We Now Break For a Little Stitching!

I know I haven't been telling you much about what else has been going on since I got home. Its taking me a lot of time to share my DR trip with you so I'm taking a day or two between entries.

This past week I was off work for March Break, it was a very busy week but I did manage to get some stitching in, and the Knowledge and Needles spring retreat helped too!


Celestial Dragon as of March 14th

Celestial Dragon as of March 22nd
I'm looking forward to the weekend, the Billy Talent concert is Friday night and Saturday is my Birthday! I managed to get my hands on an extra pair of tickets for the concert but so far I'm having a hard time finding some folks to join us!

Oh my word! First, thanks for stopping by my blog and the nice comment. Second...Applause for a cross stitching TKD black belt. ME TOO!

Do you have your black belt through ITF, like me, or another group?

I hope to learn more about your stitching and TKD experiences.

Hello Dani.
Thank you for stopping by my blog. I certainly appreciate your comment. Thank you also for sharing your experience in Dominica Republic and all I can say is if you have ever gone to any of the impovished countries, you will not come back the same way you left. The piece you are working looks involved too.
Thanks again for sharing.
Please stop by my blog again and accept The Beautiful Blogger Award.
Hugs,
Jackie

Tama said...

Aussie Stitcher said...

Celestial Dragon is looking great. I hope that you have a wonderful birthday Dani, enjoy the concert.
Your Dominican photos are amazing, the disparities of existence just don't seem fair. I am so grateful of where I live and of what I have got.

Judith said...

Looking forward to seeing it grow.

Suzanne said...

This looks like it's going to be a lovely design.
