… on my baby giraffe piece. I actually had the thought of not stitching the blue background but it just doesn’t look right without it. So that was what I’ve been doing all weekend, stitching blues. It was a nice project for when I am watching TV, but just as I thought I might have accomplished a lot, it seemed like I haven’t even got half of it done. There is so much more to fill……
So, in order to change the scene a little bit, I decided to switch to finishing Schoolgirl Lessons, since I finally picked up the threads I needed last week. I was so happy and just cruising along on it, until I discovered I was totally off!!!! Darn!! Not again!!!! I was determined to finish this so I ripped out the mistakes and started again. Luckily there weren’t much left to do on it, so here is my finished Schoolgirl Lessons~
Pattern: Little House Needleworks “Schoolgirl Lessons”

Despite all the troubles it gave me, I still like this very much~ Reading, writing and stitching are the things I wish I could do all day~~ These are the things that makes me happy~~ By the way, just finished reading Tracy Chevalier’s “The Lady and the Unicorn”. Love it!!! Couldn’t put it down until I’ve finished it. Please excuse the wrinkles. I’ve yet to iron it out and frame it, but really wanted to show it to you first~
So what are your simple pleasures in life?
