A winning!

Last whole week I have been bugged by a headache and a cold, and last friday I decided to stay home from work. And to cheer me up the postman delivered me a lovely chart I won on the "October breast cancer awareness giveaway" at Barbara's.

I still have the headache but in spite of that I've had a busy weekend, stitching like crazy on a Crazy Exchange, and yes, I finished it and no, no pictures yet, for obvious reasons. And I made some adjustments on my bourse. On pictures of another stitcher on the bourse class I saw she had the darts turned inside, while mine were outside. I liked the way she did this much more, so I decided to torn the darts out, and do them all over. And it looks much better. I also changed the cord to close the bourse. At first I used some velvet ribbons, and it didn't open and close too smooth. Now I used some silkish ribbon, and it opens and closes much smoother. Can you see the difference?

I also have been stitching on a Christmas ornie, for the HoE board. It looks like I'm going to finish it next weekend, and that gives me some time to stitch on some other things.

Tomorrow my DH and I leave for a short trip to Germany. DS and youngest DD stay at home, so it's just me and my beloved husband. We are going to enjoy a stay at Hotel Mönter-Meyer.
