My stitching plans for the next week!

Tomorrow I will be on a short holiday for one week and what will I bring with me:

1. Mary Margaret from Carriage House Samplings;

this is my progress so far:

2. Baubles April from SamSarah (almost forgotten and April is almost over);
3. A Needlework Garden and Needlebook SAL.

I will only be stitching in the evenings, so I hope I have a good light there. We are planning to do a lot of little trips and spending a lot of time in the swimming pool with our kids.

Yesterday Emma had her first running experience; it's the Week of Sports in Holland and she had to run two kilometers. She did it in 15 minutes, so that's good for a first time though. She's wearing the schoolshirts, which I sponsored with my own company. My company name is on the back, which you can't see on the picture unfortunately.

As you can see, she's smiling, so she had a great time doing it.

Till next week...

PS Don't forget to sign in on my "special" PIF (see my earlier post)!

Congratulations to your daughter on her first race! Mary Margaret is looking great! And hope that you enjoy your time off and get a lot of stitching done.

Mary Margaret is a darling sampler. I hope you get to stitch a lot. Sometimes those hotels have terrible light. I always take the lampshades off and put several lights together.

Your daughter looks great in her running shirt. It's so fun to see them accomplish such great things.

Congratulations to Emma. I'm sure you will get as much stitching done in the evenings as I could do if I stitched or maybe 15 hours and I really look forward to seeing what you do. I love Mary Margaret. Love Patti xxx
