Biscornu exchange, WIP, Sail...

Receive a note from Joan that she received the biscornu yesterday that i made for the exchange on SBEBB. This one is a freebie but can't remember where from. I do really hope Joan likes it. I did enjoyed stitching this with WDW Sky and finishing it with beads around. Well, that is one received from the

three packages i sent the same day exactly a week ago today. Still waiting from Norway and another from the U.S.

I've just received this wonderful exchange from Linda today! Great stitching and finishing Linda. I just LOVE it and all the extra's enclosed, especially as i can't buy these kind of fabrics and colored ring tags over here.

So far, here's my update on Winter SAL.

I haven't done much stitching since my last post last week. I see it's nearly a week already. It's just that before the weekend i had headaches for a few nights so i am not in the mood for stitching. Weekend came, we had Max for company and been to birthday party's too.

DH is away for work for a while now, so these previous evenings i had to picked up the kids at MIL's. It's really different being alone with the kids, as i am used to having him around though his working home but atleast he's home for the children.

Last saturday afternoon we took Max at the dyke for a walk at around 2PM, i didn't expect a lot of people are already around as i know the SAIL PARADE in Den Helder will start at 3pm to 5pm. Max was too curious at the people around and not everyone is happy to have a dog so very near so we decided to take back Max home right away and wait till the parade's over.

You can have a read and see some more pictures here about the Sail, Sail-spektakel in Den Helder (this one in Dutch)
The Tall Ships' Races 2008 (and this one in English)

Thanks so much everyone for stopping by and all the lovely comments about the fob. I really appreciate them all.

Nice stitching and exchange package! Hope you feel better soon. Our weather has been damp here lately and my sinuses have about had it!

The biscornu looks great with the beaded edge. You are really into that I see. And you are very lucky to get such a nice exchange package. I still have the designs from the Helga SAL calling my name. You are making great progress.

Beautiful exchange pieces - both received & given. You're doing great on Helga's SAL. I'm far behind on mine. Loved the pics of the Sail Parade.
