Sept. x'mas Sal ornament & other upd.!

((click on pictures to enlarge))
A pic. of the ornaments i did each month. I haven't packed these to put away but will take with me when we go to the summer house next week.

Here's my september ornament. Work lots on it last friday when i wasn't feeling well to help hubby with some heavy works.
Santa's and Snowmen ornament
Prairie Schooler design
32ct Zweigart Belfast Naturel linen
DMC threads




Saturday, we've been to a birthday celebrations on one of our friends at the mainland. Sort of get-together as we haven't seen each other for a while. See that adorable little boy, sure had hold him for quite a while! Just upon they arrived the mother gave it to me at once and i've been dancing with him a lot!! We live quite far to just drop in for a cuddle.


Here's what we've done...partly, the barn. Remove the roof tiles and then see all the debris we've thrown on the ground from the roof?! The plan is to turned the barn into a bedroom. For now, it will remain open.....

...hubby is leaving tomorrow to Spain for his work. Hopefully be back half way of october. I will be moving with the kids next week and NO computer at the summer house. Connection can be fix when hubby returns nearly end of october. Atleast, i can come home and check my mails once a while here.

We just got home from visiting a bestfriend of hubby..thought better stop by as he will turned 50 early next month and hubby isn'nt home that day as turning "50" is a big celebration here ...we got there, his wife crying as they've just heard a sad news her brother died. Her brother lives in Germany and it is very far to just pack and go. Only 66 years old. Had found lung cancer earlier this year but didn't expected the end so quick. So we didn't stayed long. She's so unhappy as she's been operated with her knee a few months ago (may 2010) and it is not yet good. Had to go for the fourth time to the hospital for more check-ups later this week.

Thanks so much to all of you for the kind comments and i sure appreciate your visits. I hope everyone's having a wonderful week!
