It doesn’t mean anything really πŸ™‚ just something small and cute to pass off time when there is nothing good on TV. Meanwhile my dales is getting prettier and prettier despite not so clear shot. Just a few more holes to fill in plus the waves of clouds and its gonna be on the way to the frame shop. I love this, even if I stitch it with a cheaper stuff. Its the very first time I used #cxc from China and I thought I should keep this one and hang it on my wallΒ  to remember how I struggle to thread my needles while doing this. I should stick to the best stuff all the time, I suppose.

Talking about Dales gives me inspiration because in my home country (where I came from) not in Belgium. I live in a place surrounded by dales. Although I have neighbors left and right, our small community is situated in a hole like foot of a valley facing fields of rice and lakes. It is a very peaceful and charming community where people live side by side with each other. The beauty of the nature and the kindness of the people is the main reason why we love to stay there for a couple of months every year. Escaping the coldness of Belgium, (literally speaking) for quite sometime is very much needed. I don’t mean the temperature πŸ™‚ but I neither complain nor show dissapointment because I still believe to feel warmth we have to create the fire ourselves πŸ™‚ Its actually too warm where we are going. Sometime its suffocating and too much, that’s why I am so lucky to be able to escape both when its necessary. I would love to share next time how is it to live in Both worlds. How do we live? what we eat? what keep us busy? and why we like it the way it is. Thus, I am going to set aside my crafty basket from time to time and talk about places soon. I like it if anyone pays me a visit. Welcome

I choose to go on

It’s not the first time that I lost my focus, in fact it is becoming a bad habit lately. Thank God I have a strong faith and hope that everything will go back to normal in due time. For the meantime I am taking things in a slower pace than I used to do before. Work a little, play a little and stop on time. Summer passed by without much ado around us. I’ve done a bit of sewing and scrapping though I wasn’t in a good mood to take photos at that time. My CS work in progress on the other hand is better than the rest of my other habit, being my number one relaxation. I’ve also tested some more threads like Molina from Poland and CXC from China. I concluded that they areΒ not my cup of tea. I rather use original DMC or Anchor in all my next project.

This is my current project The Dales which I am stitching using #cxc. It looks okay, though I am having a hard time dividing the six strand skeins because it is a bit wooly.

This one is almost done, and I have been finishing it with some text from a bible verse. I probably will not post the finished frame when its done because it is supposed to be a surprised gift.

As always, I have cute little one day, one night stitcheries for give aways to my friends.

Voila! I choose to go on and keep this blog which I initially thought I should stop. All I needed right now is re-inventing my old me. My BFF thinks I’m having a mid life crisis and its gonna be over when I am past my golden years. Its gonna be a long time to wait so I thought I must waste my time accordingly. πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚
