....Epiphany & Eeyore...

Today is the Epiphany and it’s traditional that an ugly old woman brings children little gift(I don't know if this is a worldwide tradition !?!)…Alice was really happy today... she has received a lot of candy and no coal (the old woman brings coal to the naughty children !!)

I have started and finished Eeyore kit for my sister…I have made a mess I have used two strands instead of one…I realize it when it was too late...I was in the middle of the stitching so I continue to stitch in this way, the only problem is that there isn’t enough Lavender floss so I search the Dmc floss that is more similar …I think that the difference between the two kind of floss is little…:o)

I put the pattern on the top of a pink (Alice has painted it!!) box as showed in the magazine and give it to my sister.

Yesterday my X stitch order is arrived !!! hurrah!!! I received Touching the Autumn Sky (Mirabilia) it’s the most elegant chart I’ve ever bought!!! And all the Flip it Stamp of Lizzie kate for the SAL of Friend Gather unfortunately I have forgotten to order the January stamp what ever was I thinking of!?! Now I have to make a new order :o( and postpone the starting of the Sal I think we have to start with January….
