A windmill and again ... a house ;)

This week I was able to finish part seven of Holland Springtime. A windmill standing in a field. A quite common view in our country. It didn't take too long stitching it and I love the result.

Besides that I have been stitching on LHN, Home of a Needleworker Too. Did I tell you I had to frog almost everything? This is how it looks after a week stitching. The rank on the left side is stitched again, the house is done, even the first words appear.

Last thursday I had to travel to Zwolle, to attend a workshop for work (LOL). I raised early and because I had lots of time so I decided to go to Deventer to visit a lovely quiltshop. This is what I bought, I 'm going to use it for a new quilt, which I want to start in July.

Next week is an almost stitchless week. Tuesday and Wednesday I'm visiting Amsterdam with a bunch of 16-year-olds. I expect to come home exhausted Thursday!

These pieces are so pretty. The windmill piece will be amazing when it is done. Lucky you that you had time to shop in the quiltshops. Have fun with the 16 year olds

Your Holland Springtime is so spectacular! I just love the colors! Glad you're stitching away on the LHN piece as opposed to frogging -- such a bummer! Love the charm packs!! I want to get some too! Have fun with the 16 year olds!

Wow - your wndmill is just stunning!! I just finished stitching the "Home of a Needleworker" piece about a month ago. The frogs hit me this week-end too. No fun to have to re-stitch, but at least you're on the right track now. Enjoy the teens! :)
