April block is done!

Thank you all for the input over these Lizzie Kate serie. I thought of finishing it into a bellpull when all the blocks done so i chose the 3 across and 4 rows down.
Just finished the April block last weekend, now can put this aside until after two weeks.


I don't have the buttons needed for each block but hope to hunt for those when all the blocks are done.

I've completed this needleroll and sent it to Anna in Norway end of May. I don't know if she receive it as i haven't heard anything till now. I did sent out a few e-mails but haven't recieve any reply's.

I've stitched it on a smaller count of fabric as you can see the difference with the one i had stitched for myself which is a bit bigger.


These pictures below were more for hubby as he is outside the country exactly a week now and hopefully be home second week of August.
A picture of Chris of last week where he joined "bouwdorp"--soort of summer day camp from monday to friday. Where about 140 children(6-11 years)where they are entertained and do some fun and other activities. Only, the weather wasn't really cooperative as it rained on and off and since this was an outside activity they weren't able to do much outside. Atleast they had some fun and full of stories each day. The day before it ends parents were invited to go and have a look so that is why i was able to get these pictures.







Many thanks for stopping by and all the lovely comments. I hope you all have a good start of the week. We've spent the whole afternoon on the beach and if the weather stays warm we might go there more often.

So cute those montly blocks Mylene. I am still packing but two more sleeps and I am off to England with my cargo. I will not have internet in the next two weeks but will catch up when I get back. You will have to stitch for me as I have done no stitching for over a week and will have time for none in the next two. ; )
