We are stewing!!! It’s sultry!!! This is my first working summer and it is hard!! But I have to do it so …Take heart!!! Luckily Alice DD and Luca DH are at the seaside this week…so they get some fresh air!!…but I’m quite sad I miss them…well Friday I’ll reach them at the seaside..

As this week I’m alone at home I would like to apply to my hobby all the time…this is the result:

Very poor, don’t you!?!….I’m full of good intention but the warm and the thousand commitments…don’t help me :o)

This week I received a lot of new supplies for my stash…

First of all the April 2005 issue of Quick and Easy with MS Ballerinas I bought on Ebay

Then my last purchase at Sew and So some Lizzie Kate buttons for my flip it, a white bandaida and some treads…they are very fast in the delivery!!

Last Wednesday SBQ’s question was suggested by Angela and is:

How many cross stitch books do you own and how often do you use them?

I have 3 cross stitch book and I use them rarely….I stitch only one project from one of it a Beatrix Potter Sampler never finished :o(

...SBEBB Melanie's exchange...

Yesterday I found a very nice surprise in my mail box...the SBEBB Melanie’s exchange piece from Natalie
She stitch a very lovely design for me…I love it very much…the beads are wonderful!!!

She send me the remaining supplies and a delightful notebook with a little mirror…very useful!!!

Thank you very much Natalie I enjoy everything!!!

..SBQ&World Championship...

Yesterday there was the first match for Italy at World Championship…we won so… “well begun is half done.” Go Italy!!!

Now.... ....I'm always late :o)

The first request comes from Vash who is requesting pictures of the back of your stitching… are you brave enough to give this one a shot?

Yes…I’m enough brave :o)….this is the back of my Flip It cl
oth, I’m quite satisfied about it:

The second request comes from Singular Stitches , and she is asking for "a pictorial tour of [the] special place that you go to create your wonderful stitched creations."

The tour starts from my sofa …I love to stitch rolled up on the corner of my sofa with all my stitching supply around!!!

The tour goes on with my table…this is another place I love when I stitch because of the light…As You can see there is a very useful floor lamp…perfect for my eyes!!

This SBQ was suggested by Carol and is:

Do you collect charts by one particular designer, yet have never stitched anything by that designer? If so, which designer and why do you collect the charts but have not yet stitched any of them?

I collect chart by Margaret Sherry, Lizzie Kate and I collected chart by Jeremiah Junction and Precious Moment (now I lose interest) and I have stitch at least one chart by each one.

This SBQ was suggested by Nancy
and is:

What is your favorite specialty stitch? Which one is your least favorite? Why?

I Know few speciality stitch: French knots and lazy daisy …I think ny favourite is lazy daisy because I love the end result!!! :o)

This SBQ was suggested by Jenna and is:

Lately, it seems that many stitching bloggers have experienced a loss of their stitching mojo. Have you ever lost your stitching mojo? If so, how did you get it back and how long did it take?

Well sometimes I lose my stitching mojo due to everyday frenetic life…but I get it back as soon as the peace came back :o)

Hi to everyone…after a very cold week end at the seaside …BRR…(at least the sky was spectacular, as you can see!!!)... I came back home and I find an horrible weather…rain hail and wind!!! Where is summer?!?

On Monday I received the April issue of Quick and Easy I bought on e-bay last month….I bought it for Margaret Sherry Secret Garden Booklet…I agree with San…the design are cute but the colours are too dark and the expression of the characters are quite horrible…well I’ll make some change when I’ll stitch one of them!!!

Now I have some little progress to show:

The first one is on Curious cat by MS…I stitched the boot sole, some green of the boot and a piece of white flower…

The second one is a new start…it’s my Jeremiah Junction Birdhouse on Vale’s cloth of RR Nostro, this is my last square for this RR.

Veron!c@ has completed the Archie on my cloth, she is very fast and very kind, I’m itching to frame it and put it on my bathroom!! THank you to all my RR partner!!!
