Three finishes and a short trip

Thanks to my job I have several vacations in a year. And I enjoy them all! I always think I am able to finish more than usual (I have some extra time, so that thought might be right LOL). Evenso this week. I have three finishes to show.
As a RAK I stitched a little Halloween item and finished it as a small pillow. The receiver let me know she loves it, so I can show it here.
 This week I also was able to finish my Red Wine Shawl. It is knitted in fair isle technique and it was quite a challenging project, not only because of the steek you have to cut, but also because it was long time ago since I did some Fair Isle knitting. But I am very happy with the result. It has become a very wearable, warm shawl that can I can wear instead of a coat when temperatures outside get a little bit higher!
DH and I went away for a few days. This time we stayed at a hotel in Weert, province of Limburg, were we had some lovely days. Sightseeing at Weert, Den Bosch, Roermond and Hasselt (Belgium). At the end of this post I'll add some pictures. 
On the road I had a  little knitting project, finished it today. Frangiflutti, or, as I call her : Waves.
Some pictures of our trip, as promised at the beginning of this post.
