"A Stitcher's Prayer"


Thanks to all for the input over my last post regarding the Little House Needleworks project. I thought at first to backstitch it but i haven't seen any LHN projects that has backstitching on it except on doors and windows. So I decided to frogged it and had stitched white instead. I like it better this way and happy to say my first bigger project that i have completed this year as most where ornament size!!
Sorry, the picture isn't good, i had taken it in a hurry just now and thought to post here before going in as i don't know how busy it will be the next coming days.

Many thanks for all the nice comments over Chris. He's all smiles last night when i came home from work, ussually they are asleep when i got home from work but he has Chess club every monday evening so he goes in a bit later than normal. With his reading, he has achieve the level 8 and now on to level 9. He's so happy as he's reached the highest too, on that level only 2 boys and 3 girls.

Ohhhhh yes, our daughter is entering the puberty stage! Atleast, she's really doing great at school as we've just received a note with the results of the national exams they had lately and her percentage is above 90. I find it so difficult to expalin how the school system here as it's very diffirent compare to what we have where i was brought up which was nearly like the one in the U.S. Her latest(midterm) grades were quite excellent too, we will know more specifically at the end of the school term this coming June! OH well, i can say just lots and lots of patience at this stage.....

love it Mylene!!! It looks great!!! Congrats on a larger finish!!! Wonderful news about the kids grades. :>)
Our youngest played chess in upper elem./middle school. He loved it & was quite good at it. Unfortunately, when he got to high school, they never got a chess club started & he lost interest. He still plays, but not like he did.

Another lovely finish Mylene - good call with changing the thread to white, it stands out much better.
Your children are a real credit to you & it's obvious you take a lot of time with them. Wish all parents were the same!

Wonderful finish Mylene. Well done to your children. Puberty is hard on all the family not just the kids (i have 2 kids, son 23 and daughter 18)

What wonderful!It really looks great.
I see that I have a lot of catching up to do on the blogs. Since recently I'm working full time instead of 15 hours a week plus we have our house on sale so I have to keep it very tidy and clean all the time. I hope to get used to all of this so I can get back to my hobbies also.
have a lovely weekend.

Stitching prayer is really lovely Mylene and worth the frogging as I think the white apron works so much better. Enjoy your well deserved happy dance
