"In Holland staat een huis." (In Holland there's a house)

We have this nice old kids song, "In Holland staat een huis"... In Holland there is a home...
Now I made this house...

"In Holland staat een house"

I think my Dutch fabric quiltje needs a 'house' pillow...
hmmm just an idea... hope it wil turn out...
If it does you'll notice....

Have a good week,

What a darling little house. I wish I could hear your little song. My grandma used to sing me dutch songs. Fond memories.

How cute! It will turn out I am sure and the quilt is just adorable it will go with. You have been very busy. Sorry I did not get back to you yet, but yes, I have a recipe for tiramisu similar to yours but make it very simply now in a small portion or we eat too much...lol! I have not been getting around as I have been busy with hospitals. Not fun and I hear news this week for which I have my fingers crossed it will not be bad.

Hugs en groetjes ~

Katy said...

what an adorable little house! And your Dutch fabrics quilt is inspiring me to cut into my own Dutch fabrics and make something similar...if I can bear to take scissors to them!

Echt een hollands huis met vrolijke kleurtjes :)
Zeg, je quiltje is prachtig geworden! Ik kan me goed voorstellen dat je behoorlijk zenuwachtig was om het in de was te steken... maar inderdaad: geen verschil te bespeuren. Zeker dat je niet dezelfde foto hebt geplaatst? (knipoog)

Hello, Heleen -
I saw your blog listed on my quilting friend Em's list of favorites. Great job on the Sampler patch quiltje. I always wash my own quilts before I use them... but I usually don't wash the ones I give to other people... I like the slightly "antique" or friendly-used look better than the "brand new" look of unwashed quilts.

The cross-stich pillow will be nice with the quilt.

Nicole said...

Your blog is adorable, and I love your new quilt, the fabrics you used are so fun!

Hi Heleen,

I just found your blog and fell in love with your quilts. The fabric is amazing, I love the colours and I am going to try to find the fabric where I live but might end up having to order it on line. Your counted cross pillow turned out perfect. I also do counted cross. I will be adding you to my blog favorites.
Have a great day,
Elizabeth
