First of all I would like to take the opportunity to wish all my online friends a very happy New Year. :)
To my absolute shame I have to confess that the last update of my blog site is more then a month ago. There is a very good excuse for that though. My parents are visiting from Europe and that is of course a joy. It also means that my internet time is cut down to a complete minimum because I don't want to miss out much of that precious time with them and there for I barely have the time to sit at the computer. And almost all of that little computer time is eaten up by my girls who are in Europe because we try to talk shortly with each other in my late evening/their late morning.
I do however have now again a bit more time for stitching. The Christmas and New Years stress is gone, the kids are in Europe and we often sit together in front of the tv in the evenings. Usually that time get used for stitching too. I managed to finish 2 exchange pieces - which I can't show yet, and I finished page 3 of "Coming to Life"
And there is one more good news. I got a lovely Christmas gift from Mike. He gave me several gifts - one of them was a cross stitch kit. It's called "Amsterdam" by Thea Gouverneur. It's not only a lovely picture, but for us it means precious memories too. I was suprised how big it is. It's 590 x 290 stitches. But it will be worth it. Even more because Mike loves it too.
