look what I got in todays’ mail.. 🙂
called for fabric and threads for the Magic Garden Sampler SSAL I ordered back in July (anyone who wants to stitch this project as slowly as possible, you’re welcome to join Veronica and me! :D)
then I received the last batch from Sabine Rossi‘s creations..
and look what I found for Madame! 😀
I’ll take more pics of the Riviera today, since they’ve been such a hit 😀
I also took a pic of the cake my sis Elena made for Granny, it involved a lot of chocolate, butter and sugar, and trust me.. it’s good, REALLY GOOD!! 😀
on the stitching front, I got a visit from the darn frog sunday evening (so hopefully this is part of last week’s bad stuff), and I had to frog ALL the right border on Patches of Life, due to an horrid miscounting..
now there are a few progress, but I really want to see it fixed before I take another picture.. so much for my hermitting weekend!
actually I had to dump the area (which luckily had no other stitches yet – I never wash hand dyed fibers) with water and iron it, in order to close the holes a bit.. as the frogged section wouldn’t have been covered by other stitches, and of course I could tell what happened from miles away! 😀
and speaking of water, weathermen informed us the Saharan heat wave will be replaced at the end of the week by what they called a “water bomb” ..yes, no joke. they called this a water bomb which is forming right now on the Atlantic ocean, basically a lake-size amount of water which will hit Europe starting friday, hopefully not in just one spot.. (there’s a reason why I call Venice The Sinking City, but I would never want it to happen overnight..!! :D)

thank you all for the nice comments, I promise I’ll take as many pics as possible before the water bomb splashes down us all 😀
welcome new viewers from Colombia!
see you around
