Our friend just left for their holidays

...but they will be back in about 2 weeks. And then we will go on holidays. I am so looking forward to our holidays. We will go on a roundtrip for about 1 1/2 weeks and then we have to come back because Lisa has an appointment with a specialist and will get tubings in her ears. Hopefully that will keep her safe from these almost permanent ear infections.

I am excited since I got Vikki Claytons newsletter saying that she is in the process of dying 40ct linen. That is definately a must buy for me....well known as a linen addict.... Can't wait till she is offering it in her shop!

So this is my not too big progress on Rubie Owl's Sampler. Surprisingly I am not tired of stitching the leaves, yet. I absolutely love them and the colours.

And this is where I spent some time during the weekends while Lisa is playing in her little pool in the yard.

Just some stash

As predicted in my last post not too much stitching going on. But I took a picture of some stash I got lately. "It's Berry Time" looked so nice that I had to order it right away when I first saw it.

I made a nice progress

on Rubie Owl but I doubt that I will go on in this pace. Today some friends moved in with us. They decided to move back to their homecountry and sold their house so we offered to move in with us instead of living in a motel until they actually leave. It is kind of a challenge to live together with some other people in one house but I am positve we will get along for a few weeks.

As soon as the weather is warm and sunny...

....time goes by unbelievable fast. I had two finishes since my last post but no pictures yet. :(
And I got some stash .... and guess what ... no pictures yet ;(

But I started on Rubie Owl's Sampler by Plum Street Samplers yesterday. I got it in the mail on friday. Thanks so much to Paulette for creating this wonderful design. The colours are my absolute favourite.
This is how much I got done yesterday night:

The colours are lighter and a bit brighter in real life but what more can one expect from a scan.
