Ying-Yang finished

The ying-yang sampler is finished for some days, yet no time to show it. Next week is class day for the patchwork and then I'll try to find a fabric in the shop that matches to make a cushion. I'm very happy with it.
Another lovely cat siggie received. I always wonder why so many stitchers have cats.
The easter holidays are over, next monday back to school for the kids and back to work for me. We (me and DD) had a shopping week. Clothes for the kids, a new trampoline as the old one finally gave up. Especially Stein does a lot of jumping on it, all his anger and frustrations are forced out there. I saw a lovely hammock with a wooden stand that let me dream of warm summernights. And I ordered one! In summer, when it's too warm in the house, I love to sleep outside. I have a big umbrella on the terras and I put a camp bed under it (should it start to rain). I hope to sleep in my hammock this year!
I did a bit of spring cleaning too, the weather was nice and it's lovely to see through clean windows and sit in a bright house. Of course the cats always find a bit of fluff in a hidden corner to show afterwards :-)
Tomorrow is competition day in the crossbow guild. I'm not concentrated as I should lately, so the last shootings I was the red lantern (what we say for the last). Tomorrow won't be better I guess as today I won't be able to go to the workout. But I always have a lot to fun, they call me the jester in our guild. Next we have the annual dish for St George, after who the guild is named.

Hello Edith,

Your ying-yang turned out beautifully! Love the cats in it and no, I don't know why many stitchers and quilters have a cat. Maybe we like cozy things and since cats like that too ... ;) But you're right: it's often the combination you see on blogs, I wondered about it too.
I hope you will be able to sleep outside a lot!

Have a nice, sunny weekend & groetjes,

Ohhh, what a great finish! It's a beautiful piece and you finished it in no time. I'm already very curious to see the piece finish-finished.
