"My Little Heart SAL" & Lk stamp...

A couple of small finishes to show, Sylvia's SAL came out early last night so i was able to print it out and took with me at the other house and manage to finish at once. It's a pretty quick one and so cute!!



Also completed the September LK block earlier this week.



And see these goodies... thread, chart and aren't these fabrics gorgeous?!? I love them all!! Thanks so much, Anita.


I had a bit of stressful week, what with my father being so sickly at home so been calling almost everyday since last weekend. Yesterday, i was about to call again when i saw my mother came online so was able to chat through yahoo. One of my brother had installed a computer at my parents place lately and tried to teach Mom how to use it. With the help of our nieces and nephews they were able to chat with my sister in Canada too and was able to see her kids(through webcam). As of yesterday, father begins to feel better and started to eat something.

Aside from that, i've been dealing with the contractor, architect and then relay it all to hubby to finalize the papers for the renovations. This morning, i had signed in the papers and the Architect took it to the city hall. Luckily, my signature is enough otherwise it will have to wait till hubby gets home. Actually, this is the second time as the first one that was already approved by the city hall for the renovations(actually re-building a new house) was too expensive so we had to change the plans and just do some renovations but still need permit for it.

Time is up...better head off to the other house again (my third time today), Kids will be home soon for dinner.

As always, i really appreciate your visits on my blog and THANKS so much for taking the time to leave me a comment.
HAPPY WEEKEND TO AL!!!

Jackie said...

I'm so sorry to hear your father is not feeling well. I hope he recovers quickly. I know it's hard on you being so far away. Have you heard of Skype? Maybe you could Skype with your mom and your dad when he's well enough. It's not like being there in person, but at least you could see him for yourself.

Mylene, I hope your father will get better very soon! It is hard when you are far away and can't be with those you love, but internet is really a godsend for us with all its ways to keep in touch...

The SAL of Sylvia is so cute, and although I am not doing it I am looking forward to the new picture every month :)

And the LK is also great!

Hope everything gets arranged with the papers of the house and you can have a bit of rest, too.

Have a nice weekend,
