again, I find myself taking another SAL.. how can I put an end to this, I wonder.. perhaps you people should stop planning such attractive projects..? (yep, I’m definitely going to blame someone else for this! :D)
so this time it’s Natalie‘s fault.. subscriptions for the Stitch Me Club 2012 Patches of Life have just opened as this is a summer long project, with four steps sent (hear hear!) by snail mail! 😀
isn’t this lovely? to actually receive an envelope with a part of the chart every month until october?! I find this a nice change.. especially for this time I won’t be the one who has to wait for a chart to arrive from overseas!! 😉
it’s going to be a big sampler (283×223) and it can be stitch on whichever fabric you prefer, called for fibers are a couple of DMC threads and hand-dyed (GAST, GASS, WDW and CC), even though you find DMC conversions for all the threads
instructions can be either in English or French, it’s up to you to choose, and the price is 9.50 euros per month to be payed all in advance as a one time only payment, which will include shipping costs for each envelope sent, which means a total of 39.50 euros/31£ for Europe, 40 euros/49US$ for International subscriptions.. yeah, I know.. I but pricey.. but after all it’s an Atelier Perdu, which means amazing stuff.. check this out! 😀
so here I am.. committing to another big project I’ll desperately try to catch up with.. gee I need to learn to say no to new stitches..
as for Pablita, she’s finally got permission to GO WILD again! 😀
at first she looked a little perplexed.. then she started smelling the grass all around her, zigzagging.. and I just knew what this meant.. EGGS!
she must have been waiting to lay her eggs all this time, the poor lady.. moreover she usually ends up as exhausted as famished.. which isn’t really a nice combo in her present conditions..
I left her alone for a while, when she finished I went to check and she didn’t do anything.. so I’m even more worried now, for she may be unable to.. and this would mean x-rays and a possible intervention..
now she’s resting in her favourite spot, under the rosemary.. this afternoon it’ll be time for medications (she still has to receive her fix every 48 hours, plus daily disinfection therapies) ..fingers crossed..

enjoy the weekend
and thank you for following the tail in so many every day! 🙂
