day!

Would you like to win a fabulous book by Joan Elliot "A Woman's World in Cross Stitch"? Please let me know by Friday (March 13th) how did you pamper yourself today or how someone made your day today very special and a week from today I will announce a winner. If you are a man, please tell me how did you pamper that special woman (wife, girlfriend, sister, mother, friend etc,) today and your name also will be entered for a draw.

week in review

I haven't done much... but I did some shopping! I bought floss and now I have every DMC color, many of them in multiple quantity. I also bought stand
and more scrolling frames. I had no idea how much easier is to stitch using stand.

It is cold, and when I say cold I mean it!

Yesterday morning it warmed up a little and almost felt like a spring... The sun was shining, the roads were dry and in excellent shape and the black spruce looked much greener in the morning sun. Well, that did not last long! With a rapid switch to the north wind temperatures dropped, snow start falling and wind blowing... During lunch hour I decided to go shopping, I went to a car and, to my surprise, it was covered with a half an inch of ice. And after work I drove home in almost blizzard conditions. Today is cold and cloudy with a promise of sunshine later in a day.

Well, ahead of me is a week full of exams. I'm writing one on Monday, second on Wednesday and the last one on Friday ... Friday the 13th! I hope it will be lucky for me.
