Manhattan Wonderland and Snowflakes

Lately I haven't been sitting much at the pc. Simply because I can't really concentrate at the moment. Everytime I do sit at the pc and want to read a bit, I get side tracked and feel restless. Life is a bit hectic here with garden work and also worrying  about my father in law who is suffering quite some pain lately. His well being has at the moment absolute priority for us and we try to help him and my mother in law as much as we can to ease their lifes. Hopefully things will turn again to the better soon.The doctors are quite hopeful at the moment :)  Stitching however soothes the soul and helps me to stop thinking and worrying and calms me down. 
Anyway, that might explain why I haven't visited much blogs lately and wasn't very active in the yahoo groups and message boards I'm member off.


Last week I stitched quite a bit on Manhattan Wonderland and finished page 3.



While I normally finish a piece before starting a new one, I broke this rule this time and started a new travel project. Christmas is coming up after all isn't it? There for I started  Little Needlehouse Design called "Snowflakes". 
 

And lastly an update on Alla Turca
