Viva la Mexico

The ballet group in which my daughter dances took part in an exchange with Mexico. But my daughter, the youngest and smallest of the group, and one of the boys decided last year that they did not wanted to join. Of course this summer both of them were quite dissapointed when they saw the pictures and film and heart the stories. Nevertheless they went to the conclusion event today in order to know what to expect when they will take part in two years time.

Happy to have a rest on a sunny sunday

After our recrative holidays it was quite a shock to start anew with everyday life: job for the parents, school for the children and also their numerous sports activities as well as my honorary posts. That left neither time nor power for writing in me. Also there were a lot of activities at the weekends, like the artisan fair at Aachen two weeks ago, about which I will write during the next days. Even for embroidering there was little time.

Happiness is to dance with friends until dawn at a birthday party

Birthday parties are wonderful, not only for one’s own birthday but also those of friends and family. Such a party means good food, meeting with old and new friends, good talks, perhaps even some dancing. Presents are of course also an issue! And for me giving gifts is as precious as receiving them myself.

This weekend I had the pleasure of giving presents to three friends celebrating their birthdays. The first present was decorated with the piano zipper bag by Urban Threads with a zipper charm by RockQueen. Though this desgin is without a lining I managed to enhance it with a lining thanks to my experience with the zipper bags by Individual Pieces and RockQueen as well as the „Go To“ button of my machine. Originally I had intended that design for myself but have done it now thrice for other people. Last year for a friend’s voucher for concert and for my son’s classmate as a christmas present. Now I a wondering if I ever will have time to do it for myself.

The second jubilant whished for some funds to a journey. But a simple voucher card seemed not adequat. Therefore I sewed a sheath for 2 passports, credit cards, funds and tickets to put the money into. This is not only pretty but also helpful for a journey. I used cork fabric and snapppap which I decorated with two little embroidery designs by RockQueen.

The third present was adorned with a personal sign for a carnival lover (design by RockQueen).

All celebrants were very happy with the presents and I with them.
