Love grows into a flatfold

Love grows flatfold
Oakhaven designs
28ct white evenweave
DMC threads

Finished the stitching the other day and prepared the materials for finishing into a flatfold yesterday afternoon while waiting for the conference.
I've just finished it off though i am not that happy with the ribbon i had used but when i went to the craft shop this afternoon they don't have any other choices in black, not much in red either so...this is it!

Love the fabric though which i've received from Wanda last year.

Sunny and warm, a good coincidence that the outside swimming pool opened it's door today! I had to wait in line to get the subscription for Chris though and now Grace wanted one too. When i had ordered one a couple of weeks ago she said she doesn't need it as we are going away for a month in July but that is a long way yet and the swimming pool is open until half way os September.

Chris, the darker one playing with his niece and a couple of their classmates.

Chris spotted his sister with her friends and joined in the group.
So, here we've spent the whole afternoon. After dinner, Grace had helped me mowed the backyard as she wants to go to town afterwards. The shops are opened longer(until 9pm) every vriday. While she went to the cosmetic shop i went for groceries. Now i don't need to get up very early tomorrow for that.

Thank you so much for the comments over my last post. From the news this evening, there are 7 dead already including the man who drove the car into the crowd. Still 8 people are in hospital.

Heel veel sterkte aan alle familieleden die iemand hebben verloren!

Your flatfold is finished so neatly! I'm just too messy when it comes to glue to even attempt one. But it really makes a nice finish.

Have a nice weekend!

Hi Mylene
Your flatfold looks great.
I hope the swimming pool is heated. It is way too cold over here to be swimming outside at the moment.
Have a great weekend.
Happy Stitching
