So much to show you..

.... so little time =))

First I wanne thank you all for helping me with sending tips and links from website where I can look for fabrics ;)
You helped me so much. ♥
Have to work 3 night shifts now, then I have  long time off, and will look at it all to order.

* ♥ *

Where too begin first???
My new Soda Stitch
It's such a beautifull piece, and fast to stitch..
As I already have done so much..
I can show you a lot of progress
I started in the evening after putting the kids to bed
And the next day, it looked like this
Page 4 was already done ( it was a easy page).
Then the next day I got another 'easy' page done
I loved that there was more colors in it now.
Then a few days later ..
Yes, now needed to do a lot more stitching, almost another page is done
The legs are there..
I only need to do the backstitches of this page and then can move on to the next and last one!!
But I put it aside, as I wanted to work on other pieces too.

♥ * ♥

The shrug is coming along great too.
I just finished the second ball of wool, now working on the third and last one.
Hope it's enough, don't have more.. but it will turn out great I hope.
Soon more about this..

The crochet winter pieces for the kids
 The hat I shown before, but now with the buttom, as it was to big in the bag, patterns is from here
 A hat for under the bike helmet, own creation
 Earwarmers with beautifull white flowers , own creation
 A lovely cowl, pattern also from here
 Here you can see it all
 Noah's hat, but you already seen this one
 And made Noah also a cowl.
He is very happy with it all
I love the stitch of the cowl, it's just sc, but in back stitch - front stitch - back stitch - front stitch etc etc
I made a lovely collage of it all
Kira are ready for the cold!!
And they look so pretty in it all.

I have done another little bit of crochet.
It was time to make some things out of al those pins I did in Pinterest.
Here is Kira's new hairband
She wears it often.. she really loves it!
It also looks good on her..
I didn't know if a bif rose would be nice.. but I like it!!
Many of her clothing have this color, so she can wear it many days...

For me I made some bracelets
Bought where on the list to make for years.. finally did it!
Very happy with them

* ♥ *

Yesterday morning was a special moment.
It was the first time Kira try out on primary school ( is that the good word for 4years old?)
In January, she will turn 4 already, and 10 weeks before you can try every week a morning.
She loved it so much!!
And the first thing she did... was look for a table with a puzzle... hihihi
She can't wait for the next time.

♥ * ♥

Then lets look at what the kids did with all the apple's
It was getting dark when we finsihed them,, that's why the pic's are not that good...
But you can see what we did..
Kira put her wreath next to the front door, and Noah in the back garden in the table.
Look at how beautifull they made it all, it was so fun.. next year we will try again, and make also other things with it all.
♥ I enjoy them every day!! ♥

Then to end this long post.
I have one pic from our Fall-vaction.
On Wednesday, we went to Lego-world in Utrecht ( middle of the country).
It every year, they say it's the biggest Lego event of the world
Kids had a awesome time.
They even got on the photo with the King and Queen
They look so cool.
They made this photo's, I needed to gave my email-adres, and then they would sent it.. 
How cool is that!!
We all, also DH and me, had a great day!!!!

I hear my oven.. time to eat... till next time

I wanna thank everyone for visiting my blog and especially everyone who leaves a comment!!
 I love reading them!!
 ♥ Have a great day ♥

I'm always so happy to see photos of the kids--love them modeling your creations as well as waving with the King and Queen. They look like they both have their "royal waves" down perfectly :)

Kira is in nursery school already!!?? Wow--where have the years gone? I'm glad she enjoyed her first day...

Looking forward to seeing your new piece of stitching progress, Annette--you are really flying through this one :)
