One of those weeks...

Last week was not a good week at all. So on Friday, I decided to come home early and just stitch. No housework, no phone calls, no cooking....nothing but stitching.....yay, how to make the week better in one easy move!

So while driving home, I'm thinking about what to stitch.....yes, a crappy week deserves  a cup of tea and a new start :) Ohhhh....and I have a new set of q-snaps to use too......the week may not be so bad after all! A quick trip to the library to pick up a DVD to watch while stitching....perfect! 

Except......the kettle's on the blink, the q-snaps (cheaper craft store brand) clamps are so tight that they won't come off......and to top it all....the DVD is French with English sub-titles.....arghhhhh! How on earth can you stitch and read subtitles? Yup, definitely that kind of week.

Anyhoo.......this is what I started...


Lizzie Kate's 'Housework never killed anyone' ....seemed appropriate since I wasn't going to do any housework :)



This is how it looks so far using the recommended DMC threads. A great design that isn't complicated and doesn't require too much concentration to stitch......great if only the movie had been in English!

Hope you're having a better week than I am!

Until next time....happy stitching!

Oh man I hope it gets better! Sometimes you can change the language of a movie if you go into the settings on the dvd or player (if you watch on the computer). Great progress though!

Oh what an awful week! If I were you I would lock myself in the house and stitch until the world has righted itself again!

Oh no! Sounds like you have had a rough time! If it makes you feel better, you are not alone. I had car trouble which will be £££s to fix and had to put one of my bunnies to sleep. No problem with my kettle luckily!

Well, I would have been ok with that movie for sure :) Which one was it?
I have that little chart too from LK, it is really teasing me in my big box of stash! :) Lovely start.
Hope this weeks goes better for you.

We all have weeks where so many little things go wrong! Now yours is out of the way the next few weeks will hopefully run smoothly. Love your new piece. I'm definitely a big fan of the phrase! :)
