First, i'd like to show these ornaments which one is left here for me and the other two were sent out. I love how they turned out. These were actually stitched up a few months ago and was able to complete them lately. The flat ornament still on the way to the new owner...

The only exchange i signed in this Christmas and here is what i received from my partner. Love the sea shells design stitched unto the towel and look at all the cute goodies enclosed plus the stitched santa x'mas card-lovely finished! Thank you so much Wendy!!
Last weekend, we had 'Ouwe Sunderklaas'. This tradition is celebrated here on Texel every year on December 12. The children go out on the street in the afternoon, the adults at night, all dressed up and with masks to expose certain matters that have taken place on the island in a humorous way. For this, signs with text are used and voices are disguised to prevent recognition. Every villages have their own acts as it pertains ussually to what happened in that area. We stayed or Chris and i stayed here in our village while Grace went to a couple of other villages as she wants to see her friends for their acts. Hubby is away, in ITALY for his work.
These were some pictures i've taken... Chris played with a couple of his friends and won second place of group category.
These were the adults!
After this so-called 'speulen' (playing) the party is continued to the small hours in the pubs--the adults! The small kids ussually till around 10pm.
Progress is being made of the ongoing renovations....
Hubby's 8 weeks off was over, he left thursday last week, so he won't be able to see the upcoming progress. The kitchen was put back yesterday and tomorrow the workmen will start on the floor tiles and expected to be done by saturday.
Thank you all for stopping by and all the kind comments. I have't visited blogs lately, i am sorry...just that been quite hectisch lately. I hope everyone's having a goo week!!
