I don't want to make my blog into a 'cat blog' .. but our kitten 'bear' discovered a new area in the house...

My sewing room!!

Perhaps he has creative aspirations...
I'll let you know...
until now he makes a lot of rubbish from all ribbons and bands!

Meanwhile I almost finished my apron for the apron swap!

Apron swap

I think it is turnig out nice... and I hope Sarah is going to like it.

For now

Blogging again

Hello again,
We had a two week vacation by the sea. It was great!
But now it's time to start catching up with blogging and I'm far behind reading all your lovely blogs, and please forgive me for not answering your comments.


We took our cat 'Bear' allong with us and he did great!
He is growing real fast and is being naughty and cute at the same time.


Today I finally have a little time to work on the apron swap!


Here is a little fabric peek....
My lovely swappartner is the hostess Sarah from Red Gingham

This is it for today,
I leave you with some fresh tulips and hope to be back with you in a few days!

We are having a few cold spring days here.
But the postman brought us,
Corry and me this heartwarming gift,


made for each of us this sweet embroidered heart.
And also a beautiful printed linnen from her country,


Dear Karina thank you so much!

Bought these new fabrics for another little Dutch quilt.


Although I better finish this one first!


Wish you all a lovely warm day,

A new spring month,


May, so a new page on the 'Dutch costume' calander.

May on the calander

And time to show the new tree picture!

The tree in may

can you believe the changes that happened these last few weeks!
The tree is full with fresh new leaves. The differences are enormous!


With the kids in school we have been making surprises for mothersday.
This year we made these cute cup cakes!
