A girls trip to London and new bag,

Just finished this new bag,

Bag, fisherman

I'm pleased with the result, and love the warmth of the colors and look of the bag.

tas, visser 005

The checked fabric and the wide band are also doing well together, don't you think?


Yes, my daughter and me are going to Londen for a few days in October, just the two of us, the girls in the house!


It was her idea to ask this as a gift for het 14th birthday.. she's saving money for this trip to do a lot of shopping. (me too of course)

We booked our flight but have to book our hotel or BB.

If any of you have great London ideas for us,
it can be anything, a nice BB or hotel, lovely shops, vintage shops, places to lunch, etc....

We'll love it and be greatful!

This is it for now... groetjes,

Bear and bag,

Remember our cat, Bear (Beer)?

playing kitten

Except that he has grown this summer, he is still very naughty and funny and we all love our Bear!

yummie roses

He does however has a strange thing when there are flowers on the table.....
First he looks around... and when no one is watching.....


..he takes very carefully, leaf by leaf, small bites of the Roses
Have you ever seen this before?

Here is another flower,

Bag, great horse

I made this flower for my new messengerbag

Bag, great horse

This is the first autumn bag and I'm working on another one..

See you soon,

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!

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,
