Stitchy Saturday

Finally I had a very relaxing day. Can you imagine? No obligations, no deadlines, no exams, no courses - the whole weekend is mine and all mine! About 5 in the morning I was awake by rain drops hitting the roof. I love the sound of the rain and for some reason I couldn't go back to sleep. So I finish 'The last honest woman' by Nora Roberts and started to stitch later, after breakfast. For a long time I didn't look at my 'Halloween House', I figured that's a great piece for today. I'm stitching this as a SAL with Linda of Stitching with my Furbabies. There is (I think) ten of us working on this pattern and everybody is way ahead of me (not for long, let me tell ya!). This is how much I had done before today:


and this how it looks this evening:


So long my friends,
Evalina

  2. Isn't it a bit early for Halloween? It's so lovely to have a whole weekend with no obligations and you can fill your time doing what you actually want to do.

  7. I love waking up early before everyone else and enjoying a cup of coffee in the quiet and then picking up my stitching. It's so nice to stitch without all 3 of my boys awake and interrupting me.

    I really like the way your piece is coming along, the fabric looks just perfect for it.

  16. Hey Evalina..I'm a new follower, I got your name from Karen Walker's blog...I have never cross stitched in my life, but I wanted to 'meet' you because of some of the similarities we share...my actual name is Eva Marie, and I'm of Polish decent, and I live in British Columbia...your needle work is just lovely. Have a great day!

  19. Wonderful progress!! I think I'd be angry to be woken up, especially from the rain. Don't get me wrong, I love the rain, but I also love my sleep which I don't get enough of lately, lol!

  20. Progress indeed! As long as you don't get cross stitching cross stitching! :)
    That little bit of rain that interfered with the road must have been quite a lot!
