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.
