Commenter is working???

Well it's interesting..but this blogger is now letting me comment. Hopefully it's back on track. I have been so busy but things are looking good now in my new apartment.
My BFF Kathy has helped me hang things and i like how it looks. I'm fairly comfortable and getting used to living alone again. after 12 years it's different but fine!I'm back to stitching and have 2 finishes!


China Blue





And this cute little wonky lighthouse for Kathy.

See you all again soon .
Stitch with happy fingers.

Beautiful finishes!

The lighthouse is perfect for Kathy, in fact she's who I though of even before I say that it was for her.

Hi Beatrice,

Gosh, that China Blue is simply
gorgeous!! Both the design and
the wonderful colors that compl
-iment each other so well. Will
you frame this??

As soon as I saw your picture of
the lighthouse finish I thought
to myself "I'll bet she stitched
that one for Kathy". Ha! Then
I read your comment under it and
sure enough....

Once the pictures are up on the
walls you know that you're home!
Happy nesting Beatrice!

I loved both the "Tea" books
myself. There is suppose to
be a third book in this series
but so far no sign of it.
There isn't even a hint of it
on the author's web site. Very
frustrating.

Cheers!

It was so good to see you this weekend! I've missed all you ladies and wish we could get together more often.
That is the cutest lighthouse! Wherever did you find the pattern?

Courtney said...

Hello Beatrice,

I am so glad to read that you are feeling comfortable in your new home and that it feels good.
Your finishes are gorgeous! And what a funny lighthouse for Kathy, I can almost hear her laugh when she sees it ... (Silly me, I don't even know what her voice sounds like).
Thank you for your comment on my blog, I missed you! :)
Big hugs, Carolien

P.S. Do you and your mother have special things you miss from Holland? I am preparing a little box and could put in some sadly missed things, I would be glad to do so! Stroopwafels, Arnhemse meisjes, I have no idea ... but please tell! ;)

The finishes look great..I'd like to know where the lighthouse came from too...My cousin who keeps sending me cross stitch books and leaflets particularly likes lighthouses and I would like to send some patterns to her!

Feeling comfortable effects our whole being. I am glad you are doing well in your new place. It is setting your stitching energy on because you have two beautiful new finishes.
