I'm back!

Hi all,

First of all I want to thank you for your mails from the last couple of weeks. Although I didn't find the time to respond to you individually, they were highly appreciated!

So where have I been? Well, we went to Provence for two weeks and we had a ball! Quality time together, good temperatures (always around 31°C), a couple of swimming pools and waterslides, lots of beautifull villages, excellent food and wine ... everything was there to make it an unforgettable holiday!

Like last year I've also visited the patchwork exhibition at the "Domaine des Girasols".

Stitching wise I didn't do a lot because I had a couple of good books from Nora Roberts with me. They were so intriguing that I read more than I embroidered. My other stitching stuff didn't even get out of it's bag!!! I had a couple of Halloween pieces with me : Scream House - Just Nan, Sleepy Hollow - The Cricket Collection, Halloween Tree - Renato Parolin, Trio of Witches - The Needle's notion and the Christmas tablecloth from Acufactum - sigh ...

I finished the first and - almost - second house of the Santa's Village though! :-)

Pictures will follow soon (am experiencing some problems with my camera for the moment)!



P.S.: It was a real joy to admire and smell all those lavender and sunflower fields in full bloom!

Glad you had a nice vacation! Even if there wasn't much stitching, the main purpose of a vacation is just please yourself and relax :-)

Fijn dat je zo genoten hebt van je vakantie. En die Abdij daar ben ik ook geweest, alleen was de lavendel toen al gesnoeid. Prachtig plaatje en ook prachtige sfeer, heel bijzonder. Groeten, Nienke
