Come and see!

Fast as always I have already received the summer exchange piece from Angela. Look at this gorgeous flatfold! This is my first one.
Thoughtfull as she is, she stitched bunnies for me. And how can she knows that I'm very fond of strawberries? The design is from LHN strawberries. Stitched on 28 count Autumn fields lugana
using CC and DMC 321.

Even the backside is lovely. The fabric fits so well. I love love this piece very much!
When you think that's all I get? Another lovely SWAP Christmas piece from Angela. The design is from LHN Woodland snowfall. If you click on the picture you can see the cute little beads she used.

Thanks so much Angela for spoiling me with two gorgeous pieces. I really love them both. For sure I'm going to treasure them. Even it's not Christmas already, it's hanging in my livingroom now. Thanks again for these wonderful exchanges!!!
Wish you all a Happy Weekend!

Happy birthday to you and you and me.

June is a really busy months for us. We celebrate 3 birthdays in our family. Today is our son's birthday. On monday the 14th ( my birthday) I'm going for a short vacation to Drenthe. Our daughter's birthday is on the 16th of June so we celebrate our birthdays together on the 19th of June.
This is my Holiday Summer exchange piece for Myra. The design is from La-D-Da called Daisy, Daisy. I decide not to stitch this piece on tea dyed fabric but on soft pink fabric. I also change some of the DMC colours. So happy that Myra loves it.

At last I finished my first quiltpiece. I'm very proud that it turns out quite nice.
Last week I received the Summer exchange piece from Ellen. The package made a long journey from Singapore to Holland. The design is from Dawn Thread called summer. I really love, love it! Look at the backing fabric. It fits so well.

She also spoiled me with some goodies. It felt like I have my birthday already. Thanks so much Ellen for this wonderful exchange!

Thanks your visit and your sweet comments.

A little bit of .......

On sunday the 30th of May we got a shower of hail. It's unbelievable that it can happen in May. The weather was awful from the beginning of the week until the end. It was cold with only 12 degrees in the morning.
It doesn't harm some of the plants. The snowball is going on with blooming.
A pinkeep for my sister's birthday. The design is from LK stitched on linen with DMC threads
I received this beautiful BBD round 4 piece from Rebecca. She was worried because it took a little bit longer before it arrived. It's a beauty isn't? All worhty to wait for. She also spoiled me with a medal, which I can hang on a chain or to use it as scissorfob.

The backside has a place for a scissor. I shall treasure this lovely pincushion. Thanks Rebecca!
