A few things

Last week we got a lot of sunshine so it's was time to do some work in the garden. Such a joy to see my Helleborus collection and other plants blooming after the winter.

This winter Jasmine was a slip from my friend.

My daughter went to Paris and brought me 3 cross-stitch magazines and some laces. I have been collecting the x-stitch magazines from the whole world for a while. When I'm on holiday I always try to find some.

The postman brought this cute, little piece from Hungary. Lilang send to me for the LK exchange. She was so fast that it arrived in time before Easter. Isn't great?

I stitched this rooster for Sharlotte. She was my partner in Easter exchange. I saw on her wishlist, that she like this LHN chart. It's stitched on Zweigart 32 count linen using DMC threads. I changed the colours of some of the flowers.

It was such a great weather on Saturday so we took a walk in Delftse Hout. After that we had a great dinner at Cafe du Midi.

I visited my daughter. She is also a bunny lover. This is Noppie, isn't cute? She bought "her" as a female bunny but after seven months she discovered that he is a male.
And here are her Siberian kittens. Aren't they lovely?

  1. The LK exchange is cute and I love that Rooster pinkeep you made, the fabric on the back is perfect :) Cute bunny and the kittens are just too adorable!

  2. Beautiful flowers and exchange piece. I love that LHN rooster you made -- what exquisite finishing! And the fabric back is perfect for it! Nice rabbit and cats too!

  3. So Conny, are you allergic to the gorgeous cats?? Noppie is a sweetie - when I was in university I had a "Dutch bunny" named Simon who went everywhere with me. I still miss him.

  4. What lovely exchanges both sent and received.
    And such adorable bunny and kittens.

  5. Ahhh, your garden is looking so good and one can see that spring has really come. We cut some twigs off our forsythia and put them into a vase and now they are blooming. It's a delight to look at them. The forsythia bushes outside are still in the waiting mode, lol. Waiting for some warmth.
    The exchnage pieces are gorgeous.

  6. What a great post Conny, such a lovely array of pictures to look at. I love the rooster pinkeep you made, its beautiful.
