Vacations are over

We came home last Friday and we really enjoyed our vacation together, DH and I. We went to Valkenburg, and from there we visited several places like Maastricht, Luik, Aken, Spa. It was great, after months of cold rainy weather we finally gor some sun! Like usual, I added some pictures at the end of this post, for those who are interested.

On to quilting. I finished block 8 of My Tweets this week and I also took some overview pictures.

Today I was busy sewing on my Jane Austen quilt number two, Blonde Jane, as a friend called her. The middel part is done now and I hope I'll find the time to finish the whole quilttop before the end of this week. Next week duty calls and from then on I don't have that much time left for quilting as I do now. Working on this quilt brings a little sun in my life!

Do you notice the little tool as a ring on my finger? A friend made it for made and it's quite convenient!

And here are the promised pictures of our vacation.

View of the Ardennes

Spa, a lovely village!

Vaals, where the borders of Belgium, Germany and The Netherlands come together

Aachen, funny fountain

Dinner at Hoogeveen and after that we drove straight home!

Ziet er allemaal geweldig uit! Maar ben helemaal verliefd op je blauwe Tweets en blonde Jane! :)
Volgens mij ken ik die Chinees!

Wat een prachtige kleuren. Ze springen d'er echt uit. Lijkt net of hij licht geeft.
Zo fijn dat je een toffe vakantie hebt gehad. Gelukkig heb jij meer zon gehad dan wij :-)

Lovely photos - my middle son went to Valkenberg on a school trip, and loved it.
