It's been almost two weeks!

It's been almost two weeks since my last blogpost. I have been terrible busy with (mostly) very important things like visiting quiltfriends, taking care of computeritems (yes, my computer is reapaired, I have a new (secondhand) screen and I am online again) and visiting quiltshops all over the country for fun and stashbuilding.
Speaking about quilting: there are five blocks finished of Baltimore Bliss.

Of course I have been stitching too, Foregone is growing slowly, and Call of the Raven does also.

DH and I went to Breda, four hours by train from here. We had a lovely, sunny day and met one of my quiltfriends, Chrissie.

Last Thursday another quiltfriend and I went to visit Tineke. We had a wonderful time showing and admiring stitching and quiltwork. In fact, we were so busy talking, showing, looking, that we forgot to take pictures!

As I am supposed to start work again tomorrow I thought I might as well take advantage of the last days of summer, so yesterday I went to Deventer and Zutphen. Both places have a lovely quiltshop and in Zutphen I also met Jacqueline, we had a great day!

Last month Kaffe Fassett visited Deventer for teaching about patchwork and giving soms lectures. As you can see there's a lovely quilt in his style hanging outside the Quiltshop. I couldn't help myself buying these lovely FQ's.

Now, unfortunately, fun is over, tomorrow real life is starting again. There's a job to be done but I hardly can wait until next summer!

Lovely photos - we were in Zutphen on August 18th!! We took a 'boot' from Dieren to Zutphen, then switched to the train up to Apeldoorn, then on a 'stoomtrein' to Eerbeek again :)

The quilt blocks are beautiful. The colors are so soft, yet they are still in the red/green pallet of Baltimore Quilts.
