things are going slowly
Don't know why,
they just do.
Here is my Solstice piece ...
but it won't be finished by far on the 21st !
Trying to capture the vibrant sunlight
in a lot of stitches !
Just taking the yellow threads as they are in front of me ...
In the garden everything is green
because of the many rainy days.
Flowers are struggling with the water
that keeps pouring down,
(with some sunshine in between )
(foxgloves and Phlomis)
But some seem not to mind the wet weather ...
like this little toad
(there are many !)
soooooo tiny !!!
Last Friday we were just lucky in Rotterdam :
the rain stopped long enough
to climb the giant (temporary) stairs
that lead up to the roof of a building next to the new Central Station
Ahhhhh ... a pity :
only till tomorrow ...
Looking down at the Station Square
from the top of stairs and the building
The wonderful rooftop with faaaaaaar away,
right in the middle, the "Euromast"
(that one is much higher, so you have an even better view from there ;-) ...)
three towers of an Oil rig and more high buildings in the city center
"Inside" the building
It was fabulous !
And the most fun part was all the people (total strangers)
got talking to each other about their childhood memories.
Because the City Center was destroyed in the beginning of WW II
all of it was build again from scratch.
