Can't believe....

...it's been more than a couple of months since my last update here. How time flies by... Thought was only a month but was quite shocked when i open my blog that it has been two months away! Probably because i haven't done much stitching lately. Working long hours, these last weeks around 10hours and sometimes 12hours. Weather has been good here so been pretty busy and sometimes chaotish at work.

 These two finishes has been completed more than a month and a couple small ones too but was for exchanges, have to wait for posting pics as i am not sure if the recipients visits my blog. 
This design is of Plum Street Samplers. Love it and hope to finish it off into a flatfold one day...












Early this week on my day-off, has been sunny but too windy for a walk along the dike so we drove off
to the woods for a walk and got lost so instead of an hour it took us about a couple of hours to get back to the car... Haven't been there in years. When the children were small we usually go there for walks, that has been 8 years ago!

After a long day at work, out with friends/colleagues and family for a drinks. Ended up usually late while i have to start early the next morning but it's worth it..
 
Since i prefer to read after work days instead of stitching i ordered some books from bol.com...i have six here on the picture but actually i had 7. Noticed it when i went to throw the box the next morning and one came out of it. I didn't realise i ordered lot in one time...

  
We're off tomorrow for a couple of days with Chris and one of his friends to one of the indoor parks at the mainland, hope to unwind and relax and sure take a couple of the books.

Do hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend!

Great to read you again, Mylene. And good to know that you are still stitching. You have two lovely finishes here.
Reading is always a great thing - I can't do without books either, lol. Have a great rest of the summer with your books.
