I've made it...

...finishing my May x'mas ornament SAL. Weather was dark, wet and windy yesterday so it was really a good time to sit and stitch.


He's a flake ornament
LHN design
32ct light green linen
GAST and DMC threads

Here's the last picture of all the ornaments 2010, will be packing them all soon and hope we can display them on the new house this x'mas.

Sylvia was early with her June block so i finished that one too yesterday.

It was sunday and ussually i sleep in but i had to take back Chris at 7:30am to the football field. Sleeping in the tent were cancelled early saturday evening as it was been raining continously and very cold so all the kids had to go home for the night. Still they had fun for both days even if the last day had to be indoor activity beacuase of the bad weather..they all went to the cinema.

Saw a few pictures of Grace while she was working on her computer last night and ask if she can send me a couple and if i can put it on my blog, was ok. I have to ask permission as she doesn't want to see pictures of her here. This was taken just recently with one of her friend.



These were taken during their performance earlier this month for the Liberation Day in town.

I hope everyone is having good start to the week. Thanks so much for visiting and all the kind comments. I really appreciate them all.

ps..
I've added a few pictures of some old issues of Anna magazines on this blog: trade items. I prefer these to send locally as the postage will be very expensive for outside Holland. They are free for anyone who wants to have it except the postage.
