Hardanger & away with friends for a long weekend!

First of all, thank you all so much for stopping by and all the nice comments. I do appreciate them all.

DH is home so haven't been much online lately and no stitching done too.
Only these afternoon i was thinking what to take during the long drive tomorrow and then went to look over my hidden hardanger projects but they are all quite big and i just want a smaller design so i just so
I started these two small pieces early this evening. I have these fabrics and threads for years now or since i started hardanger more than ten years ago but haven't done much lately with it. I came across a couple of projects i can't remember i've started it, really a shame. Hope to sort it out soon though.




The yearly outing with friends is scheduled this weekend, it was ussually around October or November but the one who should organise last year wasn't able to make it at those months so he rather move it to March this year. And now it is this coming weekend and all the way to the southern part of Holland, in ZEELAND. No kids, so our children are going to stay at MIL's place.

We know a couple of activities we are going to do like on friday evening after dinner we are going to 'indoor karting' and saturday to the beach for 'blokart sailing'. Both i've never done before so honestly i am not really looking forward to this.
Two couples couldn't make it so there's only 5 couples and one without a partner who will joined us for the drive. So i said to hubby i am not going to drive as we had planned earlier.

This picture was taken on the ferry going to Newcastle the year 2005.

Hope you're all having a great week and wishing you all a wonderful weekend ahead.

Hope your adventures turn out to be more fun than you expect. Hardanger alone would be enough of an adventure for me!

I hope you have a great weekend. Even though you haven't tried these two activities, you might be surprised at how much you do enjoy yourself.

Lovely hardanger projects. I will have to give hardanger a go one day when I feel brave enough. Cutting into the fabric after I have stitched makes me feel rather ill.

I love the Hardanger you have started. The pink and white one I'm actually currently finsihing myself. I started that doily about 4 or 5 years ago. I'll have to post my own pictures when I'm done with it.

I hope you'll enjoy both, your trip and your hardanger stitching.

Have a lovely weekend - I'm sure you'll enjoy yourself even though it's something you've not tried before - a big adventure. The hardanger is looking good . I've done a couple of pieces using overdied thread and they look quite pretty.

Oooh you are going to Zeeland, this is much closer to my place. We live about ten minutes driving from the Netherlands border which is Zeeland.

Your hardanger looks great, I have never done this before.

I love your hardanger piece. I have no experience with it myself, but have always had an interest. I'm going to love watching your piece progress and maybe it'll get me off the fence to try it! :)

I hope you have a great time with your get together!
