...still alive...

Hi to everyone :o) as usual I’m not very diligent with my post…but this is a chaotic
period…and the future wouldn’t be better :o( I have to take my state exam to became an engineer at the end of may so I have to study… what a drag!!

After all my complaint about the weather… Spring finally arrived!! And it’s wonderful!!! The temperature is perfect!!! The trees are full of pink and white flowers WOW!!! I like this season…we can spend a lot of time out in the garden …thanks to this wonderful days Alice learns to ride a bicycle (this is the bicycle of my DH when he was a child and it works perfectly!!)….she is pleased with herself :o) good for her!!

Today a dear friend has took her degree so last week I decide to stitch a Tatty Teddy card for her (she likes Tatty Teddy very much) as chance would have it I start stitching very late so this morning I got up at an ungodly hour to finish the backstitching of the teddy (it’s a very hard work!!)….I finish it just on time to go work….it was really worth it!!! My friend loves the card very much!!! This is my first Tatty Teddy I like the end result but how many grey!! :o) at the end I couldn’t discern different grey shade….

Last week I read Howl’s Moving Castle book by Diana Wynne Jones….it’s marvellous!!! It’s even better of the movie….I read it in one go!!! I advise it!!!

Last week I received my April Cross Stitcher….my to do list:
  • Relax with Archie (by Margaret Sherry)….for me
  • Exclusive: Yo Yo Baby bliss….for a new baby (when HE/SHE will arrive :o)

Thank you very much for all your comment on my envelope….

For Kris I closed my envelope with two button as you can see in the second photo, Blinne’s envelope instead is closed with press-stud. My envelope’s original measure were 15x15 centimeters but I’m not very clever with the sewing machine so they changed a little bit :o) You can find some instruction here made by BeaPer Kris : per chiudere la mia busta ho usato due bottoni come puoi vedere dalla foto, Blinde invece ha usato dei bottoncini automatici invisibili sul davanti. Le misure originali della mia busta dovevano essere 15x15 cm…purtroppo non sono un mago alla macchina da cucire così le misure sono leggermente cambiate :o)Puoi trovare alcune istruzioni quisul sito di Bea

For Carol and Malaika maybe I could try a “mystery”…if the designer is one of my favourite…a question: where I can find a "mystery" ?

Alice looks like she is having a lot of fun on your DH old bike. Glad Spring as finally arrived for you. Your TT came out so nice. I'm glad your friend like the card. I had the same problem when I did mine. I couldn't tell one grey from the other by the end. :(

Your picture of Alice is so sweet! It looks like such a beautiful day - I'm so glad you're able to get out and enjoy the beauty of Spring.
Good luck with your studying and exam. Be sure to take some time to say hello now and then. :D
