I had a great time in Montreal. I did manage to go to the Cross Stitch store that I wanted to, called La Cigale Brodeuse. It's found in a basement of an older looking building. Not much to look at from the outside. Inside it was one room, with most things found around the walls, with a sort of island in the middle that held fabric, beads and a few baskets of patterns. I wasn't sure if she took debit or not because I didn't see a cash register. I only had about 60 bucks on me. My friend said he had some cash on him and I could pay him back but I felt weird doing that. The owner only spoke french so I had my friend translate a few things for us. I asked if she took debit and she did, so I went a little nuts. :)
I bought this pattern and all the things to go with it. Fabric, beads, floss, and kreinik #4 braid
I had a few days on my trip where I could stitch. Due to social anxiety I didn't leave the hotel by myself and my guy was working so I stayed in. I had my laptop and my stitching and food, so I was good.
Figure I'll show a few pictures I got from the Redpath Museum. It was one of the places I HAD to go to, along with the Cross Stitch store, of course. I have an obsession with all things Egypt and it's always been a dream of mine to go to Egypt, but alas, they have much turmoil going on there now. So I read a lot of books and dream about seeing such wonders in person. Well I got to see some in person and let me tell you it was hard not to cry from happiness. I am weird, I know. Anyway here are a few of the pictures I took
I have a few more projects lined up. I bought Gardenia Spring Garden Pixie. And of course, everything to go along with it. I also ordered all the DMC and fabric needed to do another Wind Waker pattern and the last Eeveelution, Sylveon. Finding the time to do everything while still spending time with my guy was proving to be a challenge so I solved it by buying him a capture card. Now he can stream games for me to watch (and stitch!). I am a very smart cookie. :)
I have a finish for this year! This project I only work on at work, when the client doesn't mind and I have the time. Usually during...
