I must say weather temps already lowered enough to guarantee decent sleep at night, and easy life while indoors.. thank goodness! 😀
Madam and I are having a great time, as we both enjoy having tea breaks and stitching while watching the Olympic games.. (Lana is particularly fond of tea, just like Madame, as you can see)
I also introduced Muriel to the art of making it through labyrinths, as that’s what we’re going to do next weekend.. GET LOST! 😀
we also read all those ICS Halloween issues, where I saw a lot of interesting projects and finishings.. and on the stitching front, there are some progress on SMC: Patches of Life.. I’m doing my best to get the only goal I might achieve from this year’s Stitching Olympics (I set a few but enormous goals, considered I’m working full time!! :D)
I’ll do my best with this, but honestly, I see it pretty hard.. I want to strike you with some proper progress pictures, you know.. 😉 so nothing, this time.. oh well, off to some more make-up-to-you-stitchers pictures.. 😀
so here it is! complete with two liners (this one you see is the brand new one, that was still sealed in its bag :D), the old one is about to take a trip in the washing machine, and I am about to fill this up with WIPs and tools and zip bags and every other thing it can hold.. (you can tell I love this basket, can you?)
I’ll make or buy different liners though, as these look nice.. but a lil too frivolous for me 😀
thank you Edgar for showing the way you carry around the house your WIPs, as you can see I found it extremely inspiring! 😀
on the SAL front, Manu sent us the third and last part of her Waiting for Christmas SAL, another really lovely Christmas tree.. I already have a few ideas swirling around my nutty brain.. and then another Christmas ornament will go straight into the “WIPs to finish finish” list 😀

that’s pretty much it for today!
thank you all for following the tail every day,
take care and enjoy the best of summer..
the gentle breeze, fresh fruits and veggies,
and many daylight stitching hours!!
that’s what my weekend will be about! 😀
see you around,
