The season's SAL..."Summer"

First of all, a huge thank you to each and everyone of you for all the lovely comments on our anniversary. I really appreciate them all!!

Actually, these both pieces of the SAL was stitched a long time or just after i received my copy from Carole last May but i've waited till i've completed the flatfold one which i've finally made this morning. It's been on my mind lately as i know Carole will send the next season this week. Just received it this afternoon, Thanks so much Carole!! The flatfold finish will be flying off to a friend later this week, do hope she'll like it.

No new finishes or stitching to share but i am working on it though not as fast as i've wanted. Our daughter celebrate her 16th birthday with her friends here this coming friday evening and she's expecting about 25 young girls and boys. So quite busy with preparations of what they needed, tomorrow after work for a couple of tarts and the next day for some small snacks and then me and hubby will be off for the evening or atleast partly and be back around 11pm. Hopefully, they'll take care of the place or themselves not to get tooooo drunk. We had bought quite some heavy drinks/alcohol which they've asked for and we will be calling a few parents tonight if their children are allowed for the said alcohol.

I hope everyone's having a good week!!

Greetings from Texel!!!!

Hello!!!! It's been a while since my last post... i really apologize for not visiting blogs and being behind answering mails. I've been very, very busy working so i haven't touch a needle for the last months. Last night, was able to pick up a small design and thought to look up a few pics i've completed last June to share.

This is the design i started last night, printed a while back and forgot to write down who's freebie is this? Anyone know??

The living room getting filled in...the dresser for the tv, but mainly for the front living room with the arm chairs and tables.

Since working long hours, i haven't had much time for the garden, also we haven't had a good summer this year. Very windy, wet...on and off so my plants are quite a mess. Took a couple of pics this afternoon in between periods of rain.

Do hope everyone's having a good week. Things are doing well here, my two off days over and back to work for the coming days....

An old project "Summer Meadow" & get-away pics..
