Ivan en Sanne zijn toch wel een beetje aan het stressen voor hun aanstaande huwelijk. Er moet ineens heel wat geregeld worden waar ze nog niet zo bij stilgestaan hadden. Wel heel leuk.
Ger en ik zijn nog naar de film geweest in Rotterdam. A Christmas Carol. In 3D.
Dus dan zit je heel de film met een dikke bril op je neus. Het was een hele leuke film.
Jim carrey speelt de hoofdrol, scrooge.
After one week of surging out the colors I manige to do something. Her dress / coat is very red. We'll see how it will look further. I think I finish this page on Christmas.
Sanne and Ivan are getting a little bit stress for their upcoming wedding. There is suddenly a lot to do. The happy couple :))
Ger and I have been to the cinema in Rotterdam. A Christmas Carol. In 3D. So then you're are the entire movie with glasses on your nose. It was a very nice movie. Jim Carrey plays the lead role, Scrooge.

My father was here on visit and had take his work with him to make a picture. Crystal of Enchantment. The top row of pages is finished. He has made it over 47 days with an average of 950 stitches a day. Now I have to say, my father is already long at home from work. And a whole lot of time to stitch. He's still doing it with pleasure. He started yesterday on the second row. He will then for certainly finished the second row for Christmas.

Falco is very very happy with his new bed. His old bed was to take with us in the car. And was not fit for him to sleep in. And he is always in the mood for a hugh. Ger fits with him in this bed to hugh him and talk with him about his dayley activities. In this bed he can sleep better. He is already 8 years old. And he snore loud.
De Astronomer heeft nu een stukje gordijnen. leuk om het zo te zien groeien.
The Astronomer has drapes. Very nice to see it grow.

This week I spent time at two pieces. The mystery project and the Astronomer. Of the Astronomer I show you the picture. It is not a large page. But it is a few stitches away, done. You can see very much detail. I find it inspiring to work at.

I pressed housekeeping money back (joke) and I treated myself with a motorcycle. Our youngest son announced he was going to drive a bike again. And then in the family the blood flows harder. It was all slow going..... But then again I have the feling back again. I had my yellow Yamaha sold to our eldest son four years ago. And now I have a Yamaha Diversion 600 back. A red color this time. A good touring bike. I will ride many miles on it.........

En maandagavond werd Falco niet goed. Het begon met klagelijk kreunen als hij opstond. Dinsdagmorgen kon hij niet meer opstaan en schreeuwde het uit. Wij konden gelijk bij de dierenarts komen. Die dacht aan een verkramping van spieren in zijn rug. Hij heeft artrose van zijn stuit, dit zou er een gevolg van kunnen zijn. Hij kreeg een spuit die na 48 uur helemaal er voor moest zorgen dat hij weer zonder pijn kon lopen. Maar dat gebeurde niet. wat er overbleef was een krijsende hond die niet meer kon lopen. Woensdagmiddag was de maat vol en mocht ik antibiotica gaan halen. Dat begon donderdagmiddag te helpen. heel langzaam dreef de pijn weg. Het bleek een onsteking in zijn wevels te zijn. Gunst, we dachten dat we hem al kwijt waren. Maar op dit momnet gaat het weer wonderlijk goed. voor het eerst wil hij weer spelen met zijn bal. Ik ben wel benieuwd wat hij doet als de kuur afgelopen is maandag. Nou maar niet te ver vooruitlopen.
Ikzelf ben al aan mijn derde griep van dit jaar bezig. Het gaat wel lekker.
Maar het borduren gaat zo zijn gangetje tussen alle zieken door. Ik heb van de Madonna van Christensen een klein stukje gedaan. Ook aan mijn Mystrie project een stukje en ik heb vanddag nog een nieuwe gekocht waar ik ook aan ga beginnen. Werk genoeg dus.
Ik zal een klein stukje van de sluier oplichten. over het mystrie project.
Een andere benaming is : Dog of the King in Yellow
What a nasty week when we look back. Ger his mother is back again from the hospital after a weekend observation. With some additional support for medication should she now be back on track. She must also undergo surgery next week to one eye. And Mondayevening Falco went sick. He started with moning when he get up. Tuesday morning he could not get up and cried it out. We could get right to the vet. They thought of a cramping of muscles in his back. He has osteoarthritis of his encounters, this could be a result of that. He got a syringe ,after 48 hours all had to make sure he could walk again without pain. But it did not. What remained was a screaming dog who could not walk. Wednesday was the last straw and I could go get antibiotics. It began Thursday afternoon to help. slowly drove the pain away. It was an inflammation in his wevels. Grace, we thought we had lost him. For the first time he would again play with his ball. I'm curious what he does when the course ends Monday. Well not too far ahead.
I myself am already on my third flu this year now. It isnt nice.
But stitching between the sick is whit smaal steps. I have the Madonna of Christensen, made a little bit. Also to my Mystrie project a bit and I've bought new one this afternoon which I'm starting to. So plenty of work. I will lift a small tip of the mystrie project.
Another name is: Dog Of The King in Yellow

Falco is al aardig aan zijn oude dag begonnen. Hij heeft veel last van zijn arttrose in zijn stuit. ik vind het wel heel erg zielig. Hij is echter nog niet zo ver dat zijn leed erger is dan het leven zelf dus we kabbelen nog maar even verder met hem door. Al zal de winter hem geen goed doen als het erg koud word.
From 8 to August 30 is really a long time ago. phew ...... But, warm weather, and my mil was in hospital quite suddenly makes updates slower than planned. I have finished the Firefly. That was because in the end there was much the same color. Not very interesting, but alas, he was already almost finished. I continue with the Madonna of Christensen. I wanted to go further with her. I must at least finish before Christmas the middle part of this trheesome. I also start a mystery piece, I just bought. That is a lot the same color in the begining. And in December to create a Santa Boot. busy, busy, busy. My winter is going fast.
Falco has been started at his old days. He has many problems with his arttrose in his lower back. I find it very sad. He is not so far that his suffering is worse than life itself so we have only just trickling on to him. All the winter will do him no good when its very cold.

The whole week was very hot and stuffy. I've only done some in the evenings. But there is another page finished. Three pages to go. But it will get done in August I think. The bottom is not so inspiring, and I had to set myself at the table to work. I am also starting at a good book. Stieg Larsson, Millennium. I can hardly let go. Very exciting. What I did not know that this month the movie comes out. That I should really go see.

The week goes fast. Already somewhat stitched in the evenings. I am started on the last bottom row. It is reasonably fast. There are many stitches of the same color. I know, not so difficult. I have put my senses to finish it in August. I believe that it is possible.
Zondag waren we bij onze zoon en schoondochter, Ivan en Sanne op visite. Zijn koikarpers doen het goed in de vijver. Zoals altijd staat Falco overal met zijn dikke neus bovenop. Sanne en ik waren wat plantjes in de grond aan het zetten en Falco moest toch echt wel kijken wat we aan het doen waren. Veronderstel dat je het kan eten .......
Sunday we were at the house of our son and DIL, Ivan and Sanne. His koicarp do well in the pond. Falco is always with his thick nose on top of things. Sanne and I had some plants in the ground, and Falco had to see really what we were doing. Suppose that you can eat it.......

Bah, I was very sick this past week. That has an advantage, I could stitch more than usually. I have finished the page from the first row and went to the second row. Falco find it awfully cool that the lady boss hangs around him every day. However, scary to, all that coffin, but there you are a Great Dane for. It has been very badly whether on a night. Then you do not sit downstairs with your children, but with your dog which is scared for thunder storm. And a Great Dane is not appropriate to go under the sofa. Therefore you must accompany him to make sure he does not do strange things. When the storm lied down we could also went to bed. Well, animals

My dad cald me, to ask if i want to make a picture, before he is going to start at the thirt row of pages.
YESSSS of course I want to see the work...... I like it very much !!!

In fact I must go further to an another project. But this is much fun to go along. When I was just at HEAD I did finish ordinary 1 piece of work and then to another one to start. But a rotation of more pieces is also nice and very alternating. But sometimes I do not succeed to do so and then I want the result of 1 piece of work. This one is such a piece. The Firefly van Brigit Ashwood is nice to work at. Till I got the fibres to rotate back this is the one.

Falco had something, but we couldn’t place it. Therefore we made four our Great Dane an appointment at the veterinary surgeon. Since Falco is so stressed during examination we proposed to bring him first under narcoses to be able to do a proper examination. The result was nevertheless surprisingly. He appears to have Artrose (Wild grow of the bones) in its first three tailbones, resulting in pain during shitting. Also the last three backbone’s are affected. All in all a pity for him. Only possible medication is use of painkillers. He had also a hard thing on his left leg and it was decided to remove that as well. It is a considerable large cut and he wears now a nice bandage with prints. He was laying there anyhow so a blood check-up and teething control was now piece of cake. But narcosis has a big impact on him. During the night we have been out for every three hours. He had it difficult. Walks around as a drunk. And it is clear that he sometimes do not know where he is. We surround him with care. Because he nevertheless weights 75 kilos and if he bumps against something the impact is huge. Fortunately we have we a large garden for its needs. After a day with no food he has lost already considerable weight. He is slack and sleeps fortunately much. What a worry’s….
