Wow, this update is long overdue! I bet you've been dying to hear how my stitching weekend went. Well it went VERY well! There were 8 of us in my little living room, chatting, stitching, and eating! I think my guests did far more stitching than I did, my mojo was... off. I just couldn't get into Celestial Dragon, perhaps it was the complexity of the design and a room full of company? Trying to work on CD came to an end when I dripped some tea on it! The horror! I was pushed by all the ladies to get it in a bath ASAP. So instead I pulled out Art Deco Spirits, which actually was a joy to work on, to the point that I didn't put it down until bedtime Sunday night!

This week has been a whirl-wind for me! On Monday evening a few people from Experiantia Dominicana were here in Canada! There was Robert, the program director, Mioced who was our guide in the D.R., Pedro a school teacher from Esquela De La Salle, and Yammesse a young lawyer. They came up for a week to talk to schools about education for all and the borders that Dominicans and many other come up against : economic borders, social borders, political borders. Monday night we had a pot-luck dinner for the Dominicans which went VERY late! On Tuesday morning they came out to the school to talk to about 200 students, we had a quick lunch with them before they were off to another school in the area. That night we all met up again at a restaurant in the Market for dinner... yet again another VERY late night! Then, it was time to say goodbye as they were heading to Toronto on Wednesday. It was sad to say goodbye again, but on the other hand so nice to see them again!

Up until last night I've had NO time for stitching, but CD has been getting some of my attention! Here it is as of this entry tonight!
