50th post

Well today is the day....Today a little milestone, my 50th post! If you would asked me a year ago what a blog was, I would say; "excuse me...a what"? It was purly a coincidence that I discovered this amazing world of blogging! And I never expected how much fun it could be! I've met some wonderful new friends and recieved the most warm and supportive comments.
Thank you, thank you'll for that.

secret gift

So....for celebrate my 50th post I have wrapped a little present for a lucky winner. Just leave a comment and I'll draw out a winner next tuesday.

p.s. I would also like to invite the non comment readers to feel free to join in too!

I finish this post with a wonderful book I want to share.
It's published in 2003, but I just recently found it!
The ISBN number on the back is: 2-84831-004-9

book; Marie Claire idées 'l'appliqué

It's full with the most gorgeous quilts and quilting projects.

Hi there, here is another happy reader of your blog.

I am enjoying your fresh colours and very 'dutch' projects.

It's fun to have readers all around the world - I'm in Australia.

Hi Corrie,
I always read your blog, its a little glimpse of life in Holland. I lived there for 10 months, 30 years ago. My parents emigrated from Zaandam to New Zealand 55 years ago. One day I will be back. Keep blogging.
