Back home!

Hi all,

I kinda fell of the face of the earth the last two weeks since I was at the Belgian coast collecting seashells and making paper flowers with the kids :-). The weather was typical for a Belgian summer which included sun and rain the same day and this for almost two weeks. Nevertheless, we had a great time because we had quite some quality time together!

Stitching wise I finished the lion panel on the Serengeti mandala (part five) and I started a new Christmas piece which is quite large called "Weihnachten steht for der Tür" (Christmas is just around the corner) from UB Designs (a German designer). This is the first piece I'll be stitching from this lady, but I already ordered a second one :-)

This one will be big - I've used a 12 count instead of the required 8 threads/cm.
I think it will be at least 1-and-a-half metre big :-)

Green-blue table topper

I've also added five new booklets to my Mango Pratique collection and found a second hand quilting book which is really great and of which I think it is from the 70's (I'm not great anymore reading Roman numbers :-).

I  can't find images of the two other ones but this will follow

That's it for today ... I'll be showing my progress on Serengeti and the Christmas tree this week and also some "inside" piccies of the books :-)

See ya soon!
