Springtime!


You'll never guess what happened to me this week. it was a nice spring day and I was shopping.. trying to buy some nice, new, spring/summer clothes and I couldn't find anything that was both nice and in my size. Then I found myself in the sportsdepartment of a big warehouse, I went home and suddenly I found myself, wearing my new sport pants and skates, in the park across the street! Oh my god!
And since then I have been skating every day, except one work day and yesterday it was raining.. There is a big park just across the street, a part of it are now gardens you can rent or buy and the rest of the park is very quiet and the only people you run into are runners or skaters or someone walking their dog. I posted a satellitepicture and the red line marks the park. I am very proud of myself and when it is summer I will be very slim and everybody will be jealous, hahaha.

And I dug up an old quiltproject. Or actually, my first quiltingproject.. I patchworked a lot but never finished anything so that it could be quilted and I claimed I didn't like quilting at all. Then I had to do it because I wanted to finish my sampler and send it to an exhibition. Our neighbour and quiltingfriend then gave me quiltingthread and a ca. 40x40 cm little 'quilt' with the quiltpattern already drawn so I could practice my skills. I came halfway and then decided to start on my 'real' quilt. This week I have been working on this again and tried to make a picture of it to put on my blog which was absolutely impossible because it is just one big square of red fabric and red quiltingthread... Ill try again when it is finished!

Holland always seems greener than where I am from... There grass is a deeper, lusher green that what we ever have here....
Lucky you Lotte to have the park right across the street! Very nice! You go girl with those skates! 8-)
I look forward to seeing this "first" quilt of yours sometime...
Happy stitchings!

Haha, op een idee gebracht door mijn doos met een "oudje"? Voelt ook weer een beetje als nieuw he.
Wat dapper dat je elke dag gaat skaten. Zien we het resultaat nog deze zomer?
