..another flatfold finish & LK stamp!

"Goodwill" flatfold
Little House Needleworks design
32ct linen
Gentle Art Sampler Threads


(pictures can be enlarge)
I haven't stitched much these past two weeks but i had sent out a few pieces before DH came home so atleast i have something to show whenever they reached their destination. Just heard Nita received this one, actually two different flatfold finished sent to Nita but one had a mistake so i have to change that first. I am so sorry Nita. Happy to hear you like the design i've chosen.

This June block took me nearly two weeks to finish as i only work on it a few minutes in the evening while watching the news. I love how these LK stamps turning out.



Finally the renovation is scheduled to start half way of october. We would like it now but the contractor doesn't have time for it yet. So we have to rearrange everything like the place we had hired to stay and probably dh is going off to sea soon instead of waiting till october. It means we have to try and empty the house so not to be in haste when he gets back and it will be ready for the contractor to start.
In between packing, we've been visiting friends and attending parties too so instead of stitching we are out socializing. I am sorry, i am way behind on reading blogs and groups. Do try to catch up bit by bit but whew...you are all too quick in updating your blogs. Everytime i thought i've catch up, it appears several new ones!

Anyway, thank you all so much for visiting my blog and for taking the time to leave me a comment. I really really appreciate them all.
I hope you are all having a good week!

It sounds like you're going to have a busy few weeks preparing for the renovation. You'll be glad when it's all done! Are you going to share before and after pics?

Carol said...

You do such beautiful work, Mylene! Love the flatfold and each little block of the LK piece is so darling...

I know what you mean about keeping up with blog reading/commenting. It is really tough, isn't it! I am down to posting only 2 or 3 times a month as I've just been too busy this summer!

Great news that the renovation will finally begin in October--that will be here before you know it :)
