It's almost time for the next Lekprikkers meeting and I still haven't made a report of the last one, but first I want to show you something of my own work!
I made the Eureka quilt this far. Log cabin quilts are very beautiful, but now I know that I'm not really fond of making them myself. What a job, all those identical blocks.. I'm going to make another round of log cabin blocks, then I fill the corners and I will finish with a border! But for now, the Eureka quilt lies on hold.
For my birthday last October, I was given a pattern of Lynette Anderson with a matching pair of scissors. Yeah, I finished it!
Voor Kerst kreeg ik een e-reader. Ik heb er zelf een cover voor gemaakt (patroon van internet). Vind je 'm niet netjes?
At Christmas I received an e-reader. I myself made a cover for it (pattern of the Internet). Very nicely made, don't you think?
And what do you think of this cute heart wreath? It wasn't finished in time for Valentines day, but that didn't matter. The wreath will be a few weeks on the table with a good scented candle in the middle.
|Verkleden voor het carnaval in Oeteldonk|
In January I told you that our girls pretty much simultaneously left home. The first few weeks they came home in the weekends. In February we even had 5 kids at home during the weekends because 3 friends of Esther from Australia (Queensland) visited the Netherlands! We fed them well with Dutch food (kale stew and hodgepodge) before they went to the Carnival in Oeteldonk. One does not experience snow that often in Australia, so the fresh snow the day after Carnival was totally awesome!
It was SUPER to meet Esther's Aussie-friends
Niet alleen mijn dochters doen goed hun best op de universiteit en hogeschool, ook mijn man doet het goed op de TU Delft. Hij is gepromoveerd! Ik ben hartstikke trots!
Not just my daughters do their best at the university and at college, my husband is also doing well at Delft University of Technology. He has his PhD! I am so very proud!
En ik, nou, ik ga dinsdag ook naar les, naar de workshop 'Experiment I' van Wil Fritsma. Dat zal ook vast wel goed gaan !
And I, well, Tuesday I also am having lessons, I join in the workshop "Experiment I" by Will Fritsma. That will probably go well too !
