Dutch,

Dutch sisters
 fabric quilt.
 Dutch painter Vermeer's "Melkmeisje"
(milkmaid) for a new bag.
In our Dutch mother's garden,
 With lots of flowers,
 These poppy flowers are my favorite!
 Can you see the humblebee... ??
It's his favorite flower too.
Groetjes,

Et voila..

here it is....
petite granny square blanket no2.
A little bit of information about this project:
This multi colored blanket contains 56 crocheted circel in squares
I used (Schachenmayr Nomotto Tapisserlegarn) for the circles.
For the squares I used a soft grey blended yarn, "cinque alto" from Lana Grossa
this yarn cotains 20% alpaca for a super soft touch
The scallop border is done in light grey
It really was a lot of fun to crochet this sweet little blanket
off to my next project...
Have a lovely week

Weekend in Zeeland

We had a gorgeous weekend with lots of sunshine.
Perfect weather for a bike ride
along the coastline from Walcheren, Zeeland.
In Westkapelle we saw these ladies in traditional clothing 
Look at the beautiful crochet shawls 
 One of the ladies brought her sock knitting project along

There were also men on the beach
I'm not sure what kept them so busy...

Still they make a pretty picture

The advantage of a rainy day,

The advantage of a rainy day,
 It is wonderful to spend time to

For a new quilt..
