It's our last weekend in zeeland and it's raining outside our caravan.
But inside its cozy and warm.
We had a lovely week with gorgeous weather.
And despite my best efforts ...I could not avoid a little sunburn!
I think its due to the combination of wind and sun.
And there's always wind in Zeeland.
Last week we visited the weekly market in Middelburg.
Here a picture of The Lange Jan, a churchtower.

we listen to streetmusic.


and I digged out piles of fabric.....

to find these lovely pieces.

this one comes from another store.
I love the windmills and the red, white gingham.

And I got me the new country living to read and browse through.

new magazines to read

So I'll enjoy our last weekend here
before I have to go back to normal live on Monday.
Have a Happy weekend too and hope to see you back next week!

It was a bit hazy when I took these pictures this morning .

And ofcourse I didn't leave home without a little something to do while I'm on a break.

The weather forcast for this week is not bad.
So I probably will build next to a stash of grannies a healthy tan as well!

Free as a bird in June...

June already.....
 it's hard to believe we are almost half way through 2010!!


It still is a bit quiet here on my blog, sorry for that...
Just hope you haven't forgotten me by now!


Update on last post...I was still thinking abc and numbers for the new baby quilt
when I spotted this gorgeous fabric.
With Heleen I was in this lovely quiltstore in Zoutelande.
And there they were...cute little birds.

I immediatly had a vision on how to use these cuties in the baby quilt.
I had the perfect pattern made up in my mind.
This pattern didn't included abc or numbers, so they have to wait for a future project.
I bought the fabric with the larger birds (above) and this pretty stash (below).

I did cut out all the birds and only used the blue ones for the quilt.

The pastel colored checker fabric is also the fabric that's used as liner for the baby crib.

The finished top is on the hoop and ready to quilt.
Hope I'll be back soon to show you the result!
