First of all: Thank you!
I cannot believe the encouragement I got from you through your comments, emails and birthday wishes. I am a lucky girl to have such good friends like you. I was overwhelmed by your cheering me on and believing that even though it was a nutty thing I was doing, that it would be worth it in the end! And you were right!!!
The birthday party was a success and I did not lose my cool or transform into
Godzilla-mama, but actually enjoyed myself to no end. The boys were over the moon and the food... WOW!
Thank you, guys... I mean it. Thank you for being there for me, so I could make beautiful memories for us as a Family.
the hush of approval... You know they are enjoying their food when they are sooo quiet...
On Sunday we went into the mountains to unwind and see Grandmother's roses before they were gone.
We have been feeling the heat this past week and the roses are quickly reaching their end.
The boys got to enjoy their new wheels, and I got to spend some time stitching and taking pictures.
The party favours: The Boys chose the giant sunflower seeds themselves and 'helped' me to put them together. We even got to plant them with Grandma's help...
And when all was said and done, I had to get back to stitching...
It's therapy, it's celebration, it's my way to unwind... and besides I have two weeks worth of Klosjes to report: 37!
This is another family heirloom: My mother-in-law remembers this table cloth being woven at home by her grandmother. It's all vegetable dyed and the colours are so very vibrant.
I will share the rest of the roses next wednesday.
Thank you for sharing this whole wonderful mad adventure with me, and now I hope to go and enjoy what you all have been up to. I am also really excited to get back into the sewing room and finishing some projects that have been patiently waiting their turn.
