So nice to be here

Hoi... I am Astrid. Living in the Netherlands. Mother of two sons. (25 and 23) Husband Ger is the best...... and we are also parents of a great Dane named Falco.... this dog is 7,5 years old. My stitching carriere began 25 years ago with the birth of my son. 4 years ago I met a virus called HAED. I infected my father with the same virus. He has now accomplished 4 large pieces.
I like the large projects very much. I like Marchetti, Christensen, Kinuko Y craft. and more....
O and very important .... Sheila Wolk.....
I show some Wips. I rotate my projects when I finish a page.



Madonna after a large amount of frogging...on the road again.

Fire Fly from Brigit Ashwood..... very nice..

And the Zodia from Marchetti.... currently working at it the page is almost done so next week an update.

Isn't it the best virus? ;-))

Great to see that you also gave this virus to your father. You don't see a lot of men stitching, and you know what, I don't know why, because I don't see it as something typical female to enjoy actually.

I hope you have both fun with it. Looking forward to seeing you work.
