Dear readers,

 

Chers lecteurs,

 

There's an activity I only have time for during summer.

 

Il y a une activité que je ne pratique presque que l'été.

 

Sunbathing? Scuba diving? Surfing?

 

You're so very wrong! Cross-stitching!

 

Bain de soleil? Plongée sous-marine? Surf?

 

Vous n'y êtes pas du tout! Je brode.

 

The vet said I had to keep a close eye on my cat to see if he had any more fit. So I took the embroidery out every day while he was in my parents' garden.

 

I did a couple project for other people and then I took the fancy to do something for my kitchen... because one day I will have a proper kicthen (a girl can dream!).

 

I bought that plain dish towel.

A butterfly seemed to like it as it stayed there while I took the picture!

Here's what the towel looks like after a 30-something hour work. Not in a row, of course, I did eat and sleep a little!

Voici à quoi ressemble maintenant le torchon de cuisine (après de nombreuses heures de travail). Il a un petit air de noël alsacien, non?

It looks a bit Christmasy and alsacian, I think.

I'm sorry I had no time to iron it before taking the pictures... I just remembered to snap the pictures before packing everything to go back home (still a mess but a liveable kind of mess - if by "live" I mean camping in the wild nature is easier !).

Sorry I  had no time to write a specific post for your party as I usually do... Renovation is just eating my time!

Je vois que le moral remonte puisqu'il y a un article sur le blog ! Et que tu as enfin un peu de temps pour toi. Bravo, ce torchon est magnifique. Je n'oserai même pas m'essuyer les mains avec.
