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.
