Happy queensday,

Today I did a litlle thrifting and found
a flower apron and a postcard from 1945

Apron, card and bookmark 

This card fits precisely in this time of year.
Tomorrow is Queensday,
and may 5 is liberationday.
 The day we celebrate the end of world war 2.

Vintage postcard  
(And how importend it is to have freedom of thought and opinion.)

And I found these stitchery's. I love the litlle bookmark.

Now I'm of preparing for tomorrow.
So to you all happy,

Groetjes Heleen

It's in the genes

Today I visited our dear niece,


She's a great knitter
 great in crochet! (like Corry) 


She's chochetting a great blanket! She's also a great painter
and loves fresh flowers like we do.
Guess it's in the genes..

Something came between,

Hallo everyone,
You probably think I'm working on this Dutch fabric quilt...

work in progress

Well I was.
But something came between.

From the Pays Bas,
Nederland, Dutch country.
I found an embroidery of the Dutch lions

Super Dutch bag

And they just match perfectly with the typical
Dutch postbag I found a while ago.

And now this SuperDutch bag is finished
there's space in my head to work on the quilt again.
