Half Ways

Well, we are more than half way through the year now, I'm also reaching a couple of half ways marks with my stitching.

First is wedding blessing. This is my longest wip, from 2004. It's now more than half way. The groom is done apart from the backstitching on the bouquet which I'm going to do with the bride as it is connected. Hopefully it won't be another 3 years before it's done. LOL

Next is Chatelaine Annivesary castle. Ok, this is only about halfway of part 1, not the whole project. I got the fabric from Stitches and Spices on the needlework show in darling Harbour which we attended last month. This is a small project, so hopefully I can keep up with it. Still waiting for my kits from ECC.

Finally mystery X, this is part of Part 6. It has been a lot of fun, and the backstitching or blackwork around the windows were now a joy to do. Finished these over the weekend while in Sydney. The roofs are next, but I will get to that in a while. I need to attend to Hans' RR first.

On another note, Vivenne turned 2 nearly 2 weeks ago. How time flies, she is now running around, making many noises and say 'No' way too often. LOL Soon I think she will start communicating better. We think it will be a bit slow as she is spoken to in 3 different languages, Mandarin from dad, Vietnamese from Mum and English from both at times. Not sure which she is going to learn first, but we would like to keep her multilingual just like her parents. But somehow English will likely to be her main language.

Lovely stitching!!

3 languages? Gosh!! I am planning only 2 Indonesian and Dutch. And let him learn English at school. DH also wants me to teach him Teo Chew, but it will be difficult since it's not so many people speak Teo Chew anymore.
