What's in the box?


Yesterday I was going through some boxes and when I opened this one


I immediately wanted to get started again.

stitchery of  my 'what shall I wear' quilt

Do you remember this quilt?

My idea is to make another 'What shall I wear' quilt
but now much different with stitched clothes.
Maybe I can work on it in the sun today!
Now this is going to be a long-term project
so every now and than it'll pas by.

The weather is so lovely, a real spring day!


Nothing better on a springday
than fresh tulips and a new springbird bag!

Spring bird shoulderbag

(in the shop now)

Groetjes and
hopefully you'll have a nice springday too!



  1. That will be just as beautiful as the first quilt! Just gorgeous. Looking forward to seeing it in progress. Send some of that spring our way, please!

  2. Prachtige plaatjes weer! Zowel de veelbelovende quilt uit de mooie doos, als de nieuwe tas.
    Het is heel zonnig hier in Utrecht, zo fijn!
    Geniet ervan,
    liefs van Maaike

  3. Your spring birds bag is absolutely beautiful! I love everything about it. :o)
    And what a sweet surprise to open your box and find your darling stitching. :o) They will be perfect for your next quilt. :o)
    Have a nice day.
    Sincerely, Trish

    Fijne dag!

  5. I love the birds bag! Pretty box, and what lovely embroideries you found inside!
    The tulips are beautiful, what a lovely post!
    Thankyou for sharing all these pretty things

  6. Don't you just love when you open a box and find something old and it seems like something new.

    Oh, how I adore this bag too... Ladies, you are going to be a problem for me and my pocketbook. Love it.

  7. Sweet projects Heleen! We had a wonderful spring day yesterday, and now back to rain. But lots of my plants are starting to pop out of the ground....so exciting!

  8. That quilt (when following the link...)... I am speechless... Now when I know how much work it takes to make a quilt like that, honestly... It is a piece of art and very very beautiful. I am sure your new embroidery version will be just as wonderful.

  9. Ahhh... die stitchery patroontjes... wat liefff!!!!! En die tas is ook weer helemaal geweldig! Wordt weer helemaal vrolijk van jullie blog!
    Groetjes Elly

  10. wat een verrukkullukku quilt was dat. en het nieuwe project wordt dat zeker ook!

  11. I love that bag so much!! Such a cute picture. Your box is very pretty too. I'd love a pretty box collection to store my treasures in. Enjoy your new quilt, it's coming along very nicely already.

  12. Ha sisters!

    Leuk dat jullie ons ook zijn gaan volgen! Ik moet toch echt even kwijt dat de tas met de vogels echt AMAZING is! Geweldig gezellige dingen maken jullie!

  13. De stitcheries zien er erg leuk uit. Ik moet maar even flink door haken aan mijn plaid dan kan ik ook weer andere dingen oppakken. Inspiratie genoeg hier. De tas is ook weer prachtig.

  14. Ik wens je een hele fijne lente-dag met volop zon!
    Mooie doos trouwens! Ben heel benieuwd naar je nieuwe quilt!

  15. I bet it seemed like Christmas when you opened the box. You lucky duck I guess. The bird bag is to die for.Just lovely!


Thank you :)
Groeten, Heleen en Corry
