NEW CHRISTMAS STOCKING

The reason why I haven't posted lately is that I have had a lot to think about. After my "not friendly power adventure", next day, actually evening, I was on my way to the local mini dollhouse club's meeting, first in this year. The project for that workshop was a Scottish bagpiper. I was very excited. Would you like to hear what happened that evening? The tire blew up. I was driving on freeway doing 75 miles per an hour, almost racked, missed the meeting, but alive. Is somebody trying to tell me something? And if you think I didn't stitch at all - you are wrong. Mostly I worked on my Chinese rug, but here is my new project:

Wow, Natalia, I am glad you are ok, did you get hurt and is the car ok?
Hope that is the end of your adventures for 2011, sounds like you had enough for this year already.

Oh my... you were very lucky - I hope you didn't hurt yourself?! But at least you're stitching, that's a good sign.

Greetings

Thank goodness you survived that experience! Very scary! Perhaps the message is....slow down! That's what my husband would tell me! LOL! I have to tell you .....your work is amazing. I'm sure I've told you that before. And I have to ask you...how many hours does it take you to create one of these stockings? You work so quickly! I'm just completely amazed! Sincerely, Carolyn

Elga, nice to hear from you! Yes, things happen. I wish I would got some kind of signs that those things were going to happen...

Thank you, girls, for your support. Drive save, take care of yourself. It can happen with anybody and anywhere even if you put new winter tires 2 months ago.
Carolyn, it usually takes around 3-4 hours to complete a stocking. Depends on the count of silk gauze, design and number of colors, and of course during the day I stitch faster because of the daylight. Thank you.

I am so glad you posted about your near miss! Another wake up call to all of us. Sometimes, when we think we can afford to be just a wee bit careless, we actually can't at all! Not saying you are but I am rather, sometimes.

I am stitching a lot this past 2 days. Maybe, just maybe I will complete the carpet soon. I am amazed that you can be doing a Chinese rug and still finish a sock! A very beautiful one too!
