..packing..stitching..sorting..stitching..packing....

...spending time on the computer, oh yes i am keeping myself busy! And the weather isn't that good for walking so i did Zumba for about half an hour every evening except tonight as Chris wanted to watch the football game U.K versus Algeria!!

Here's my finishes so far, the june block for the RR-Margaret Sherry designs.



And a PS design for a quilt, will be assembled later this year for one of the yahoo member. This is a pretty quick stitch compare to the block above where lots of backstitching.


Took this picture of the pion rose a few days ago, the flowers are blooming now.

With the strong winds last week some were bend down so i cut a few for inside.

Here's how they look like today!



Boxes are piling up in every room. I still have lots to do and have a week before hubby comes home. He sure expect most are ready to be transfered to the hired container or space when he gets back.



Please take a look at Olenka's blog as she's having a lovely giveaway! She has also some gorgeous designs!!

Thanks for visiting and HAPPY WEEKEND to all!!

What a cute little piggie.

Good luck with the move. I'm sort of new to your blog. Did you say where you are moving to?

Annie said...

Very cute stitching. I'm surprised you're able to find the time for it. But looks like things are progressing nicely. Have fun finishing up all that packing!

I used to stitch Margaret Sherry designs when I did RR's a few years ago, but I have to say I dont miss stitching them, they used to take a long time, and those half stitches would drive me nuts. They are beautiful when finished though, I have the pig holding the roses as a cute hanging pillow finish in my stitching room.
Hugs to you

Alice said...

Mylene, that is such a happy pig you stitched there. You cannot help smiling looking at its expression. Two really nice finishes. My word girl, don't get me started on packing. I had no idea there was so much stuff in our kitchen! The weather sure has been lousy in France as well. No end to all the rain. Good luck with the rest of your packing. Its not easy living out of boxes.

Mylene,

I'm glad I was able to help you out with the pig chart. It turned out so cute.

You are doing a great job with your packing. Keep it up :)

Great finishes! The roses are lovely too. After reading your blog this spring, I know I need more color in my yard. I'm going to get a rosemary bush too.

Good luck with the packing. It always seems like it will last forever.
