Wat een lief kussentje, met een heel lief zoentje. Als dit het resultaat is van een beetje stof op je machine, komt het wel goed met je.

The Dutch fabric is absolutely gorgeous! I've seen the blue version at your sister's blog! You must tell us where you buy it, just in case we have holydays in Holand...

Your pincushion is so cute! I've never seen any fabric like that in the US. Can you send me some?!?

Oh, this is sewn so beautifully.
You are so gifted with color choices
and your precision is amazing.
I love the fabric you are able to
get. Thanks for sharing. Even your
short blog notes are a blessing to those of us who aspire to be better quilters.

Hi Corry,
Do you know of any dutch patchwork or fabric shops that do mail order. My mother is dutch, already 55 years in New Zealand and I would like to buy some dutch fabric to make her a quilt. Fabrics like you have used in your pin cushions. Please if you have time could you let me know.
Thankyou
Sarah Van Leeuwen (yes I marries an Australian with Dutch parents)
