I'm feeling very lucky!

The most of you know that I now have change my home office in a real working office.
This is the front side:

And this is "my door" to my workroom:

And why am I so lucky, you must think?
My neighbour have a store in.... beads and stuff. They also have a website: Mooiste Kralen. I was visiting him this morning and I was feeling like a child in a toysstore. It's feels the same, when I visit a store in cross stitch stuff. Do you know the feeling?

And a last picture I want to show you. My father had a good day last week and he wants to try my brother's motor! Only sitting though, that's safe:

No pictures yet from my WIP's and other projects to share. I'm working hard on projects for my PIF-member right now. Maybe at the end of the week; I'm trying to choose which projects I'm gonna start: something for Halloween or working on a WIP.

So till next time, lots of hugs and love!

A birthday present and a new stitching beauty!

Look what the postman brought me last week:

Patti sent me this lovely birthday gift. Isn't she sweet, this little lady? She will have a special place in my living room. Patti, again thank you so much best friend!

An other package was sent to me last week, and that's what I ordered from Traditional Stitches:

I've ordered the complete kit: 30-count purple linen, dmc floss and ofcourse the Spooky Tin along with the finishing kit. (click on picture to enlarge if you want)
It's was a very crazy week for me. I went to the doctors and he did an ECG for checking my heart. That was oke! Then he sent me to the hospital to have a mammography. That was oke too, at least no breastcancer. Why, you ask. Because I have terrible pain in my left breast and chest. Now I have to wait a couple of days and then I will know what it really is.

In the meanwhile I've finished my first PIF and I started the second one.

Till next time, love and hugs.

Thank you for all the comments, I appreciate them very much.

Just a little note...

Unbelievable but true...

My father came home from hospital yesterday! They haven't found anything "wrong" with his heart. His pacemaker is doing well, and his heart is going fast and slow, but that's not something new. I've said to him: "Don't pray to much about leaving this world, please." He is so strong! Unfortunately Parkinson disease is getting him really hard again. I wish I could take it away from him.

And a little update about stitching. My first PIF is finished. All I have to do is finish finish it, but that's for the weekend. My second PIF is waiting for some thread I haven't in my stash. Just now I've search some more projects for the other members and I found lovely charts for them. Be patient, please!

Thank you all for your prayers about my father! You all are the best friends I have around the world!

Love and hugs and till next time...

Lots of WIP's!

I was going through my very big WIP-basket yesterday evening, and I found this lovely Doll House again. So I couldn't help myself, and put some more stitches in a "new" room. No, not really new. I pulled it all out the last time. I had made a terrible misstake on some stitches unfortunately. It's stitched over one on 32-count. After three hours this is how much I've done. Not bad, isn't it? As far as it was earlier. A sweet tiny boysroom!

It's hard to choose from so many great projects, so I also made some little progress for one of my PIF members. I will let you take a little sneak peak on it.

Ofcourse It's just a little piece of the whole project, otherwise It isn't a suprise anymore.

Special thanks to Paulette, she teached me how to use my own camera for making close up's.

Thanks for looking and for your comments. I appreciate them very much.
Till next time...

Mary Margaret update.

To proof (mostly for myself) that I'm stitching again, I have to show some progress pictures on my Mary Margaret.(Click on photo, to enlarge, if you want a closer look)



As you can see, last weekend I made a little progress with the tree on the left.
The other girls are waiting to stitch also, so I must keep the needle going, right?
Thanks for stopping by and your comments. I love to read them. Love and hugs!

First stitches are made and some pictures from our holiday!

Yeah, I have stitched the first cross stitches again, after a very long time. It's for the first PIF-member, so I can't show you any picture. But it's almost done, and then I have to finish finish it.

That's why I want to share a couple of pictures of our holiday to Crete - Greece this year: (click on picture to enlarge)
