Olenka's stitches design
The July block of Sylvia is done! A pretty quick stitch while watching the serie "Bones" last night after a long day drive at the mainland.
One of the new built platform supply vessels has arrived from India and the captain of the vessel had invited hubby to go and have a look, hubby hesitated at first as it's too far away from us but his curiosity wins so we went yesterday. This is the first of the four series that are built in India, another on the way and the last two, they are still working on it. Afterwards, he said it's worth the long drive which took us the whole day.
As you can see my eyes closed. I cannot count how many taken pictures of me that my eyes closed. The flash wasn't even used in this one!! Oh well, any tips on how can i stop my eyes being closed on photos??
Last sunday, we were able to go to the beach. It was bright and sunny but it was a bit windy. A cousin of Kees with her family joined us. The boys went in for a swim, on the picture below you can see hubby and his cousin's husband swimming. The water temperature is about 16 degrees celcius. Way tooo cold for me, although i did thought of going in too but because of the wind which was getting stronger i really find it toooo cold!
Right at this moment is the World Cup semifinals between Netherlands-Uruguay. It was just 1-1 so everyone's tense for the next round.
Thank you all for visiting and for taking the time to leave me all the kind comments. The missing stitch is the red bird's beak, I think only Carol had noticed it. MIL came home end of last week and recovering well. While our renovation issues....we've asked another two contractors on their opinions and hope to hear more from them in a couple of weeks.
