Yes, yes yes yes I am happy


The dutch are through the semifinals of the world cup soccer. LOL but that is not why I am really happy. The part I am the most happy about is that Little red riding hood is finished. I started it 1 august 2006 and now it is finished. Isn't it beautifull.
Today I started a new one and it is ...... drumroll...... St nick in his study.

What a beautiful piece of work! How will you finish it - is it a hanging? I think *I* would take a break before starting the next piece! Good luck with St. Nick (I voted for that one!)

Waw, een meesterwerk! Gefeliciteerd hoor, wat een geduld om die kleine steekjes te maken. Maar het resultaat is ook buitengewoon mooi.

Simone said...

Gefeliciteerd Judith! Geweldig hoor! Hij is echt prachtig... En wat dapper om meteen weer aan een nieuwe te beginnen. St Nick is ook één van mijn favorietjes. Ik heb momenteel Merlin weer op de standaard staan, maar met dit warme weer, komt er niet veel van.

Oh, Judith, Little Red Riding Hood is absolutely astounding! So beautiful. And your stitching is so well done I'm very impressed. I think working with all the red colors would have made me nuts after a while. Good for you, Judith! It's quite an achievement.

Thanks,
