Harmien's Stocking

Although my 'last 2009 post' was written at the end of November I can not close this year off without showing you the beautiful Christmas stocking which Harmien made for me. I love it and will always cherish it. Thank you also for the great Dutch tile cards. They will make me think of the Netherlands when we are once again far away.

Annemarie and Harmien were over yesterday for our final get-together. We had a fun time with loads of talking and yes even stitching. Harmien finished her 'Poinsettia House' which she's not quite pleased with just yet but is actually lovely. Annemarie was diligently working on a marriage sampler which she hopes to have finished by tomorrow as it is a Sinter Klaas gift. That will be a long night of stitching An - better get that coffee pot going. (LOL)

Thank you both for welcoming me in your stitching midst when we arrived here in 2008. I will miss you but know we will keep in touch and hopefully see one another again at some time in the future.

Are you moving? You seem to be saying goodbye?

What a fabulous gift from Harmien! I have seen a couple of her stockings and they are real beauties. I really missed coming to see you one last time. I was just too unwell to manage. I am happy to hear that Annemarie was able to make it. I hope you and your husband have a safe trip back with smooth sailing for all your things literally and figuratively.

Hugs ~
