It was great!

Everything was perfect on vacation...beautiful weather, amazing scenery, great nature, wonderful food and wine...
After only one day of leasuring around to rest after the long drive in the car, it was time to go sightseeing and fully play the role as tourist.
In our holiday home we found a bunch of leaflets with things you could do and see in the area so we daily we picked one out randomly and were on our way. Every day was a surprise where we would end up and it was quite adventurous. We visited a waterfall, hiked  a trail through the mountains, visited a local brewery (I really don't like beer at all), attended a local party the firebrigade organized, followed a trail barefoot through the woods (so much fun!), ate a few times at the pub where all the locals went to dinner, saw great craftmanship like someone blowing glass and cutting wood...
It was funny how holiday activity brings so much rest and peace. I felt totally distressed and full of energy the whole two weeks.
In the evenings we enjoyed the view onto the moutains and see the sun go down. No television, hardly any phonecalls (except to check if everything and everybody was doing well back home), no work, no was PERFECT!
Ofcourse I couldn't help myself from making some miniatures, I brought along my needle felting stuff and having all the time in the world I was able to make a few little animals.
One day I made a mouse and was so echanted by it I sort of couldn't stop making those until I had a whole family. I gave a few away and it's a funny thought: we're back at home but  some of the mice stayed behind. I hope they have the same great time we had!

Sleepy mice snuggled up in a pod...

Not only mice appeared from my needle! They were soon joined by bears, cats and a dog!

It was a great vacation but it's always nice to be back. There's no place like home!
I'm off to catch up reading your blogs and see what you've been up to, talk to you soon.

Summer holiday

We're all going on a summer holiday.
No more working for a week or two.
Fun and laughter on a summer holiday.
No more worries for me or you.
For a week or two.


I'm packing because I'll be gone for a week or two, enjoying a summer break. I've decided to take along some reading material and my needle felting stuff. I'm hoping for sunshine, great nature and some rest. Keep your fingers crossed for me the weather will be nice and I'll see you back soon!
