pictures from yesterday

It was sunny yesterday so i took my camera with me. Here's some pictures i've taken: So many lambs are outside when the weather's good.





And aren't this beautiful!!! White and purple crocusses. A pity it will not stay that long.



As for stitching, i had started another small project and half way of it i ran out of DMC 498. I want to ask to my readers here in Holland as there was one selling DMC which is half the price of what i pay here on the island which is 1.30 euro for one skein. I've heard about it last year but can't remember anymore.
Instead of working on my recent other spring projects i've found one of my old WIP and had done some stitching on this one. It was a long time ago since i had worked on this one.



Thanks so much for visiting my blog especially to those who take the time to leave a comment. I do appreciate them so much.

Spring is in the air: the sky is blue, the grass is growing...
I've always loved sheep, they are so cute :) And gorgous flowers!
Quaker row looks really good. I can't wait to see it finished.

Lovely pics Mylene - cute lambs & those crocus are glorious! Good to see Quaker Row again - will enjoy watching it develop. :0)

Mylene -

I love those pictures, they remind me of Spring in England with all the sheep. If you need some DMC send me a list, I will be happy to get some for you. I can buy it here for 3 skeins for one dollar. Just e-mail me at texdelch@sbcglobal.net

Have a great day.

Looks like spring has sprung there. I'm a city girl.. no lambs to see in person. Looks like a prettty cool sight from my perspective.

It's fun to pick up those oldies and put some time into them, isn't it?

The cheapest DMC I could found is by www.borduurbrink.nl.
De price is € 1,20.

Maybe your need some more of it, so the shipping costs are low.

Above 50 skeins the price is € 1,10.

I surely enjoy the wether yesterday. I sat down in my garden, just out of the wind. I hope that the weekend will better than today.

Spring is popping up over there. Those photo's are fabulous. The crocus are so very pretty. I'm afraid with our weather it might be a little while before they show :(

I have never seen lambs up close. I probably should not but I have always wanted to hug one! Are they as soft and gentle as they look?

Julie said...

I love crocus flowers, they always bring a smile to my face, thank you for posting a pic.

I was thinking about lambs yesterday, when the sun was out. As soon as Arden's fit to go out again, I plan to go admire the spring lambs, too. :D

Hi Mylene
I enjoyed your pictures from Texel. Your crocus pictures look just like mine! I suppose we are not that far away from each other really.
I love your red stitching project. It's beautiful.
Best Wishes
Lindsay

Your Quaker Row WIPs looks lovely.

Mylene, I read about DMC threads on the stitcherssite. They say that you can buy cheap DMC at www.marktplaats.nl It seems that the seller is to be trusted and fast. He sells DMC threads from USA. Search on de marktplaats: dmc ijsselstein.
I pay 1,10 euro at www.www.inx-tenzo.nl and here 1.30 euro

Lambs and crocus' Spring really has sprung!

Brigitte said...

Oh, I love crocus, they are one of the first sins of spring. None of them here yet but when it stays as warm as today they will appear soon.
Quaker Row looks so lovely!
