House number three

I was determined to finish house number three last week and I succeeded (of course LOL) I didn't show you the picture right away, due to the weather. It has been hot in the Netherlands, really hot! As I am getting older (I'm already in my fifties LOL), I can't stand the heat that well anymore. And my craftroom is in the attic, right under the roof, and therefore the warmest place in our house. I simply hadn't the energy to sit there and update my blog. But, today it is much cooler and with the window wide open I can sit behind my computer again without melting like a snowman :)

In a few days holidays are over and we are preparing going back to school and work again. I can't complain as I had nine weeks off from work, being a schoollibrarian at high school has its advantages :)
We had a wonderful holiday, went out for daytrips several times, I had lots of time to stitch and trying out some quilting. There was also time to go for a swim a few times a week and the weather was great, it really was a wonderful summer! And besides all that we went to France for two weeks were we spent quality time with our family!
I started a new project, A Kitten's Tale. The first block isn't finished yet, but the main part is, so I thought I could show already.

Lovely stitching and your French holiday sounded idylic.. we went to Australia back in Feb/ march and there was no time to stitch.. but tomorrow we are off to Brixham for a week and I will be stitching as much as possible.
Happy Stitching
