After finishing the Hello Neighbor RR I allow myself to start the first new project in 2008. :-)))
I'm planning to visit Sheena's Gallery in Winnipeg. The Needlecrafters Travel Companion says it is Manitobas biggest Crossstitch Shop....probably that will cause a new start again....(hopefully just kidding)

We had such a quiet and nice sunday today. It was just wonderful. Playing with Lisa, stitching, dainties shopping and having a delicious dinner....
Everyday after stitching on the Hello Neighbor RR I put a few stitches into my Garden Pleasures WIP :-)
Going back stitching Hello Neighbor RR again..... See you tomorrow...

It is way to much working everyday till 6pm and even some saturdays with little Lisa going to bed at 7pm. I just wanted a job for a few hours to learn better english and because it was too boring being at home alone the whole week.....
I'm still stitching on Hello Neighbor RR during my lunch break and in the evening.....

A few days ago we went tobogganing at the Brandon Golf Course...dear hubby fell off the sled during a furious ride down the hill and destroyed our camera. :-( So we will have to buy a new one within the next few days....
I needed a break from stitching the Hello Neighbor RR and so I put the last stitches in the Prairie Schooler Autumn Leaves. I started this one back in June after DH left for Canada and Lisa and I were alone in Germany.

And the weather is so much better than in Germany...I'm here for 4 1/2 months now and it rained only 2 or 3 times....in Germany it didn't rain 2 or 3 times during that time ;-)
The view from our livingroom a few days ago.....and we got even a bit more snow yesterday *yay*
Since mid of september or beginning of october I'm working in a trecking shop in Brandon and right before Christmas it is so busy and I have to work so much that I haven't got a lot time for stitching left. In the evenings when Lisa is in bed I'm often so tired that I start sleeping on the sofa in the living room....that's something I usually doesn't like at all.

....but tonight I'm going back stitching on Carissa's RR. I love how this one is turning out :-)
@ Von, Joanne, Coral and Carol: Thank you very much for your kind words. They are so much appreciated. Life in Canada is very nice right now. But a lot of things are very different from Germany. One thing is the people are much friendlier and I love that!!!!
@ Barbara, Birgit und Moune: vielen Dank für euere lieben Worte. Birgit, lass dich doch mal wieder im hello blicken oder bist du immer noch in der Sommerpause? Moune, ich hoffe, es geht dir wieder besser!!! Du bist schon etwas vom Pech verfolgt. Ich denke an dich und wünsche dir gute Besserung.

A little update on my Hello Neighbor! RR Now it looks a bit more like the cozy cabin that it will become :-)
It is becoming reality more and more each day. We are going to move to Manitoba, Canada. Sometimes I still can't believe it. DH has booked his flight for 19th of June. Lisa and I are going to follow later.
It was my big dream since ever to live in North America...and now that it is coming true I feel sometimes very scared about this giant stride. Leaving everything behind and start a complete new live abroad...
Uhh, I will have to change my blog name ;-)

I started stitching on the Hello Neighbor RR. First mailing date will be the 1st of June.

Of course I stucked to my commitment with the Game Board SAL group and stitched two squares (and a few additional letters). Now, there's only some more letters, a part of the inner border and that square where to add the initials.
The other thing is Toccata 2.
I received the needed Kreiniks for this oneplus some additional stash from needleworkplus.
Now I'm just waiting for the Gloriana Thread to arrive. I'm in need of a ONS that carries all thread brands.....
The specialty stitches are so much fun.

I found out that not only Carol is stitching this one.
Carissa is stitching it as well but both are doing better progress :-)
Wooohooo girls, go on like this!!!! :-))))

Today I had to bring Lisa to the doctor...It started yesterday in the late afternoon. Her eyes filled with tears and after some time the tears changed to a yellow sticky liquid. And in the night she had a lingering cough. When I switched on the lights I realized she coughed gunk and it was all over her pajama and her bedclothes....poor little thing.

I put a few stitches in And a Forest Grew but I made a mistake in reading the colorkey and used only two green shades instead of three for the tree constituted of three squares on the left. I'm not going to correct this error :-)
And I stitched two squares on DT's Sampler Game Board:

I did not stitch as much as Carol did, she's such a speedy stitcher :-)
Unfortunately ;-) I have to put it aside and take out my DT Sampler Gameboard to stitch my 2 weekly squares as agreed with my SAL friends
By the way, did you see the new Drawn Thread Designs? They are a must have!

2006 wasn't a very good year for me and my family and I hope so much 2007 will turn out to be a better one!
I made some progress on Winter Wonderland and Hearts and Flowers:
And as fears when I saw Carol started And a Forest Grew by Rosewood Manor I gave in to the temptation and started it as well. I do like all these wonderful trees and animals so much....
