It is a lovely sunny morning again here. I love this time of year when you can just pick up your bag and go somewhere without a coat or loads of suncream! I miss having a balcony now, there is a 'garden' at my new house but then I have to take a chair outside along with a drink, my keys and a book or quiltproject but if I wanted to quilt I need some sort of table to put my pincushion, needles, thread and everything else on... In my old house we had a balcony with some old fauteuils and a balcony table! Perfect! But I might move again soon, or we might move again soon because bf and I are going to look at an apartment tomorrow. Very exciting!

I haven't quilted much with Easter. Watched Jesus Christ Superstar just like my mom and of course I sang all the songs along way to loud too (bf played a pc game and put on a headphone) while painting some eastereggs. I think no one is to old to paint eggs with Easter and they looked very nice on the breakfast table I made in the morning. The only thing my bf didn't understand was that I cooked two more eggs, he wanted to eat my easter eggs! They were way to pretty of course and are still on display in the kitchen!! :-D

We also went to the Keukenhof ( and were not the only ones with that bright idea... lots of Germans and French people and very few Dutch :-P We heard on the news that we were among 50.000 other visitors but it was really nice. It is just a huge garden with flowers everywhere. I bought some tulips for my mom because these are her favorite flowers and we came across 3 bromelias which were grown by bf's uncle!

p.s. de tulp op het plaatje is dus jouw tulp mam :P een parkiet tulp...

Ik zal de naam vergeten. "parkiet"is enigszins traumatisch. Ik vind de tulpen echt práchtig! Hopelijk komen ze volgend voorjaar weer goed op in de tuin! Tot zondag!
