Candy exchange

More then a week I haven't stitched anything because I had troubles with my neck and shoulder, but last night I tryed and made some stitches on the 3th ornament of LHN.

I promised to show a picture of the thing I made for the candy exchange.
I made this for Iris; Candy from Lizzie Kate
(B24 Candy Sweet tooth)

On the bottom I made a candy from fabric and attached it on the pillow,
on the back I used the same fabric as the candy.

Cupcake pillow and candy exchange

On sunday we went to Mayke and Niels (my son and his girlfriend) to celebrate her birthday.
I gave her the cupcake pillow and she realy liked it !
The design is posted in the magazine cross stitch gold number 63

They had also some wonderful news to share:
they are going to be married on 11-11-'11 (11-11-2011) at AM 11.00


My daughter Lindy and her boyfriend Jacco also came this weekend to stay and Lindy bake some cupcakes to give to Mayke and they where YUMMIE !!!


Lindy is always in for funny things and she dressed up to support the Dutch ice skater Sven Kramer who you can see on the Olympic games in Vancouver next week.

I send my present for the candy exchange last friday but it isn't arrived, so I can't show any pictures of it. But I recieved today my candy exchange, made by Lintine.

She put some nice beads on top for some sprinkling
