A new, or rather old project

Has it really been three weeks since my last post? I can't believe it. And I don't even have much stitching progress to show.
Well, a lot of things have been going on. A few weekends ago I went with the Mr. and his band to St. Petersburg in Russia. The guys where playing a gig there. I have never been in St. Petersburg, so I went along to join them. They gave me all kind of fancy titles like Tour Manager, Producer, Make Up Artist...It was a lot of fun and we made some new friends over there.
I have also started working in my new job. For the next six month I will be working at a traditional upholstery remaking antique furniture. It has been a while since I have worked with these old techniques. It is quite exhausting and I feel dying tired after a days work but also satisfied, because I love this work so much.

Due to so much happening here right now, I haven't been stitching as much as I wanted to. I am still working on my Petit Sampler and I am working already on the third part of it. Beside that I have started a new project, or should I rather say an old one.
My aunt started a table cloth about five years ago, but got problems with her eye side and never managed to finish it. She asked me if I would be willing to finish the stitching and after all my aunt has been doing for me, of course I said yes. As you can see in the picture it is a rather big tablecloth but the design is simple and nicely to stitch while drinking tea and watching a movie.
I will be stitching this design a total of eight times. I am hoping to finish the first one tonight after I am coming home from my day job. I will keep you updated on my progress.

Sounds like you are staying busy! Good luck with the new job. I love the tablecloth and it's really neat that you'll one day have something she partially stitched, too. :)

Daniella, Nice chatting with you this morning. Sorry we didn't have more time. Looks like you'll be staying busy with either work or stitching :)

It's a lovely design, but I'm sure by the eight time you'll be tired of it!! I wish you all the best though, and I hope you get used to working so hard, Daniela. I'm glad to hear you enjoyed St. Petersburg. I really want that chart for St. P by Thea Gouverneur.
