NO internet for a day...& WIP's

We haven't had internet connection for more than a day and i heard some parts of North Holland too. There was a broken cable somewhere in amsterdam mid-afternoon yesterday.

Anyone waiting for a message from me-don't think i am ignoring the messages, i just don't have connection...
...so what have i done instead, stitched...stitched!

Here is my progress on "Peace inside". The left picture is the new update. Thought, i better add where i had stopped before so you can see the progress made. ((you can click on all pictures to enlarge if you want))

Finished 'April' on "My little heart" SAL. This SAL can be seen at Sylvia's blog.
This is a Wedding Sampler i just started for Chris teacher who is getting married next month. I hope to finish it sometime next week, so this is my priority for the moment. It doesn't stitch quick as there were so many colour changes but i love the design. The backstitching were not many but lots and lots of frenchknots!
I am teaching four girls of the class too as they wanted to stitch a small piece for their teacher, they've been here three times now for a couple of hours and they are getting better and better, the first and second meet up were lots of frogging though- i have to do it. They are only 10 years old but they are eager to learn.

Before i end... A Happy Birthday to my wonderful husband! It's his birthday today. He is currently away for work and be home end of this month.

Thank you all so much for your continued visits on my blog and for taking the time to leave me a comment. They mean so much to me! Wishing you all a lovely weekend!

Sorry to hear about the internet, but now that I think on it, I can just imagine what I would get done if I could give up the internet for a day! Lovely stitching, and what a thoughtful gift for the teacher who is getting married, not only the wedding sampler, but getting her students involved in making gifts for her too! Priceless! *Hugs*

MrsB said...

Lovely stitching! I often wonder how much I would get done without the temptation of the internet...

Belated Happy Birthday wishes to your DH Mylene. Peace is growing well, as is the SAL piece, & that's a lovely wedding sampler. :0)
Hope the connection problem is sorted quickly. Though I tend to get a lot more stitching done when the computer can't be used! LOL

Wendy said...

we've had that problem last night, no internet, and even worse - no tv !
so I've been catching up on my reading, I'm quite pleased with myself that I do manige to keep myself busy without internet, lol !

your stitching looks lovely, well done !

Terry said...

All your stitching is looking lovely as always. Sounds like your needles have been smokin' getting the Wedding Sampler done. Good luck! I'm sure she will love it.

Happy Birthday to your DH. Hope that you have a wonderful time planned for when he returns so you can celebrate it together.

Deb said...

Happy Birthday to your husband Mylene!!! I just love your Peace Inside piece. I don't think that I've ever seen that pattern before, but it's wonderful. Your My Little Heart SAL looks wonderful too! And the wedding sampler is gorgeous. I'm sure that Chris' teacher will be thrilled to receive it!!! Good luck with all those French Knots!!

Mylene,
Happy birthday to your husband!
You've been busy! All your WIPs are so lovely.
I like your idea of stitching a gift to the teacher. It's so sweet of you to teach the girls to cross stitch.
