Must be something quite simple, but I just cant figure it out: how can I check out my follower's blog?
Mmmm... I tried and tried and ended up following myself! Lol. Anyone out there, plz, teach me! Everytime I click on the follower icon, it gets me to nowhere. I wanted to see the blogs of everybody who think I'm interesting enough to follow...
Now, wishing you all the best for 2010! Thank you all, girls, who taught me so much. Thanks for the laughs and friendships. Hope I can be more active here then I was by 2009.
Sending big hugs to everybody! *Ü*

So I believe in ppl helping ppl.
You may think, living in a world like this, I probably need to check my pink glasses, but... LOL. Just now I found this project here: Karmawish, Help to get helped. Simple as that. and thought about featuring it here. Why dont you go take a quick look? Maybe you can help somebody, and, with luck, have a little hand on something too.
Hugs to you all!

Here is the bday gift I sent my sister. I went there by June and left it hidden at my mom's. Her bday was last Thursday (Sept.17th). It's a set of tea towels. Each week day is represented on them. Domingo (Sunday), Sábado (Saturday), Sexta (Friday), Quinta (Thursday), Quarta (Wednesday), Terça(Thuesday) e Segunda (Monday).

This is my very 1st piece. My teacher's pattern. Of course it must be to my mother! Hahaha...
I hand cross stitched the upper side of the little pocket with her initial (her name is Elza) to add some personal touch.
I took the design from "Tout Une Vie A Border", by Sohpie Delaborde and Sylvie Castellano. I completely changed the colors.
I had already finished it days ago, but took the pic only today.
So... Is it too bad for a 1st project?

Anyway, I wanted to share with you some great news! Two of my PIF gifts had reached their new homes! Yaaay! =D
Here's what I made for Jinger. Hope there's space for some blue birdies at her kitchen... =)
This pattern I got from Nukkay. Here you can get the design. I thought it was such a pretty design I could't hold myself from stitching it on a tea towel for Jinger.
Here's what I made for Viv, at the UK. Tried to make it as greenish and as Irish as I could! LOL. =D
Also I got Gaby's gift, by the time I was at Rio with my family, meeting Flávia, my baby-niece (ok... I know I have to update you on this too... Shame on me!), but have no pic yet. Sorry for that girl! I'm already using that lovely biscornu! =)

Then I started another one and when it was just 15% to finish it, I realised I have miscounted the whole thing and it wasn`t well centered! Grrrrr... Going to frog it all out and start again! Would like to kick myself in the head, right now! =/
After that I was so pissed I decided to start something else. This time I picked some REALLY fast project. Finished that in just a few hours.
It's a gift for a very dear Portuguese friend of mine: a small towel. Well, not for her, it's for her baby! =) I'm late on sending it to her, but couldn't manage things to make it sooner. It will be a complete surprise!
Right now I`m counting days to fly to my sis and mom's. =D Going to be there in 1 week!

So happy over here! =D I was planning to have it delivered before she was on vacations at the Netherlands, but couldn't manage it. Then I thought it would be nice to send it to Joke and ask her to hand deliver it to Marne, when all girls would meet at Simone´s, but that would be quite risky. The pack could be late and miss the secret receiver.
Following Joke´s suggestion I patiently (well... not that much! Lol) waited for Marne´s to get back home and sent her surprise.
As I got inspired and quite pleased with the final result, I just got ahead and finished my mom´s bday gift. Her name is Elza and I'm overjoyed I am ahead on this for 2009´s.

This is what´s keeping me busy lately. Well... this and finishing our apt.´s remodeling. =P
I'm stitching this design to be turned out as a pillow for Flávia, my niece. That girl is going to have a large list of cross stitched gifts from this auntie here! =D
So far it looks good to me. Sometimes it´s annoying because of all the colors changing, but it´s coming along so nice!
Off to my needles...
sexta-feira, 27 de fevereiro de 2009
Flávia is supposed to born by the end of May, and auntie Janaina had stitched her this piece here. Soon I will be mailing it to my sis and hope to make her smile.
