Stitch from stash

Another month went by and I've stitched only from the stash. Really, I even didn't stitch that much... I started this little ornie and I finished it - the stitching part I mean.
July was a challenging month, month of recovery I would say. I've survived my birthday and made career changes - now I'm looking forward to the rest of this year.

So long my friends,

Weekly Reflections

Thanks to Deborah I came across scattered life collective. I liked what I was reading so I joined and from now on you can read my story on a weekly basis.

State of Being

I've survived my big birthday! It was hard but I did it. I also made some major career changes. Until now I did accounting full time and I had a 'secret life' of a beauty consultant with Mary Kay Cosmetics. After 20 years or so I've realized that being a beauty consultant makes me feel like a million $$, makes me happy - on the other hand - accounting doesn't make me happy, just pays the bills... Well, I decided to be MK beauty consultant full time and do accounting just part time (for now). Let's see where that will lead me.

Wednesday I'm leaving for MK Seminar in Toronto and I'm so excited! Four days filled with classes, demonstrations (my favorite one is with the makeup artist) and, of course, a Gala Night. Gala night is awesome - it is almost like the Academy Awards but better. Instead of Oscars consultants are awarded with cars, diamond jewellery, exotic trips, money - next year I'll be on the stage collecting some of the rewards, cross my heart. After all, sky is the limit.  Here is a little  promo clip from the upcoming event.

I haven't stitch much last week... this is progress on a new start called 'Courage' from Little House Needleworks

Good things

  • Finally I met Janet. We know each other for a while through the blogland, it was a treat to meet her in person. Here we are, I'm wearing beautiful shawl made by Janet.

  • birthday presents
  • clean up my desk
  • Frosty got her annual vaccination
  • Less bugs this summer
  • Blue sky and sunshine
  • A little rain and a free 'car wash'
So long my friends,

Happy Dance

My Sunshine is done and I'm dancing but not Tango Argentina. Oh, well - bravo to Germans!

The chart is going to Janet, she is the one who won my challenge. The best part is that finally we'll meet in person!

This weekend I'd join stitching along with FB group. I was stitching a freebie on 32 ct  Queen Anne Lace jobelan with Plymouth Red from Carrie's Creation. I'm pretty happy with the progress
and it looks like I can have it done just for my birthday. Yeah, I'm a Cancer and this Wednesday I'm getting hit by the big one... Let me tell ya, I'm not looking forward to it. Everybody is telling me that it's just a number - but, gosh, IT IS A BIG NUMBER AND I DO NOT LIKE IT! Does any one has an idea how to survive that day and all days after...? OMG, only 40 years to go before I'm a century old...

So long my friends,

Who will win the 2014 World Cup?

Two more games and we will have a winner. Who that will be? My heart was going for Brazil but after yesterday I'm not so sure any more. Even Jesus in Rio is upset... for more pics check this site.

3rd Place Final Brazil July 12 (4pm) in Brasilia on ESPN Netherlands
Final Germany July 13 (8pm) in Rio De Janeiro on ABC Argentina

 The good thing about these games is that My Sunshine is almost finish:

It looks like I'll be doing my happy dance this Sunday. And if Argentina wins the Cup I will dance with them. Go Argentina Go!

So long my friends,
