Finally a finish! Chalk it up!! Designed by Lucie Heaton and was featured at The World of Cross Stitching magazine, issued February 2021. My very first stitching on black. I can say it was quite challenging working on black and think i am not going to use this kind of colour though it looks great if i say so myself...this finish piece!

A couple of weeks ago i noticed so many new buds and spike on my orchids, didn't realise i had quite of them and also see almost all are pink colours. These are on the living room and i have a few more in the kitchen. So happy they are really doing great as honestly i forgot to tend to them once so busy at work and came home quite late and if it's dark i won't go and look at them. Hope to buy new ones in colour yellow or white soon. Just notice so many new buds and spike on my orchids
Last week been to the mainland and along the way finally saw a Tulip fields with the "Queen of the night" tulip, thought at first was black but more on very dark purple. I haven't came across yet a real black colour Tulip. These are the last pictures for these spring flowers as most all flower heads were cut off.
Work on and off with this project and i am undecided about which colour to use for the hair. Thinking of black or DMC #3371.
Love preparing foodies when kids come join us for meals. Not so often nowadays due to their studies and work.

The 1st of May, we drove around here on the island in search of Tulip fields and there were quite some blooming. So beautiful to just stand out there and admire the view. Can't pick a favorite as i love them all.

First of, many thanks for stopping by and leaving me a comment, i do really appreciate it. Haven't taken the time to search to a better lay out to my liking, did try a few but still not satisfied and i am actually illiterate when it comes to working on my laptop.
The other weekend came my daughter with her boyfriend for dinner. Quite abrupt when she texted at midday that they are coming to the island and fine if they come to dinner...sure, always welcome that is if i am off from work. Well, had a few hours then for thinking what to prepare, going for groceries and then cooking. Glad i made it in time..a few asian dishes.
A day after came my son with his girlfriend for dinner, thus cooking mood continous. I love spoiling them when i can and try to prepare what they like everytime they come which is not often anymore as they both living on the mainland due to their studies. The horse card i stitched for my son's girlfriend for her b-day. She works at giving riding lessons here on the island.
Yesterday, we went to the mainland to visit a family, and on the way we've seen quite many flower fields..Lots of Daffodils as well as hyacinths, here and ther tulips fields and lots are still greenish, still a while before they will bloom. And since temps goes down coming days i think it will slow them to bloom.
