social Saturday, hermit Sunday!


O plano para o fim-de-semana era ficar sossegadinha em casa, bordar e mais nada :p Já dá para perceber que saiu furado, certo? ehehhehe Estava toda contente com a chegada do IHSW porque ía dar um bom arranque na minha Gorjuss mas... as coisas foram surgindo e comecei a acumular tudo para Sábado, assim sempre sobrava o Domingo livre ;)

A manhã de Sábado começou com uma ida a algumas lojas no centro da cidade, precisava comprar alguns materiais, claro que a loja de lavores também estava no roteiro ;) Quando voltei a entrar em casa já era hora de almoço! Logo a seguir tinha uma workshop de ponto cruz, mais um tema que inseri nas minhas Workshops pois recebi contactos de pessoas que estavam interessadas :) De inicio não pensei que haveria tanta procura na área do bordado, ainda bem, é o meu tema preferido! :D heheheh A aula terminava às 18h mas conversa puxa conversa e eram quase 19h, só tive tempo de arrumar a mesa e saímos para jantar. O dia terminou às 23h, já não havia energia para bordar nadinha!! Acabei a noite a jogar Smurfs Village :p

Para equilibrar o Sábado cheio segui-se um domingo calminho :) Comecei a manhã a bordar, ao almoço fiz um leite creme - que saiu o melhor leite creme da história dos leite cremes!!! hahahahaha :D - mais bordado durante a tarde, para o jantar pizza e jogo do Euro Portugal x Holanda (lamento Annette!!) com mais um bocadinho de bordado à noite :)



Quinta Gorjuss que faço e curiosamente comecei esta de maneira diferente, sempre começo pela carinha mas não sei porquê aqui comecei pelo ursinho! Depois do ursinho fiz as meias com todas aquelas trocas de cor, preferi fazer logo essa parte do que deixar para o fim. Agora estou no vestidinho verde :)
Devo continuar com os braços, pernas, rosto e finalizar com o cabelo.

Aqui já podem ver o efeito do tecido Marble da DMC, acho que este efeito marmorizado fica mesmo perfeito para o céu :D

Viram como foi o meu fim-de-semana, a segunda também começou com uma agenda cheia! Hoje espero responder a todos os vossos emails e ainda ter um tempinho para espreitar a blogosfera ;) Uma excelente terça para vocês!!! :D

My plan for the weekend was to stay at home stitching and doing nothing else more :p That plan was almost a total fail as you are about to see ehehhehe I was so happy with IHSW coming because it was my opportunity to finally start my Gorjuss girl and make a good progress on her but... things were coming along and I was scheduling everything for Saturday, this way I could have my whole Sunday free ;)

Saturday morning began with a visit to a few stores, I needed to buy some supplies, of course my LNS was also in the way ;) When I got back home it was time for lunch! Immediately after I had one cross stitch Workshop, one more theme on my Workshops because I received many contacts from people who were interested :) At first I didn't think there would be so many people looking to learn cross stitch, that's great, after all is my favorite craft! :D heheheh Class was supposed to end at 6 p.m. but we kept talking and it was almost 7, I only had time to clean the table, put everything in place and we went out to dinner. The day ended at 11 p.m, there was no energy to stitch, I just played a little Smurfs Village :p

To balance a busy Saturday, a quiet Sunday came next :) I started my day stitching in the morning, during lunch I made créme brulée - which came out the best créme brulée in the history of créme brulées! hahahahaha :D - more stitching in the afternoon, for dinner pizza and soccer game Portugal x Holland (sorry Annette!!) with a little more stitching at night :)

It's my fifth Gorjuss girl and curiously I started this one differently, I always start with the face but this time I started with the little bear! Then I stitched the socks, with all those color changes, didn't want to leave that for last. Now I'm making her green dress :) I'll probably continue with the arms, legs, face and finish with her hair. DMC Marble fabric looks just perfect for the sky :D

You know how my weekend went, Monday also started with a full schedule! Today I hope to reply all your emails and take a stroll through the blogosphere ;) Have an excellent Tuesday!!! :D

So happy to hear that there have been interest for learning to x-stitch!!!

Oh look at those striped legs! Your weekend sounds like mine - busy busy & not a lot of stitching & no blogging or emails. ;0)

I'm so excited that you had so many people sign up for your cross stitch workshop, Nia--I'm sure your enthusiasm for the craft is infectious :) Do you take along some of your finished pieces for show and tell?

Looking forward to seeing your Gorjuss girl blossom :)

Ann said...

I'm curious to see more progress on your Gorjuss girl. Also happy to read that you're "infecting" lots of other people with the cross stitch virus.
Have a nice day!

The fabric you are using for the Gorjuss girl is perfect and the little bear you start is so cute!
and what about the creme brulè?? I love it!!!!
happy stitching and cooking!

Veronica said...

Sounds like you've had a busy, busy Saturday. I'm happy for you though, that you have so many students wanting to learn cross stitch :D

Your new Gorjuss Girl is progressing beautifully. I tend to head straight for the areas with the most colour changes in a design too before anywhere else. Prefer to get that out of the way first :) That fabric you've picked is gorgeous.

Hugs,
Veronica.
