I feel like i haven't stitch for a long time, actually about 4-5 weeks when hubby was home. He went back to sea, to Scotland a few days ago and be back after 5-6 weeks.
This pincushion was stitched sometime last March and now finally arrived to the new owner so i can show a pic. It is a freebie from "Gazette94".
Joined a LK SAL which we are going to stitched one every month, this was for the month of April. Managed to stitched it in 3 days, not really on time as i had done the last stitches today. I don't know yet how to finish it of, thought into another flatfold but it is quite big.
Was Queen's Day yesterday! Viewed most of the happenings on TV, i mean where the Royalties were, it was in Weert-southern part of Holland.
There were lots of activities in every village here but i wasn't in the mood to join all the crowd, just too busy...been only here in our village but wasn't much, mainly for small children.
In the evening i had to join the rest to the 'bonfire' which was outside our village as Chris really wanted to go, can't leave him alone out there.
A 'Meierblis' is a bonfire, is lit on April 30 on the island. Incidentally, this fire has nothing to do with the Queen's Day that celebrated on the same date, the 'meierblissen' are infact part of a much older tradition. Meierblissen are great fires of waste and wood waste, these fires are lit at the beginning of the night . Some roast their potatoes in this fire. Also, become more popular use to blacken the faces with the ashes. According to folklore experts meierblis is a remnant of a Germanicpractice of firing the spirits of winter to dissipate. (source..
