Yesterday a day before 5 December we celebrate Sinterklaas feast at our home.
Because all the children (and adolts) don’t believe in the Sint anymore we make “suprices” (pronounce as "sir-preeze-us"). A surprise is a gift consealed in something made by the giver. This can be a gag or something beautiful made. And the giver write a poem to go with the gift. A lot of those poems are teasing ones! We had so much fun!
The surprise I've got was made by my 11 year old niece (Heleens daughter). She once heard Heleen and me talking about a dream we both got, opening a store where we can sell all of our selfmade and vintage products. So she made me a "Dutch Blue" store. Isn't that SWEET!
Do you see my teacozy and my quilts?
And that's me behind the counter!
Another suprise I found this morning on the doormat. The most beautiful and cutest owl I've ever seen! It is mady by Amy from Lucykate crafts. And I was so lucky to won this cute owl at her blog giveaway.
finally to end this suprise post, a basket found at my mothers place. The basket conseals all the pre-cut fabrics for a complete sampler quilt. My mother did the preparations for this quilt years ago but she isn't going to finish it of anymore.
I could'n help myself, I had to start sewing a block! I didn't have anything else to do (lol)!!
I love the colors and fabrics, mom you have a great taste! Maybe I do a block a month or so to get this beauty finished!
