August always begins with the big annual Cross Stitch Exhibition at the same mall, and this year I was able to visit. I skipped it last year, but this time I was there and I loved it! Unfortunately, I forgot to take my camera with me, but several others have documented the wonderful projects. Mánya is one of them, and she was kind enough to give me permission to link her blog entry for the pictures. Please CLICK HERE if you want to see all the awesomeness!
Mom: Where are you?
Me: I'm at the cross stitch exhibition...
Mom: (interrupting) Do not buy anything! You know you can't afford it, wait till you have a job, have regular income, you are already working on a bunch of projects, plus some you haven't even start yet! You don't need another project.
Me: I know, I wasn't gonna buy anything, there is only one kit I liked...
Mom: Do not buy it, you can always get it later!
Me: I know, it's just that it has this cute ballerina girl on it...
Mom: Huh? A little girl?
Me: Yes, in a ballerina outfit.
Me: yes, a pink tutu.
Me: No, she sits in front of the mirror, looking cute and all.
Mom: Okay, answer this: what is her hair color?
Me: Errm, uhh, aaa.... blonde?
Mom: Then you go back there right now and BUY IT, do you understand me? You buy that kit right now and start stitching on it right away! Put all the other projects aside, the bunny, the birds, they can be done later, but I want you to stitch that girl as soon as possible. Hear what I said? Go back there and buy it right now!
Me: Yes mom!
Errmmm... does anyone know where I can find some help in converting brunette hair colour to blonde? It would be kinda important. I need to stitch a blonde ballerina if I want to live.
