A visit to London


On Thursday, Ger, Laura, Thijme and I went to London to celebrate Ger's 50th birthday (o: The first afternoon we were there, we were lucky to have sun and no rain.

Op donderdag zijn Ger, Laura, Thijme en ik naar London gegaan om de 50e verjaardag van Ger te vieren. De eerste middag hadden we zon en geen regen!

Enkele indrukken





 We were surprised to see this!
Hierover waren we erg verrast (o:

 Beautiful flower beds can be seen everywhere in London!
Prachtige bloemen waren overal in Londen te bewonderen!

 Our 'guide' Eddie, a family friend, brought us here, especially for me (o: I got all excited!!!
Onze 'gids' Eddie, een familievriend heeft een speciale afslag genomen, om mij dit te kunnen laten zien. Jippie!!!


 My brand! Even though I sew on a Janome most of the time.
Mijn merk! Ook al naai ik meestal op een Janome.

On Monday, when we were home again, I went to a wool shop with my sister in Aachen. They had some cute buttons there. Even this giraffe. I made my sister a cover for her new phone. You can probably guess, what her favorite animal is. Last year I also made her a quilt with giraffes, but I forgot to take a picture. Since then, my sister has been sending me one ...

Maandag, toen we weer thuis waren, ben ik met mijn zus naar Aken geweest, naar een wolzaak. Daar hadden ze ook schattige en mooie knopen. Zelfs een giraffe. Dit hoesje heb ik voor het nieuwe mobieltje van mijn zus gemaakt. Je kunt vast raden, wat haar lievelingsdier is. Vorig jaar heb ik ook een giraffe quilt voor haar gemaakt, maar was vergeten er een foto van te maken. Sindsdien wacht ik op de foto die mijn zus mij zou sturen ... 



Each day has its own set of thoughts, words and deeds.
Live in tune.

Weren't you lucky to see some sun; there hasn't been much of that recently. But rain or shine the changing of the guards still goes ahead.
