Monday, Tuesday.

Every year at the end of April we have the fair here. I used to love it when I was a kid. Did you?
Here just a little impression of what we saw during our short walk. Usually around this time of year the weather is a lot better and definitely warmer. Now  it was too cold to stay longer.
The photo of the big wheel in the dark I made last night from our window.

Friday, Saturday

This week we have been out for a couple of days and this is what I saw.
Fences, blooms , reflections and a beautiful  old French pink car.

We also visited two museums in a little old village called Spakenburg  . In one museum there were over 200 quilts shown. All very beautiful. I am going to show some photo’s from there soon on my other blog
Spakenburg is one of the few places in the Netherlands where some women still wear local traditional clothes. Will show photo’s of those later.

Here is my entry for today.

Pink Saturday.

Last Sunday it was my birthday. We had a wonderful day with family and friends visiting us. I got some lovely presents. My husband gave me a new camera and some beautiful quilting fabric and our children brought me quilting books.  I will show those on my other blog one of these days. I have a give away over there and you can find the link here on the side. >>>
I want to show you some bouquets of flowers that I received from  friends. All so gorgeous. Lucky me.

Yes, a give–away and a special one because my birthday is this Sunday and I will be 75. No kidding .

The other reason is my 5 years of blogging and most important, I started a new blog. This one is more about my crafts.

It is called :” My life, quilting and stitching again” and here is the link:

If you want to participate in the drawing go to my new blog and become a follower. There are also photo’s of the different gifts you can choose from. Put  a link on your blog and please tell me what you would like. OK ?

Monday, Tuesday.


Finally we had some nice sunny weather today. Good for a walk and taking some photo’s. There was not much color yet but what I saw was enough to cheer me up.

My husband  gave me a new camera for my 75th birthday next Sunday already so I was  happy I could use it today.

Alphabe Thursday.

This week we work on the letter T for Ms Matlock’s class. As we are desperately waiting for Spring to come I am showing you lots of Tulips. My favorite flowers.
 Tulips say Spring so here are some beautiful ones.
The first photo’s are taken in the greenhouses in the Keukenhof in March and the second ones are from outdoors but  taken in April of another year.
