My Daughters Pillow

This is a lovely pillow I made for my daughter R. for Christmas. It is a pattern by Lizzy Kate and I have put some lovely charms on it. My daughter is crazy about it and keeps it near her to cheer herself up.

More Christmas gifts

More Christmas gifts. These one comes from my friend R. A bag and 2 boxes with
DMC variations threads. It's hard to see but I got a little stable with figurines too.
Aren't they lovely?

Another Christmas gifts

A Christmas gift from my son. Look at these lovely charts of Little
House Needworks and Hinzeit. I love the 3 buttons very much.
Why do you think?
From Brasil my daughter brought me a Needlecraft magazine with
a lot of Christmas cross-stitching.

A short holidaybreak in Drenthe ( Netherlands)

My husband and I had a nice vacation in Drenthe.
The weather was not so sunny but ok there is a lot
to do there. We visited de Handwerkboetiek in Roden (www.dehandwerkboetiek.nl) which has beautiful American charts. Also two Quiltshops with a huge collection. The top box shows the fabric from Staphorst. At staphorst they still make tradional clothes with these fabrics. The other box is from de Naaidoos (www.denaaidoos.nl)
