...i just can't seem to find my stitching mojo!

But found this pinkeep on my photo's from last december which i haven't shared it yet.

Did tried to pick up a project and unfortunately don't have the needed-just one -thread to continue, it is the LHN "Home of a Needleworker" so i put it back into the box. Pick up one of the PS ornament designs but after 15 minutes...kind of bored and put it away again. Ussually, i can stitch for 2-3 hours in the evening.
I think too much going on here, hubby being away for six weeks, the mortgage we've been working for the renovation haven't yet finalize which is now more than six months and renovations were completed. The bank kept on sending new papers to follow up instead of giving it the very first time!! We were really, really disappointed with all these regarding this bank! Plus, my youngest who is 11 has been in a couple of problems at school and outside school activities. Honestly, just not in the mood for anything, even reading which i do love too before going to bed. I am on facebook sometimes when i get the chance to chat with my family back home and in other countries. Since we got back here, we only have one computer instead of four so we have to share these days and the kids are on Spring break now for a week.

Thanks everyone for stopping by and hope you are all having a good weekend.

flatfold, pinkeeps & other pics.

The last couple of gifties of 2010! The flatfold arrived after 5 weeks to the U.S.A while the pinkeep a couple of weeks to Norway. So both were received way over christmas. ((pics can be enlarge))

A few asked about the LHN piece i stitched on my previous post so i thought to share a pic of the proverb series. I just don't know when they were published. Think a couple of years now or is it more...??? I love these designs and have a couple, hope to buy the others one day.

...a few pics during my visit home.

A huge Thank you... all who stopped by and all the well wishes for my father. Called home yesterday and glad to hear a good news from Mom that father is doing better and working around the house which suppose to be NOT but he is one who cannot SIT all day! Here is a pic. of my parents i took just before i left. See how old he looks while he is only 66 years old. The little girl is the daugter of my youngest brother. Really hope father is on to recovery. I´ve taken lots of pics but not yet sorted out, will share some later. ((all pics can be enlarge))

The first weekend when i got back here has been off to a friend´s son birthday at the mainland. Back home with the last ferry in the evening...

...and the next day off to another friend´s birthday celebration but without the kids.
One of our friends turned 50..Abraham! The next in line is hubby this coming April!

From the birthday party, we went to another island-Terschelling for hubby as he has to follow a course. It is smaller than Texel and since it is winter..NO activities going on. I slept, read and did a bit of stitching.

Ive started this design during my flight to Hongkong and didn't touch it during my flight back. I had a terrible headache that time i slept for nearly the whole flight-10hours straight and had only waited for the left 2 hours before arriving in Amsterdam. I finished this design but haven't taken a pic of it yet, also completed a couple of small designs for gifts.

Back home thursday evening and then friday been busy preparing for next day's belated birthday celebration for me & our son Chris. Was able to prepared 4 meat dishes plus 3 different tart and then more the next morning before visitors came. Lots of snacks, too busy to think of taking pictures. These were snapshots of hubby whenever he get the chance as he was too busy serving drinks. friends had helped a lot too. Lots came as they were curious about the house and so glad we have enough space now as it is not a weather to go out! Too windy and COLD!!

I hope everyone had a good start of the week.
