Wandelen en borduren

Het was weekend, dus tijd om te lekker wandelen (de foto's zijn uit de Groene Weelde, waar je weer bijna struikelde over alle bordjes, maar als je die wist te omzeilen, kon je er toch aangenaam wandelen) en te borduren.

I just had to buy these nice 'billedrammer', for sale at the Tiger shop in Haarlem.

Lots of stitching and a little bit of knitting

Let me first show you the little bit of knitting that I've done recently; these are socks that I knitted for Jessica.

Then there has been a lot of stitching these past few months, and here is what I finished.

This is 'Forest River' (RTO Art. EH348). I received this kit as a Sinterklaas present last year.

Next, this is RICO design kit 79909.54.00. I bought this kit during our summer vacation in Heidelberg and I've stitched it there as well.

This is 'Spakenburg' by Thea Gouverneur. This kit was a birthday present that Carolien gave me. I made some slight alterations, like I left out one of the boats and I did the eyes a little different.

The pattern for this squirrel came from the book Mollie Makes - Woodland Friends. I added an extra colour plus the acorn.

And finally, this is 'Man's Best Friend' by Magie Hollingworth. I made this cushion cover as a present for my mom's 90th birthday. It was so much fun to make this cushion and to have all these dogs look at you while stitching. I bought this kit from The Tapestry Shop during a previous edition of the Handwerkbeurs.

De hand van de maakster

Yesterday I visited the Zuiderzeemuseum in Enkhuizen to see the 'Hand van de maakster' ('Hand of the maker') exhibition, which was very nice. I even managed to avoid most of the rain showers!
