It's been two weeks already....

We went on vacation last week and I couldn't find the time to blog before we left. So now I have a lot to show. There are three finishes of LHN Ornaments 2010. Two blocks of My Tweets done, a start on block two of the village of HRH. And a precious gift to show. And for those of you who like to see pictures of our vacation, I'll put some at the end of this post.

About a week ago I visited my friend Christine. We met each other on the internet and found out we get along very well. Last year I went to Breda, where she lives, and this summer we wanted to meet again. She had a surprise for me, a cute little bear (Christine makes beautiful bears!). It's one of a couple, the other half lives at Christine's place. I decided to name her Filia (Greek for friendship).

On our holiday trip we went to Brugge (Belgium).
As I like to stitch when we are on the road I prepared the last two blocks of My Tweets. I managed to do one on our way to Brugge, the other one on our way home. Block six ...

...and seven

Three of the LHN ornaments are done. He's a Flake:

Frosty Flakes:

Joy to the World:

When I put them together into a quilt they will look something like this.

At the time I had to decide what I would bring as a stitching project I thought it might be time to finish some blocks of the Village of Haswk Run Hollow. Block one was done quite some time ago, so I started to stitch block two. So far, so good.

Brugge has very nice little streets, canals, and of course, bridges.

During our stay at Brugge we also visited Gent and Brussel.

Courthouse Brussel

Next week DH and I go on another short trip, to Limburg, but this time just the two of us.

Great vacation pics. Brugge is such a beautiful city with a lot of history.
Love also all your projects. Your quilted blocks looks just stunning. What beautiful color choices. Had them enlarged to be able to drool a bit more.
Your LHN pieces look gorgeous too, so does your Village of Hawk Run Hollow.

Ik ben nog nooit in Brugge geweest, maar zie wel dat het het bezoeken waard is.
Jullie hebben genoten en ook nog eens prachtig weer zo te zien.
Blok 7 ook al klaar van de Tweets en al je borduurtjes van de LHN, dat je dat fijne werk in de auto kunt doen, knap hoor.
Heel erg veel plezier van Valkenburg en je kent het motto.
Geniet met Piet!!!
Liefs Chrissie XXXX
