Coming home from Paris I got the summer flu. Becky cheers me up with this beautiful pincushion stitched from a freebie of Gloria Bee, called Spring Tulips. I love it, it's a little bit Holland don't you think? Thanks so much, Becky!

This the piece, which I sent to Joanie for the BBD exchange round4. I stitched this piece from BBD book Honeysuckle Manor, the stitcher's companion using Tentakulum Painter's thread Matisse.

Maybe you do remember my birdhouse, which you saw here before. This is the second one, which I used for the Seasonal exchange.
Marjorie received it and luckily she loves it. The design is from a part of PS chart Birdsong 2, using the recommended threads.
Wish you all a Happy and Sunny weekend. Thanks for your sweet comments.

Happy Mother's day

Mother's day surprise. My daughter's took me to the tearoom Leonidas in Delft to have a hightea.
The food looked great and tasted well. It was very special to me because my food was gluten-free. We also had Yasmin tea, peppermint tea and green tea. It was delicous!! Thanks girls for
this surprise.

The peonies in the front garden are blooming again. Look at the colour!

More peonies. Last saturday the postman brought me a big package from France.
My son ordered a cross-stitch book for me. It's all about peonie's from the painter and designer Marie-Therese Saint-Aubain. Maybe you also know her first book, which is called Chat (cat).

I love these beautiful charts. Isn't a great gift for the Mother's day? Thanks son!

Thanks for visiting me. Wish you all a wonderful Mother's day!
