Here I am again

after such a long time... and I've done a lot:

I made with 2 other mums the decor for the musical of our kids, I made the outline and they helped fill in. The title was: Graduation 8 goes flaming (partying; because they're going to Highschool):

Jasper was playing the teacher of the graduatingclass who are going to have a party in the hall of the school, but there are heared strange noises which have to be searched out. There's also a song about the Nightbeast:
I made the masks of the nightbeast, rat, rabbit, mouse,
It was lots of fun and special helping and making.

We went to the Vendée in France, for a sun-sand-sea vacation. It was lovely there

I love those trees

We went with our tent:

My 3 men are playing table tennis competition, so at the campside should be played also... only the table wasn't really a good one (actually it was a terrible one)...

Yoeri and Jasper were found every day in the swimmingpool (their requirement for the campsite: a swimmingpool and wifi, and both were there)
The roof could be openend, but never was

I also had to make some cross-stitches: (it's not the most beautiful/flattering picture of me)

I bought 2 magazins, one with a little book

the last one with a new project (oh my... when am I gonna make all my whished projects???)

I did some crochet also, I want to make a bag of it:

The bear for Vanessa is almost finished (the last backstitches have to be made), and goes tomorrow with the postman on his way to Belgium.

Everything is washed away, cleaned up and in storage again. The cats and guinee pigs are happy again that we're at home.

The boys have still one and a half week vacation and have to start sept 6th again. Their books are in, they will be covered tomorrow, so almost ready to be used, even as the rest (agenda, writingbooks, case, pens, pensils, etc)

crochet & more

One and a half week ago another mum from school wanted to learn me how to crochet. Can I do that? Yes, I can!!! :-) I'm very happy I can, it's so much fun.
my first one, halfway up I did myself, under H. showed me how to crochet

I found this freebie pattern on the web

I tried and tried and tried, but now I can...

my next mob-bag, only in a different color purple

It was a hot week with lots of sun, so I didn't do much stitchery. I always get such sweatty hands. Only a little bit of the cats eye. But now I have to concentrate on the bear, the only thing is that the colors for the backstitches are not right and complete on the countingpaper... I really have to sit down an take a good look at it.

Because it was so hot in the sun and I couldn't stitch, I made some juwelery

My vegetables are growing well

pics of my veggies and my Mothersday-present

Yesterday I forgot to take a pic of my growing vegetables, so I have them today:

my cucumbers, small and big:

the courgette:

my tomato-flowers:

and my strawberries:

And my Mothersday present: a lovely gardenpicture of lavender:

Because it's raining the picture is not as beautifull as it is hanging there in the sun... But I can see it also from the house, I love lavender.

And again a pic of Dotje (Little Dear), who died last friday:

Long time no hear

I've had some busy weeks, busy with a lot and also nothing...
I orderd a lot of colors and have almost every color now. I've winded almost 100 bobbins but still have 20 to do:

I've made some progress with the bear for Vanessa and my Mary Wigham SAL:

I have also some sad news, 1,5 week ago I noticed a big bump on my white guinee pig, which grew very fast. It was by her throat/breast and not to operate. Last friday I decided to end up her life, she was soo sick, didn't eat fridaymorning, she couldn't sleep because when she layed down the bump was in the way, difficulty with breathing... She was adorable and loved giving kisses. She whould become 3 on the 14 of july. I hope she is very happy in the guinee pig heaven now.
I love you 4 ever, Dotje!

At the back is Beertje (Little Bear), the male. The red-white one is Fluffy, white one Dotje (Little Dear), the brown-white one is Snuitje (Little Snout)and the 3-colored one is Robijn (Rubin), all female.

Because I was so sad, I gave myself permission to start a new project. I want to make the 4 seasons-cats of CATS of the world in cross-stitch from Jayne Netley Maayhew & Nicki Wheeler and started with the grey winter-cat:

My vegetables are growing very fast but I forgot to make a pic, I will edit it tomorrow.
The tomatoplant has little flowers, the snack-cucumber and courgette are having little flowers also and also already some little fruits!!!

I also won an award by Sarah, but I will show it in my next post.
