rain rain go away...

I should be going out for a walk but not in the rain, it's predicted though that it is rainy the coming days. It has been busy the last days i had missed my walks. Oh well, i can catch up on my stitching instead.

Chris picked up the winner for my March giveaway...congrats to Sandra /Mollycaff!!! Please send me your address info then i can send it right away.

Live your Dreams
designed by: Gail Bussi
featured at cross Stitch Crazy magazine, Feb.2009
stitched on 14ct aida and DMC threads

Finished off this one but i don't know yet how to complete it off, might be into a pillow.

I've had a good catch up with our friend last thursday but instead of coming back home i drove to the harbour where DH's staying as they came in for supplies and be staying for the night. We had kind of expected it but not really sure, because sometimes they'll leave middle of the night to sea. So before leaving the island i had already arranged for the children where they are staying so i've just called late in the afternoon that i won't be home for the night.

Been a busy weekend, Chris to football for the most part last saturday. It was indoor and they had played 4 games, where they win two and lost the other two.

After the game had to rushed home for lunch and then off to SIL's birthday. Can't stay that long there too as the children wants to go and watch the playbackshow here in the village. They didn't joined but some of their friends did.

Took a few pictures of some of the show but i think i was too far from the stage, it really comes out dark.

Thank you all for stopping by and all the lovely comments and entering the giveaway.
Hope you all are having a good week.
