White White White!!!!

But first....
Look at what the postman have brought yesterday night.

A few weeks ago I was one of the lucky winners of Andrea RAK giveaway.
She had choose to let 11 lucky people win a ornament, I'm so happy to be one of them....
Look at the lovely ornament she had made for me!!!
Thank you so much Andrea for the lovely gift

Yes the white. I have done al the white in my snowmen banner. It was al lots of white, and this evening I was very glad that it was finished. White snow, white snowmen and white snowflakes, white white white.....
Still need to do 2 colors and al the backstitches. One of the colors I need to order first, it run out. Then the backstitches again, with 1, 2 and 3 threads!!!!
Hope that they are done soon...
And hope it wil be done for christmas, then I can hang in on the wall

The card for my pregnant friend is done, hope she has arrived it.
Here the end result.

I also made another card but can't show it yet, it's also a lovely card.

This week I hope to start my first christmas ornament for myself.
Also need to make one for the EMS exchange where I signed up for.

That was it for tonight, thanks al for stopping by and leaving a comment...

Sewing machine works again!!!!

Yes!!! DH had made my sewing machine. The overall is for three-quarter done.
Here a photo of Noah wearing it, so I can see how it fits.

After the photo, I have sewed the sleeves, and made the pants part.
But I'm stuck know, need to ask my friend what to do next....

This week a friens mailed me her echo of her baby, she is 11,5 weeks pregnant of her first baby. So great!!!!
I'm stitching a card, the stitching part is done, now need to make it in to a card

It's a lovely design too.
It's a freebie I found on the web (but don't know where anymore), and it's not the first time I stitched it.
3,5 years ago when my friend was pregnant of Robbert I stitched it into a bib. She still use it, and is very pleased with it.
That was one of the first stitching I had done in years, after that I made a few little things but from the moment I was pregnant I was addicted again......

On the snowmen I have stitched a bit.
It the first time I need to stitch backstitches not only with 1 threads but with 2 and 3 threads too. The red backstitches I have done so far, are with 3 threads. It's not easy, but it looks great

I still love the design and can wait till it's done....

But it's late I want to go to bed, till next time.

Thanks so much for stopping by and leaving a comment.

Miffy done!!

The last stitches on Miffy are done, than what to stitch around?....think think.... after very hard thinking I decided this:

In English it means Little one ....... (there stands the backname)
It's for a pregnant friend.
Now only make a bib of it, but I want to stitch some more bibs and wait till they are done, so I can sew them al togheter.

I started a new bib, what will be a present for Sinterklaas for Robbert (Cars boy)
He is 3 years and can say his name, so on the bib stand 'I am Robbert .......'. Now need to stitch some tractors around it, he love's tractors.

I have made 3 trousers this week, 2 for nephew Mika and 1 for Noah. The trousers for Mika are Sinterklaas present, Now only need to make the garden pants with Bob the Builder on it. Than his presents are almost done.

Before I started my blog I didn't now that there where some many thing you can stitch. Flatfold, biscornu etc... Christmas/Halloween/Summer stitches. The to do stitch list is getting longer and longer, so I will start to try to stitch for every holiday something..
So if I'm not doing enough, I started my first real christmas stitch.
It's a Dimensions pattern, and so easy and lovely to stitch...

This is what I did yesterday evening, I couldn't stop stitching, It was because I was tired otherwise I stitch through all the night.
Tonight and tomorrow evening I need to work, so hope to do some more stitching on saterday evening than DH needs to work, so I have a the time for myself when Noah is asleep...

I'm off to do some more cleaning and than go to work.

As a child I loved to see that Sinterklaas came on his boat with al the Zwarte Pieten. Past Saterday it was on the television that he has arrived again. So Noah and me sat on the sofa watching...Now Noah didn't care about it, so he went playing, but I watched from the beginnig to the end......

For who don't know who Sinterklaas en Zwarte Piet are, look here at wikipedia

I have tryed to make a photo of Noah with his Pieten cap, put he don't like it to have something on his head.
Here you can see that he is trying to put it of.

After looking at the the photo's of last year I have found the picture of last year with the cap on.

3,5 month old is he here, so little and so CUTE!!!!

I have started a little bit of decoration for Sinterklaas, want to do more, but don't know what, here you can see the boat in the hall-way

When there is more, I will show you.

I have stitched a bit on Miffy

Now only need to stitch al the white, and than need to think what to do around Miffy.

It's the only flower that blooms at the moment.....

So I off to some stitching again.

Cows frames!!!!

Yes, finally I frames the cows. Tomorrow off to the store to buy something so i can hang them up.

The only problem is that Noah was trying to help, so in the first frame the glass broke, so I also have to buy a new piece of glass. That boy is costing me a milion......hihi

Also my SAL's has progressing well. The Animal SAL is a hard pattern to stitch the symbols look a like, so I have made a few mistakes, but frogging isn't a option, so keep on the stitching.....
The Fall SAL part 2 is done, finally.
I just got the next parts on both SAL, so I will by busy in my vacation.
Yes I have 2 weeks vacation, a lot of time do stitch and sew.
I'm have a lot op plans of things to make, so I won't be bored..

Yesterday we wnet to the woods again, Noah loved it.
Today I bought a pair of green rainboots, they are so cute. DH already brought a pair, but they are the big, also very cute red with blue.
Here is a lovely photo, next time with the boots...
