x'mas card's and a new project...

Compeleted a couple of x'mas cards lately. I haven't done much with regards to x'mas cards as i had intended, oh well i still have a few months to go...

I started a new project from a magazine from the U.S. Eversince i saw this one i do like to stitch it for me so glad i am able to start it now as i had got this one a while back.

No stitching for me this weekend as we are leaving the island tomorrow to stay with friends on the mainland and be back sunday evening.

Hope everyone will have a wonderful weekend and thanks so much everyone for dropping by and all the nice comments. Really appreciate them all.

Brittercup designs

I've just heard that one of the exchanges i was in, in one of the yahoo group has received the exchange piece i made. Since her theme was black cats/stitchy humor i Stitched her one of the known Britty Kitties of Brittercups designs. I completed it into a pinkeep and happy to hear Marilyn likes it.

I had manage to stitch the starting last sunday but don't have a picture yet, hopefully later this week.

some pictures

Since i haven't done much stitching lately, no pictures to share in that area except until a couple of the exchanges that were sent earlier this month were receive.
It's just too busy here, thought when the children's back to school last monday that it will be a bit quiet but still not much difference. Only Chris who went back to or started school but Grace will start on tuesday as she goes to "middelbare school"-like high school, but here's tottally different as they are classifies to different levels depends on their achievements at the "basis school"-elementary school.
This was taken last friday. It was nice weather and Grace friends were here and chris too so we decided a last barbecue.

These was taken yesterday afternoon when the three went at the dyke here acroos the road to our house for a swim. I think the water's temperature was 18 degrees. at first Jolein find it too cold but she gives in after a while. It just that the stones were quite rough, Helene had a few cuts on her feet.

A couple of weeks ago, friends came for the weekend and it was quite good weather so we went to the beach but still the water's too cold for me. This year i haven't been to the water yet for a swim and i am afraid will not be anymore!
Hopefully, my next post will have some stitchy pictures. Kees just left to go diving and will be back late this afternoon and the children went out to play, i might do some stitching, that is... if i get away or off this computer!

Off for a long weekend!!!

Oh well i don't even know where to start anymore, it seems so long since last i posted here. It is just too busy here, with the children and their friends in and out of the house or taking/accompanying them somewhere. Also we had a dog to look after since tuesday and they've just picked him out tonight(thursday). Here's a couple of picture of him that i've taken this morning after our early walk at seven. We will surely miss him.

Last week, received these fabrics from Barbara. After she read my message about coloured fabrics, she generously offered some of hers. Thanks so much, Barbara. I did stitched on the blue one already with the joy pattern of Lizzie Kate, but haven't made up to something yet. It will be an ornament for sure.

A couple of cards that was sent earlier and x'mas cards done too.

It wasn't our planned to go away as i can't get a break at work but since i only work monday and tuesday and it was really crazy these week at work, when i got home tuesday evening i said to DH i want to get out at least for the weekend so the following day we looked up for a last minute booking and ended up through Hogenboom Vakantieparken, a bungalow in Gelderland
Will be off tomorrow morning(vriday) and be back monday morning, hopefully on time for my work at 12PM.

Hope everyone have a good weekend. Sorry, haven't had much time to visit everyone's blog the last days.
