Small finish

Today I have this small finish to show. It is small, but it took me quite some time! Okay, I'll admit I have been busy with the larger WIPS, and somewhere in my mind I seem to be thinking I can finish a smaller one whenever I want. And that means it lays on my desk, and weeks later it still lays on my desk. Sounds familiar?
Maybe because I am not that well today (some kind of nasty bug) the larger pieces don't get my attention, I finished finally. It's a little SAL of the Oakhaven group, a great, helping group. Tonia, the leader of this bunch of women is a sweetie, and she provides us with lots of surprises
(you might want to join us? ). Some days ago she organized a group chat, and although I didn't manage to join (due to my settings on Yahoo messenger) some girls didn't give up to get me in. And yesterday it worked out great. We had a little group chat, and is great fun, hearing each others voices, some of them with a great American accent LOL As a common Dutch girl a pleasure to hear! My microphone kept fading away, but I hope that's fixed now, DS gave it a look this afternoon. I tested with Skype, and I think it's okay now, so I'm looking forward to the next group chat. Anyway, here is Love Grows.

Last saturday DH and I went to Doesburg. There's this quiltshop, Atelier Bep, I heard about and I wanted to take a look and add some things to my stash. I was planning to go by train, but Fridaynight DH all of a sudden suggested we could go together, by car. Always good, doing things together as a couple (keeps the fire burning LOL), so he didn't need much time to convince me.

For all of you, interested in other places, this is (part of) modern Doesburg.

And 'Old' Doesburg

The sampler turned out so to be so pretty. Great job!

Looks like a fun place to go. We stitchers know no bounds when it comes to finding a good store for supplies!

This is a such a nice little sampler.
