...just back from Livigno...

I’m just back from Livigno!!! Wow what a wonderful week, the slopes were perfect… we havw skied a lot and all together ( Alice is quite clever now, she likes skiing as you can see from her smile in the photo!!!) luckily no broken legs :o)

… on Friday there was an heavy snowfall I have never seen so many snow!!!

After skiing I apply myself to X-stitch, naturally….I worked on the Hand Towel for the exchange of EMS Board…as it’s for an exchange I can’t show you any photo now !! The hand towel I have bought has an insert of Aida 11 so I used 3 strands for the stitching….the last time I have used this kind of fabric was long time ago and I have to say I’ll never use it in the future… the X are really large and I don’t like it very much I prefer Aida 14…I’ll take it in account for the next time!!!

Finally I bought DMC 746 so I have finished my HEN

I have also started the pig…the progress will be more considerable…but I noticed that I have make a big mistake …I have stitched all the right cheeks and the right ear two X stitch down from their correct position so I have to unmake all the work done :o(

Tomorrow back to work…:o(…oof!!!
