This week end, I joined a wonderful group of stitchers (thank you joysze!) for the International Hermit and Stitch Weekend (if you haven't heard about it, you can read more at joysze's place, here). Wonderful idea, isn't it? Try to do nothing but stitching, yeah!
I thought it was a wonderful idea as my hubby was going to a meeting Saturday evening. I was overwhelmed with joy, which in fact wasn't really nice for him. Poor thing, he must have thought that I don't care that much for him. But you stitchers know it has nothing to do with your feelings. Stitching for me is something as important as breathing,laughing, eating, etc.
So I was not pushing him out, but waiting for my stitching hour to come. But ta da, as soon as he was on the road, I kept receiving worried phone calls about my welfare, from friends and family, as it was the first time I was alone here in Sri lanka. And this on Sunday too. these people were so nice, I couldn't really tell them : leave me alone, let me stitch. So I told them I was perfectly OK before going back to stitch. Most of them wouldn't have understood my stitching obsession ;)
Any way, I got some stitching done.
Got back to brilliant butterfly (it was in danger of becoming an UFO), and was glad I did. I stitched two more butterflies, yeah!
Coucou tout le monde. Ce week end je me suis joint a un groupe de brodeuses-ermites. L objectif etait de rester cloitrer chez soi a broder. Ca n a pas ete facile. Au debut, ca tombait bien car Sid devait se rendre a une conference. Je sautillais tellement de joie qu il a du se dire elle est trop contente de se debarasser de moi. Au final, sa famille et ses amis ont passe leur temps a m appeler pour voir si j allais bien, ce qui est en soi adorable. Ok ca me faisait raler! J ai quand meme reussi a pas mal broder, youpi! je suis particulierement contente de mon nouveau projet, il avance bien. vous me manquez beaucoup!
A bientot les petits loups
