June update!

WheW! i almost can't believe it that i haven't posted for more than a month. Oh how time flies!! Let me start with my latest finishes though still needed to be finish into ornaments. Will include the designer when i'll post them completed as i have to search through the piled up unfinished projects. Did started a few more projects but not much done to show an update. Today, we've driven to the city(University,Utrecht) where our daughter's studying! We've never been there for a visit since she did manage all on her own, now it's nearly the end of the school year and she has quite some things to take home so we offer to go for a visit and take some of her things back. WOW! i love where she is boarding, high on the 14th floor of one of the Campus appartment complex, picture below. Been to the city for lunch and a bit of sight seeing. A couple of weeks ago, that was father's day...the day started rainy and strong winds but around mid- afternoon the weather cleared up so when a friend unexpectedly stopped by we went out to one of the beaches here for dinner and afterwards evening walk in the woods! Too windy to go for a walk at the beach though. The band FOOT-C had there last performance mid of June...After 4 years together and sure they had enjoyed every performance and music school where they are having there lessons are quite proud of them as they were one of the most group-of the younger groups that had performed so many times during there four years together. The two girls wouldn't want to stay or move on with the group so everyone have try..that is if they are still interested to continue playing in a group. Chris does wants too, so we hope he'll find another group to move on next school year. As with Chris and school..lots has been going on. Infact, Chris unexpectedly ended up per Ambulance to the hospital at the mainland a week ago. It was monday morning and two whole classes left for a week school outing to Belgium. He was left behind with one of the boy from the other class who wasn't allowed to join the group too. He was unexpectedly not feeling well, stomach ache, problem with breathing, and high fever...our family doctor can't find out what he has so she sent him to the hospital. Luckily, after all the test they've undergone nothing was found out. We suspect it is all due to the stressed at school. It is now summer vacation for six weeks so he'll have a break from school. Though we are still doing some follow ups to find the right person who can help him and us...more on next time. On an impulse one morning been to a bookstore and bought these books..Read three of them already and been to the library last week but really not much choices there, old issues as usual for the english category so i borrowed a couple of dutch ones instead. Wish everyone a Happy Week!

Hello Mylene,

Love the coloured linen for the snow cross stitch. Your family is growing up. Hoping for Chris to find some new people to play in a band with him. Thanks for sharing the places you visit, it is great to see some of the old buildings.

Happy days.

Lovely stitching Mylene

What a busy month you've had, Mylene! So glad your son is okay--stress can really cause a variety of physical problems. It will be nice to have him relax over summer vacation.

Love your latest finishes. I've done the little snowman, too, and have the other small chart in my stash. Enjoy your July!

Pretty stitching projects.. glad you can squeeze in time for it.

Love that setting for a university. What a great place to go to school.

Sounds like a good year for Chris and the music. Must have been scary when he got so sick and no one could diagnose it. But I'm glad to hear he's recovered and ready to enjoy the summertime!

Life does get busy, doesn't it?! I haven't updated my blog for weeks.
I'm always glad for the end of a school year when the kids get to have a bit of a break. One of my sons isn't getting much of one this year though, as he's working full time and taking two summer classes.

Glad to see that with everything else, you're still able to pick up your stitching and make some progress!

Very lovely family pictures. I hope that your son is feeling fine again and that he will find another band where he can play music.
