On Thursday Heleen, mom and me are going on a two weeks vacation and during that time I won´t be able to do any posting on this blog. So I´m having a kind of forced break from blogging . But at the end of November I'll be back with (hopefully) lots of new things to show and tell.
Oo, and do you remember this nine patch quilt, it's a gift made by Heleen, mom and me?


It´s almost finished…and ready to be packed to travel. Next time I´ll show a picture of the finished quilt when it has reached its final destination. For now I leave you with these three lovely angels.


They are an embroidered illustration made by Belinda Downes from the book "silent night". I hope besides singing they do a bit of guarduing as wel, 'I do hate flying'! But then our destination is to far to walk so there is no choise, I'll try to be relaxed about it. I'm of now have to do some packing.... I'll be back end of November, until then!

Take care,

This post I want to share some interesting and fun links I came across the www lately. First I thought it was time for a new blog banner.

dutch blue

I made this banner with the photo editing site Picnik. It's an easy and fun program to use, even for me, a knownothing on computers. Although I must say, since I became a blogger I've spent more and more time behind one and learned new stuff here and there.
Did you ever heard of "favicons"? Well I didn't but now I have one too. It's that little icon in the url bar. I've changed the orange blogger icon for one I made with the help of this site. After your photo is turned into a tiny icon you get a code wich you copy and past on to the html page of your blog. And that's the most "scary" part! I'm always afraid to go to that page...what if I accidentally changed some of the code and there isn't a blog visible anymore, don't want to think about that thought!

One thing I certainly do want to think about are these gorgeous red cashmere fingerless gloves from 'the purl bee'. You can find the pattern on their site....if only I had more time on my hands!!

And how about this cute little mouse house & family from pottery barn kids! Wish we had a pottery barn store over here.

Another store where beautiful wishlist items easily can be found is; Clothkits

I especially adore this skirt with the papercut pattern on. And the little red dress would be so lovely for Luca. Ooh and before I go I've to show you these four beauties from Modern Nursery

These Jess Brown tea dyed dolls are so adorable.. one of them belongs on my wishlist for sure! My birthday isn't before next year and Santaclaus and Sinterklaas are not in town I better stop dreaming and drag myself away from this computer and go do the grocery shopping otherwise the husband find empty pots and pans (again) when he comes home!
