We also visited Amsterdam on a sunny day. Here's a picture of the four season houses. If you look closely, you can see 'lente' = spring and 'zomer' = summer. These housefronts aren't maybe the best ones found in Amsterdam, but I loved the 'lente' and 'summer' part (I left out 'herfst' and 'winter').
A while ago I won Clare's giveaway at Clare's Craftroom with the number 10. Read the funny story, on how I won this giveaway here. This is what I found in the envelop. The bookmarker on the left is a good one for me, since I read a lot, in several books at a time. And look at the pretty card at the bootom right. It is really beautiful!
And this is what I found inside the present. The buttons on the card are for the gorgeous stitchery! I will make it for my sister Engelina (engel=angel), who does of course collect angels of any kind.
During our vacation I stitched the first block of the Bunny Hill BOM. Behind it you can see the fabrics I bought at my local patchwork shop The Log Cabin and will use for the quilt. I'm not sure yet, how I will make it. I will probably get inspired, once I stitched several of these wonderful blocks.
A while ago I joined the Spring Fling Round Robin-3. Margaret, who organizes this, asked the Round Robinettes and one Lone Red Robin, to make her two youthful 12.5"x12.5" quilt squares, one colored for a boy and the other for a girl. Here's the one I made for the girl. I might even like it better than the one I made for myself, which I am not allowed to show yet.
Go over to Lani's The never ending adventure. She's having a 'green' giveaway with wonderful things! Her blog is so much fun to visit! She always brings a smile to my face and sometimes even makes me laugh out loud. Can you believe that ...
Have a happy and lovely week full of sunshine and laughs!
