Happy New Year!!!! and a new blog started!!!!!

I started a new blog for the Shores of Hawk Run Hollow lovers. Look at the left for the link and feel free to participate.

For all my Blogger Friends!

I wish you all a lucky, healthy and good 2010 with a lot of cross stitch finishes!!!!

And now I have to post some last pictures for 2009.

Some of you already know that my youngest Dorine is sick for almost 3 weeks now. She's recovering from a pneumonia and right now the medicine are doing good work. She's eating again and not throwing up anymore. That's why I was going to my office in the evenings. Because my works keeps me very busy the last month.

When she was getting sick already, she and her sister had a Christmas diner at school:
Cheese Croissants for Dorine's class.

A special salad for Emma's class.

Just a couple of days before Christmas it went snowing and snowing and snowing:

Lots of fun for Emma making a snowman. Dorine just a little bit ofcourse; here she was already throwing up, but she wanted to go outside for a short time.

Look how much; not normal for Holland.

Troubles opening and closing the backdoor.

This my DH's motorcycle, but he was wise enough to take his own car to work. Last year he didn't have a car, so I had to push him to the road, sitting on the motor. Can you believe it?

And a least but not least, my progress on The Shores of Hawk Run Hollow:

Block six and seven almost done. I'm going to finish this today.

And a little sneak peak...

I hope to start on Januari 1st with my first Christmas ornament. I'm planning to do these one per month. So I must have twelve pieces at the end of 2010.

This is my last post for 2009, so... till next year... lots of love and hugs!

So sorry to hear your daughter has been so sick! That is not good. I had pneumonia at about her age. I spent 7 days in the hospital. It was not fun at all! I hope she is recovering soon.
Love you Shores! What are you stitching with? The colors are wonderful.
Thanks for setting up the blog. I will be happy to join.
Have a great New Year. Hopefully your family will enjoy better health this year.

I am so glad that Dorine is feeling a bit better now. Pneumonia can be so difficult to get rid of.

I am going to start HOHRH whilst you do your Shores.

Lastly I wish you and your family a Happy & Healthy New Year.

Wat fijn dat je dochter weer aan de beterende hand is. Je shores ziet er al prachtig uit. Sinds vanmorgen is het hier opnieuw gaan sneeuwen (in het zuiden). Ik wens jullie een fantastisch 2010 toe !
