Hi all!

Finally some time to post some pics here! It's a busy time these last few days before summer-vacation. Tomorrow is the last schoolday for DS! And than we have 6 weeks without the alarm ringing in the morning! Whoohoo!

It's been a while since my last post and I have a lot to show you.
First of all, my Teatime mailart for the Stitchedmailart-group. I've made this teacozy for Marie-Antoinette, and filled it with tea-goodies. She told me she really likes it!

On the Dutch "Borduurhoekje"-group we had a Summer-exchange. We could make each other anything, as long it had something to do with Summer. So I made my friend Jacqueline this wallhanging.

And Amarins made me this great set of towel and washcloth, along with some wonderful goodies.

Yesterday was my mother's 60st Birthday. We had a great day in Kalenberg, Weerribben ("Dutch Venice"). I had no idea what I should give her, untill she was in our house last Saturday. She totally fell in love with my lavender-miniquilt on my toilet! So I had to make her something with lavender (she also is crazy about the Provence, France). I have a lot of lavender and rosemary in my garden, and made this wreath of it. Than I made some lavendersachets from linen and olive-fabric and attached them to the wreath. It smells great! And my mother was very happy with it.

My parents recently came home from a long stay at my brothers camping in France, and bought me some french magazines. Yippee! They are gorgeous, don't you think?
And when I finally got home yesterday-evening I found this RAK from Maggee in my mailbox! I've sent Maggee my Aida-fabric I had in my stash and never gonna use. And to thank me for it, she bought me some charts from my wishlist. I'm so happy with it! Especially the green "Birdhouse Row". I think that's going to be a WIP very soon ;)
Thank you for reading this long post! I hope I didn't forgot anything...
Hugs, Simone
