IHSW March and Dilara's Birthday :)

Sorry for belated IHSW post, I've been occupied with some activities at my daughter's school:
at Super Science Day (Science Week)

Sport Day

celebrating Dilara's 5th birthday!

Currently my husband is travelling for his work in Turkey and Tajikistan, he is away for 11 days, so I am all over the places. The amount of work and demand from 5yo and 2.5yo are exhausting to fulfill all by myself, I dont even have time to miss him (unless the longing for having an adult to share the responsibility :p)

The good news is since my husband is not in town during the weekend, I decided to stay at home throughout the weekend and do a lot of stitching for IHSW :) The kids were playing together and made a lot of mess everywhere and I let them did that :)

My work during IHSW:

Before IHSW

After IHSW. I was planning to finish the whole top but got bored with the sky!

made this one for a friend in Indonesia

finished the beading for the Runaway - Gorjuss
Perfect birthday present from mummy!

Themealicious Figural February wrap up and New apartment!

Hello from our new residence in Dheir Ghbar!
Another belated post from me but I am so happy to announce that it is not caused by lame internet connection anymore! Our internet is so fast because now we live at the roof top! I have been so occupied with the house moving and all that stuff I haven't touched any cross stitch for about 10 days!

Some views from our apartment:

I really really love this house, it is new, actually small but the way the designed it make it looks so spacious. They made it in western style (so no waste of space that you usually findin Arabic style), high ceiling and glass all around :) The neighbour, landlady and even the watchman are super nice. There is a playground nearby, (soon to be) my son kindergarten is within walking distance, near main street but not the busy noisy one, easy to find taxi (I don't drive so this is important!), my husband now has to drive to office (usually he walks) but he doesn't have to pass the traffic jam area, and my daughter travel time to school is cut up to 30 mins! Still can't believe our luck because the rent is quite cheap for the area.

Now.. my cross stitch :) I made 'I love teaching' up to this point:

Not too bad I guess considering I stitched it for about 4 days only. If only I didn't have to clean and pack I would have finished it :)

March Madness
Work on something different every day...it's madness...of the funnest possible kind

Now I am torn between stitching all the designs that I have made promise to make for people back home (will go to Indonesia in July) or stitching some pieces for my new apartment ;)
