An hour later she came back and her bike was gone! In front of the Courthouse, in broad daylight and even a policecar standing in front of the building. This must have been a very courageous (or stupid??) thief! DD was in tears when she came home, poor child! As she needs a bike to go to school we lent one from the local bikestore for the next days.
Today DD and DH went to look for her lost bike again, you never know, maybe the thief got tired lifting her bike (it was locked) and left it somewhere to pick it up another day. And guess what?? They found the bike, left (still locked) in another street, not far from the Courthouse.
DD hurried home to get the keyes and they took her bike home again! No damage at all, only the cable-lock was gone. The thief managed to get that open and removed it and tried to remove some other things too, like the little red and green ribbons DD had secured on her bike so she could recognize it from a distance. DD was so happy (and so are her parents, as it also saves a lot of money LOL).
On to stitch-related items. I am doing a lovely Christmas design for a dear stitching friend and I have to pay attention to it most of my stitching time. Otherwise I fear I'm able to finish it in time.
Fridaynight I was able to join Becky's SAT and I can show some progress on Chatelaine's Holland Springtime.
But I had a little time in the evenings to stitch on Call of the Raven.
Page 25 almost done (I prefer stitching from right to left)
I also have been busy quilting on a Christmas panel. I sandwitched it and the blocks are quilted by machine. Now I am quilting by hand around the different figures.
