Back home!

As you can tell, we are back home again! We enjoyed a wonderful holiday in France (Marie, I winked at the Eiffel Tower for you!) I have pictures of our holidays on my blog (Flickr) and among them beautiful pictures of Tapestries. Just read my blog, if you wish.
Thursdays I joined in the SAL, so I can show progress on both HAEDS. And, especially for Marie, as she is the only French girl on the blog (if I'm right) I had a picture taken of DD, me and La Tour Eiffel. I even stitched a little one in Vibrant Vista.

And to compensate for all the Americans on this blog, I show you the French Liberty Statue :), located in Paris, in a parc. DH was determined to find it, but when we asked a local from Paris about it, he told us there was not, certainly not, a Liberty Statue in the parc. The only one was in the Seine (there really is!) but no sir, not in the parc! We walked on, turned the corner and there she was!!

On to my stitching, Vibrant Vista (with a small tower in it, that reminds me of the Eiffel Tower)

and Call of the Raven.

I have been looking through all your updates and wow, your progress is great! Right now I don't have the time to comment on all the updates, so here's a big hurray to you all!

Oh Joke, Joke, Joke...!!!

Welcome home !
You can not imagine how glad I am...
Your pictures and your words found a place directly in my heart...
Many many times, I was thinking of you during your holiday in France. And every time I saw a car from Netherlands, I said "It's Joke, it's Joke !"...!!
All my thoughts were with you, and it's a very good news that you enjoyed your trip, because France was lucky to meet a person like you.

Congratulations for your stitching work ! You even found the time for stitching !! And the result, as always, looks so wonderful.

Thank you for sharing this all Joke, you're so precious...

I wish you a great week !!
