Work in Progress / Mon en cours / Woran ich arbeite

I have neglected this poor blog too long, my only excuse is too much work .... so here is a picture of what I am currently working on. It is the "courtepointe aux oiseaux" from the pattern Symboles du Boutis. It took me more than 12 hours to trace the design, and I am not counting how long it will take to stitch, I am just going to enjoy it !

Ich habe leider mein Blog in letzter Zeit vollkommen vernachlaessigt, meine einzige Ausrede ist, dass ich zuviel Arbeit hatte. Also, hier ein Photo von meinem jetzigen Projekt, das Courtepointe aux Oiseaux aus der Musterkollektion Symboles du Boutis. Zum Abpausen brauchte ich mehr als 12 Stunden, aber ich habe mir vorgenommen, die Stickzeit nicht zu zaehlen, da ich einfach Freude daran haben will.

And just for fun, a couple of pictures of our Thanksgiving table, in various stages of completion - I did not get a picture of everything finished because I was in the kitchen ! My daughter is in the picture saying Do you HAVE to take a picture .......

Was für eine Arbeit ! Aber es macht sicher auch Spaß, und muß ja nicht gleich fertig werden :-)
