Updates on My blogs

Wow, it's ben a long while since I last update this blog. Life is getting a little bit busy. Vivienne had her 1 month celebration sometime ago now. It was a great family gathering and celebration.

So much has happened in stitching wise. I went to a stitching show in Sydney. I found the stand from Dragonfly Dream then. there on displays were several of Martina Weber's Chatelaine designs. I was quite taken back from them. I have seen some of them on the net before and weren't quite interested on them. But seeing them in live really changed my view. I bought my first Chatelaine (watergarden) then and started stitching it. It's marvelous stitching with silk. Since then I found out more about her online classes + mysteries etc. Now I have joined and started Alpine Season. There is Japanese Garden starting next month. I bought her charity New Orleans Help chart. I'm waiting for my kit + fabric for Midi Mystery 1. Next year, I want to join Illuminated Medical Sampler, Midi Mystery 2, ? Mystery X and Martina just announce a new Japanese Box which I had to have. Needless to say I have been bitten by the Chatelaine Bug for sure. Most of my wips have been ignored for a while now.

I did manage to finish TT for Vivienne. This is stunning with so many metallics in it. I need to frame it with my new framing kit soon. My problem is I don't have a big enough table to use my kit. My problem for getting the larger kit. LOL

I also have a few things to report as well. Caroline, the owner of Yahoo IntrincateXS had decided not to continue running the group. I offer to help and was made a co-owners of the group. It's exciting to run a large yahoo group. This was the first XS internet group which I joined about 1 year ago. I needed some lessons, Caroline + Mayte and Francois, the other co-owners were great in helping me setting into my new job. Here is the link to IntricateXS

I have also created a new community for male cross stitcher. This was after I was invited to join a similar community, however I left soon after as it was not a forum for me. So a few of us boys decided that we need a new place to hang out and chat about our hobby. We did not meant to discriminate against the ladies but just prefer a place of our self. Ladies are welcome to view and read some of the forums but only registered members can post and view other forums. I called it Y-XS, the Y is for indicating the Y chromosome of the male population. You can find the link in here. At the moment we only have a very small community but hopefully it will grow as time past.

Anyway I better stop writing and get back to some stitching.
