I have a lot of WIP's....and a lot of them are carried over from years before. One big goal is to reduce this pile. But those of you who know me, know that doesn't mean that I won't start new projects :-)

These are (some of) my WIP's in no special order:

01 Findus der Maler - Acufactum
02 Im Reich der Engel - UB
03 Sampler 1852 - Permin
04 Bonjour Sampler - Mariska

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)

Last night it started snowing again and when we woke up this morning everything was covered with clean white snow again. DH could do his workout shoveling the snow ;-)
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...

I have to work between the Holidays from thursday to saturday. But I'm very happy that they asked me how many hours I wanted to be scheduled for the upcoming weeks :-) So I'm down to 24 hours per much more time for housework, cooking and STITCHING :-)))))
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.....
I don't want to post without a picture so here is one of our house with wonderful snow...

Ich freue mich sehr über die Kommentare aus Deutschland! Wir haben uns supergut hier eingelebt und genießen das Leben in den Weiten Kanadas sehr. Ich wünsche euch einen guten Rutsch ins Neue Jahr und bleibt gesund :-)

Merry Christmas

I hope you all are having a Merry Christmas!

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.

My very first WHITE Christmas!

It started snowing by the end of november in Brandon, Manitoba and the snow is lovely. I don't even care the cold, though it is much colder here than it's ever been 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 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.
