Stitchy update

My sweet NaBloPoMo isn't going so well... for some, unknown to me reason, I can't post every day... hmm, I have to work on that.

In the meantime I was stitching a little. I was working on the 'Buttercup Biscornu'. It's coming along nicely and I absolutely love it.

I also put a few stitches on 'So Long Kitty'. It is almost done, just a few more leafs...

A while ago on somebody's blog I came across a lovely pattern. Of course I fell in love with it and had to have it! It took me a while and all the way to France to find it, and it finally arrived last week. Have a look:

While browsing this lovely on-line store I also fell in love with another chart, 'In her world':

Here is a close up:

And that's not all. I also received a very cute free pattern with my order:

Now I'm soooo anxious to start stitching!

Last Sunday I had a few 'visitors':

 Believe me, these are not chickens!

Last Monday was a holiday in the Yukon. It was Discovery Day. This year it was very special, I was invited to a BBQ with PM (Prime Minister)! Of course I took a picture with Mr. Harper - will post it later.

So long my friends,


  1. Aww sweet stitching and I love the new charts too..
    Free pattern is so cute too.

  2. we all keep finding things to stitch. the yellow is really pretty. the visitors are so cute.

  3. I really like both the buttercup and kitty pieces - both look great. Love the new stash and isn't it always nice to receive a free chart? Hope you can solve your technical problems quickly.

  4. Great progress on all your pieces. I love the new charts you got.


  5. Your work is beautiful. Beautiful stitches, lovely finishing.

    Are those quail? Don't know if they would be indiginous so far north, but why not?

  6. I love the bright yellow biscornu. Enjoy your new charts.

  7. The Buttercup Biscornu is so cute! I love the bright yellow colors. You found some wonderful charts from France. Happy Stitching!

  8. Congratulations on your invitation - what an honor! Buttercup Biscornu looks wonderful, and the charts you acquired are beautiful. I really love anything with a stitcher on it, but those take the cake.


  9. Your buttercup biscornu is so beautiful! I love charts from France and have yet to purchase one. I love your choice of patterns and can't wait to see you start them!! Cute little visitors! Are they grouse?
