Back again

Hello everyone,

Thank you all for visiting and giving me sweet comments while I was away.
It’s been a while…. More than a month!

We had a great time traveling and camping on the French and Spanish Atlantic coast. Spending a lot of time at the beach,

surfing son

where the kids enjoyed their selves with the surf and skim boards. We enjoyed the nature,

fish food

the food (lots of fish) and the great wines!

And although we are back for a few days now, I can’t seem to get behind the computer. There is a lot of catching up, reading blogs, to do.
My plan was to do some quilting while traveling….. well the only time I had a needle in my hand was to sew a lost button on my daughters trousers.
But now it’s time to get my mind on the summer swap!

summer swap fabrics

I was in Middelburg today and bought two lovely rose fabrics. I think they will match with a little rose embroidery just fine!
I have one more week before the kids and me have to get back to school again, so that will give me the perfect time to make the little swap quilt (and to blog).

So have a great day and see you soon!

Heee Heleen! Leuk dat je er ook weer bij bent. Nu natuurlijk niet te snel aan de slag, geniet nog even van het vakantie gevoel. Heerlijk dat je nog niet naar school hoeft. Wij zijn deze week weer begonnen. Mijn dochter gaat aankomende week weer naar school. En dan gaan we weer uitkijken naar de herfstvakantie. Want dat vinden wij het fijnst; vakantie!
Prachtige combi die stofjes, ben weer heel benieuwd wat je daar weer van gaat maken. Maar rustig aan hè?!

Welcome back from vacation, seems like most people are getting back this week. I loved our summer on the French coast back in 2003, even though it was a heat wave then. I too have get busy on my Summer swap. Groetjes

Hi, via Etsy ontdekte ik je site: wat leuk! Wat een creativiteit en een bron van inspiratie!
Ik kom hier zeker nog eens kijken ;)

Welkom terug! Wat vliegt een maand he. En ik vind het heel geruststellend om te horen dat je in je zomervakantie niet hebt gequild :-) Lijk je toch iets minder op superwoman :=)
Maar nu dus wel weer aan het werk want we willen die nieuwe quilt wel zien, de stofjes zijn veelbelovend.
