Hardanger piece!

Hardanger is quite easy in between breaks, compare to cross stitch with all the different colours and the signs although depends on design picked up to work with in cross stitching. Been a while since i worked on hardanger, i was quite nervous doing the cutting, so glad it is a small piece. Been from one activity to another mainly for the kids, for school and out of school. Thought it will be a bit relaxing month but since hubby is away at sea again i am alone to be....everywhere for the kids! Aside from my own work, how about house chores...ohhh and the garden, totally neglected. Bought some flowers to be planted a couple of weeks ago and still they aren't planted. shame...shame!!
Thank you all so much for your continued visits on my blog especially to those who takes the time to leave me a comment. I truly appreciate them all.

Flatfold, WIP, RAK & march update...

This cute Easter design is a freebie from Vinniey.
Saw it from someone's blog last March and glad i was able to
stitched it up just in time for Easter.

Worked a little bit on the sampler....

Received this lovely gift from Cath early in March. Thanks so much, Cath. It was a such a nice suprise!
Sure miss participating in exchanges but being too busy here
i couldn't promise anything.

March was a very busy month, glad hubby was home then.
Activities for the kids to go too and also for friends
& family gatherings.

Above picture was when we were invited by friends for dinner
at school where their daughter's doing the cooking.

Since our daughter still unsure what she's going to follow for the university
we've signed here in for a 'career insight test' which was in Utrecht.
It took two days so we had to booked in a hotel, while she's in for the
test me & Kees went out a bit for sightseeing and shopping!

It's Chris second year taking guitar lessons, partly a solo lessons and a band one. As a band they've participated at one of the activities organized by the school(music) and won second place.

Thanks so much for the Easter greetings and all the lovely comments. Hope everyone had a wonderful Easter.
