Visit from overseas and, of course, stitching

Last week my friends Marne and Elaine from Seattle visited Groningen. They have been in the Netherlands for over a month now, time to come to the most northern part! We spent some lovely days together, in spite of the rain. It was nice to guide them around in my own town. Unfortunately I didn't bring my camera, but Marne and Elaine did. So pictures are on Marne's blog, here and here.

Saturday we drove to the most northern part of the Netherlands, Noord Kaap Noord. There was not much to see, no tourists (did they all blow away?) only a few sheep. And us.

We also went to Dokkum, the place were Bonifatius was murdered, to give a small lecture on Dutch history ;)

Time for some lunch!

And into the rain again.

On the stitching front there is an update on Call of the Raven. Another page finished, 40 pages done, 29 to go!

And I'm still beading Holland Springtime.

HS and CotR are both looking smashing! I love them both! I'm wanting to eventually get both of them, but I am waiting since I have a lot of HAEDs already printed up and ready to kit. Glad you enjoyed the visit. It's always fun to get together with friends!

Giovanna said...

Glad you had a nice time - and your stitching is awesome as always!

Kathy said...

A visit with stitching friends is oh so special. And when they come from the other side of the world! How wonderful that you got to spend that time together.

Both your wips are gorgeous. I can't wait to see them finished.

Wat een genot om vriendinnen van zover over te krijgen.
Jullie hebben het leuk gehad, ondanks het typische Hollandse weer.
Dat heeft de pret echt niet bedorven.
Joke, wat ben je toch al ver met je handwerk projecten, ze worden super mooi.
Liefs Chrissie ennuhhh breng je Woensdag wel zon mee, ik hoop je zonder jas te mogen begroeten.
