On Top of the World 2

 
 
I'm back already with a quick update on
Gorjuss, On Top of The World
My little girl has a leg!!! (Well nearly)
Isn't she coming along beautifully?
 
 
During the tour last weekend, we had a bit of spare time
I admit, not a lot of time but enough so that we ended up doing a bit of shopping
I got a new Gorjuss girl, this one is called Ruby!!
The good news is the alarm tag was attached through the packaging & the corner of the instructions
At the check out, the shop assistant couldn't take it off! She apologised many times & offered us a 10% off!!!
I was well pleased with this as the fabric wasn't affected & the wording of the instructions were fine :D
The kind of bad news is that I already have this one.... when I thought I didn't!!
Nevermind, it will be fun to stitch her twice with two different finishes!
I'll have to get creative...
 
Happy Stitching!
Mii x
 
 
~~~ooOoo~~~
 
Allé, une petite mise à jour sur Gorjuss
Ma petite fille a une jambe!!!
J'en ai acheté une autre, Ruby!!
L'emballage est un peu abimé à cause de l'anti vol qui a créé de gros soucis
à l'assistante du magasin car elle a eu beaucoup de mal à le retirer!!
Après mille excuses de sa part, elle nous a offert 10% de réduction!!
Ca c'est pour la bonne nouvelle
La mauvaise nouvelle est que j'ai déjà ce kit!!!
Tant pis, j'aurais l'occasion de la broder deux foix :D
 
A tout à l'heure...

    1. I offered a Gorjuss kit to my little sister for Christmas. I was sure it was that one, so was quite happy to have it back!!! :D Well, I ended up giving her New Heights, the one were the girl is standing on a few books... D'oh!!!
      You're right, I should make a list... I love list, why didn't I think of that? :D
      Have a lovely sunny day! (Based on what my parents recently told me, you have hot & sunny weather!!) xx

  21. Adorable new gal to add to your collection Mii, even though you already had her! That was a great deal and I'm glad the tag didn't damage the kit. They really should be more careful when applying a security feature onto items. Love your progress so far!!

    Hugs

    1. Thanks Anne!
      I think the security tag is unnecessary but then again I'm a good girl!

  28. She is truly Gorjuss. The colours are lovely on her. I've got 3 more Gorjuss girls to stitch as well, Ruby being one of them. But the next one on my list is Puddle of Love. Too adorable and irresistible aren't they??
