simple flatfold

This is one of my finishes last January, designed by Helga mandl and now finally finished it into a flatfold a couple of days ago. That's the fabric i used for the backing and do love how it turned out.






It's been pretty busy here lately, yesterday i've been at MIL's place for the day till evening helping out for her 77th birthday. Came home last night with a headache so i went to bed quite early. As i had to get out early this morning dropping Chris to one of his friends who took them to their football match at 10am, while i had to help out at the canteen for the football club from 9am to 1pm.
Chris team had won the match and it's the first time he did manage to hit one goal so he was very proud. Now, i've missed to watch that game.
It was dark and had rained as well so it was quite busy for us at the canteen serving coffee, thee, hot chocolate and other drinks, i was really tired when i got home and had to lie down for an hour before heading to a birthday party this afternoon. Came home at around 7 and went to picked Chris at once. We finally made home around 9pm. i think it will be an early night for me again tonight. Not in the mood for stitching at all!!!

Wish you all a wonderful weekend!!

Hi Mylene,

Just wanted to stop by and thank
you for your kind words regarding
my framing/stitching finishes. I
really appreciate the encouragement
and support.

I love your flatfold finish of
this delightful Spring design.
The backing fabric is a perfect
match to this design and the
beautiful colours that it is
stitched with.

Best wishes and congrats to
your son Chris for scoring a
goal for his team and helping
them to win their match. Way
to go!!

Cheers!
