April x'mas ornament SAL & baby card

Let IT Snow ornament
Country Cottage Needleworks
JCS 2008
Zweigart Belfast naturel 32ct.
DMC threads

This was stitched a while back but i wasn't in the mood for finishing as i wasn't sure how to finish it off. Now i do want to complete it before the month ends!

Here are the collections each month since January.

(You can click on all pictures to enlarge if you want)

Where Grace and her friend babysit once a week had their 3rd baby last weekend so i made a quick card which Grace dropped it this afternoon. Her friend is on holiday in Spain at the moment but when she's back early next week i am sure they will go and visit.

It's Queen's day here in Holland tomorrow. Before, we have small parades for the children, Grace had participated a few times when she was small but since last year they didn't organize it anymore. I think it was something about the band, there was not many members to divide for the villages.
But they have some kind of games and other activities for the children in the afternoon so that's where the kids are going and in the evening we have a "Meierblis "(a large fire)' just nearby here. Hope i can take a few pictures to tell more about it next post.

Thank you all for stopping by for a visit and all your lovely comments. I deeply appreciate them all.

Those pinkeeps of yours are a treat to the eyes! Very beautiful Mylene.

Your tulips are awesome, I love them is my favorite flower. A few years back I bought a plant for my mom, she adored it, but sadly she "followed instructions" and removed the bulb when the flower fell. Can you believe someone stole it from the basket the was keeping it at? Has never recovered from that lol
