I couldn't sit down

and stitch the last week. I only accomplished a few stitches on the Red Snowman:


I couldn't keep focused on stitching and had to put it down often. I usually stitch a lot when Derek is on nightshift. I then listen to audio books but I can't do that when he is at home. So yesterday I decided to go and buy some headphones.....
I listened to the last CD of Undomestic Goddess by Sophie Kinsella that was still waiting for me from Dereks last nightshift


and then I started on the 11 CD's of Twilight by Stephenie Meyers.


I couldn't put my stitching down till 1:00 AM in the morning and so I managed to finish The Mountains and a bit more of the border:



So I am listening to more of Twilight and start stitching The Midwest today. I absolutely love the story about Bella and Edward. I don't know why I did not buy headphones earlier. Derek can watch a movie and I can listen to an exciting story and learn English at the same time :)

Your SoSS looks wonderful! And so is the Red Snowman. Glad you found the headphones and can listen to the audio books. Aren't Sophie Kinsella's books great! Light reading (or listening) and funny too.

I've never listened to an audiobook before. Sounds like a great thing to do while stitching!

Oh I like your LHN From Sea, it's looking great and the red snowman as well.

Your Catherine Agnes is absolutely lovely. The frame is also fab!

Beautiful progress on your wips Bine! Both of those books are so good! I got so hooked on Twilight - I listened to them all in just a couple of weeks! They're sooo good! :)

Your progress is looking amazing! I just love this design! My daughter is a Twilight fanatic! I never have time to sit and read, so I have not read the books or seen the movie yet. MY daughter did tell me that the movie is awful but then again she is a reader and not a movie watcher. She loves the books though and from what she has told me, they sound great!

Wonderful stitching. I enjoyed Bella & Edward (Twilight) too -- I read all of them & even viewed the movie. Enjoy the Sophie Kinsella books, too. They made me laugh!
