It's been a busy week, but full of nice things.
I started working on my BackTack softie since the package is supposed to be in America before the 10th of June. I hope to be sending it on Monday.
The colour I chose to go with the black and white is yellow and I'm happy with the result so far.
I'm working on a cushion and doll for Amber's birthday, too. Also planning her party, thinking about the dress I want to make and all the other things that need organising for a birthday.
---I had some lovely mail this week.
My sister- & brother-in-law gave me a year's subscription to a knitting magazine for my birthday and this week the first issue arrived.
It has some wonderful things in it, like this cute doll.
And I love this teacosy:
And would really like to crochet a cushion like this:
First I have to learn how to knit though! But with my Stitch 'n Bitch by my side that shouldn't be a problem...
This morning I had another fantastic package but I think I'll save that for the next post... I don't want to bore you with too many photos!
---I signed my contract on Tuesday, so it's official now :))
I have an introduction-day on Friday and my first proper day of work is on Saturday. I'm going to be trained in Breda which is in the south of The Netherlands. It's going to be a busy time, but I'm still really happy about everything that's happening.
Amber is staying with oma at the moment, since she is off school (again!). I really think that Simon is missing her, so yesterday they had an essential brother-sister chat. Aaaaawww....
Well, back to the sewing machine before Simon wakes up!
