Again, My Tweets and a holiday

Last week DH and I went on a short trip, we spent some lovely days together in a hotel near Zutphen. As DH loves me and I love my quilting, he suggested I made a program to visit some quiltshops. So on our way to the hotel we made a stop at Wapenveld, to visit Klazien's Kreatie, I was welcomed with a laugh and I bought a great knot of wool to knit a shawl. She even taught me how!

After that we went to Zutphen, where Petra Prins is located. While DH visited the church (which was closed) I dreamt about quilts ...

The days were filled with trips to Deventer, where Quiltshop 100 Roses welcomed me, with a cozy walk in Oldenzaal, where I visited Lohuis-Tijhuis.

Friday our ways seperated. DH dropped me off at the station in Zutphen and drove to Doorn, to visit Huis Doorn, purchased in 1919 by Wilhelm II, the last German Emperor, as his residence-in-exile (1920-1941) after World War I.

I went to Zwolle, to meet some friends and visit the Handwerkbeurs together. We had a great day, talking, laughing, looking, buying fabrics, woollies and threads.

And in the evening my Red Delicious waited for me in our hotelroom ;)

Of course I have some finishes to show you. My Tweets, block two:

Another ornament of LHN, All is Calm.

And, just before we went on our trip, I finished another flower for My Garden.

Zutphen is just wonderful, I went there last November and visited PPrins too, fabulous shop.

Wat ben jij een ontzettende bofkont met die Piet van jou.
Wat heerlijk dat hij je naar alle quiltwinkels van Nederland heeft gebracht.
Verveeld hebben jullie je niet, wat heb je veel kunnen handwerken.
Ik hoop dat jullie goed "bijgetankt" kunnen hebben.
Knuffels Chrissie

Your stitching is lovely - we love Zutphen - usually take a river trip there on a barge from Dieren, then go up to Apeldoorn on the train. Can't wait to be there again in August :)
