Winter in the Netherlands

At first I want to thank you all for your nice comments! I don't say it often, but I read them all and they keep me going! When I come home from work I like to sit down for a while and stitch. DD is sitting next to me and together we watch a movie or comedie on tv. This week I have been working on HOHRH during that hour. Windows are added to the house and some birds are appearing at the bottom.



In the evening I always spend an hour or so at the computer, answering mail, visiting groups and reading blogs. After that I go to the livingroom again and do some stitching again. I always work on something I'm in the mood for and this week I was very tired, so I took something easy. That means Vibrant Vista. No special stitches, no backstitches.



Yesterday evening I joined Becky's SAT with Holland Springtime and I managed to stitch the other tulip ornaments in the corner. I also finished the yellow border.



We noticed it already some time ago, leaves have been fallen and the days are shortening, but today its getting colder. It wasn't freezing cold, but a cold wind blew , the sun was shining and the sky was clear blue. I love this kind of weather! DH and I went for a walk in the fields and at the picture you can see a windmill, typical for the landscape around my hometown.

Your stitching is so beautiful.Vibrant Vista is looking great and I love Holland Springtime such beautiful colours. I love the change in seasons and spring and autumn are my favourite seasons. I love seeing the pic of your landscape.

Nice to see the progress on your WIPs! Last night we had our first snowfall here in the flat part of northern Italy, it looks very different from that clear Dutch landscape.

Hi Joke

Thank you for your input on the Travelling Stitcher blog, its lovely to see where everyone is from... and some very lovely stitching on your blog. And I saw a Chatelaine design, I have Convent Herbal Garden all kitted up but I am afraid to start it!
