I'm trying to show you the progress I made with "World Collection" since last weekend but my camera died. Everytime I try to put the lenses it gives me an error message....what a blast! I am now using the cell phone. I'll have to save a lot of money to buy another one by the middle of the year..unfortunately, things here in Brazil are way too expensive 'case the government taxes are too damn high. :(
Instead of crying rivers for this terrible loss, I'll show you my egyptian girl.
Isn't she cute? I think that they will all look amazing together at the end of the project! I'm planning to stitch one girl a week.
Today I sewed two bathroom towels for donation!
I really hate to stitch on towels but this time I had the idea of stitching on white aida and sew, so I didn't have to worry with the back :D clever girl! ;)
I had a hard time on fiding aida here in my city..as a matter of fact I am having a hard time on trying to find almost everything I need for crafting in here..even the white towels I wanted.
The craft stores here are closing, I don't know why but I can tell you that the downtown area, where most part of the popular stores are located (how do you call it in english?) are being taken by the chinese! Lots of popular stores with those 1,99 things from China.
And so I found the aida I wanted in this little tiny old store..
They are almost getting closed. It used to be a huge place but they sold part of the house to be used as deposit..now they use only a little room of the house. I took this picture from the internet, there you can see the whole store and the two little doors they are using now.
It is sad..The downtown area is an historical place with lots of gorgeous buildings. These two pictures show the same street..back in 1900's and today..a real crap. You can see the same buildings in the pictures.
I'll try to write more about it next time and show you some more pictures. I really love talking about historical places and buildings :D
Have a blessed week!
