The long weekend...

was awesome and too bad it's over. I went on an adventure with Alexander Dumas - I was sailing Mediterranean Sea with Edmond Dantes , I was thrown to jail and have escaped, found the treasure and and was on the hunt for revenge, but most of all  I've done some serious stitching! I have a couple of new starts:
-  'A Good Marriage' by Lizzie Kate

- and since I was on a very cheerful mood, I decided to stitch 'Festive Cheerkat'

when he is done he will look like this:

And, of course, I was working a little on the 'Halloween House'

Mel of Epic Stitching has a game on her blog and she wants to know:

1. Rain or Snow?
Rain. I love the sound of the rain, I love my umbrella and I absolutely love my 'free' car wash. Don't get me wrong, I like snow too - when I'm in warm indoors stitching or cuddling with a book.
2. Are you in any SAL's?
Yep, 'Halloween House', 'Computer Catastrophes' and 'Shore Patrol'
3. How many WIP do you have on the go?
I do not know exactly... I think over 30...
4. Do you do any other crafts other than stitching? (ie: beading, scrapbooking, knitting, etc)
I knit sometimes
5. Do you watch sports? Have a favourite sport?
Heavy weight boxing, winter Olympics
6. Are you active? Have a workout program, bike, run etc.?
Not really, I hike sometimes and stitch a lot.
7. Favourite genre of music? (ie: rock, country, blues, etc)
I love jazz, blues, rock and classic , Mozart is my favourite.
8. What type of cell phone do you have?
9. Smallest project you've ever done?
O, it would be one of ornaments
10. Largest project you've ever done?
Frederick the Literate I think...
11. How long have you been blogging?
Four years.
