Hot, hot, hot

Yesterday my quilt friend Hilde came to visit and I had planned a visit to the herb garden in Cromvoirt. We went there by bike, pffff. But the garden and tour were worth the effort. We even could make our own scented calendula ointment!! And we did all of that with temperatures of around 30 Celcius.

And after a cup of herb tea we went home for lunch.
The rest of the day we spent in Den Bosch (with a quick visit to Fran├žoise) and finished it of with a bee at Marleen's. Too hot to hold our needles, but it was the perfect closing of a perfect day.

Happy sewing and keep cool,

Having a 'normal' siggy day again

Bee and bees

This afternoon we heard a lot of noise. And this was the reason:
 Two bunches of bees in the tree!! I called a beekeeper to come and get them. Hopefully he will be able to come tomorrow morning and take them with him to their new home....
Lots of activities inside the house as well because it was my turn to host the bee.
Maybe there is a relation between the two? We will never know.....

Happy sewing,

Soccer or Camelot?

Not a difficult choice for me!! Camelot off course!! Nothing can come between us...
I have been busy sitting on the couch and sewing the 5th block.
Much better than watching soccer for me.

Happy sewing (or watching soccer),

Girls Day Out

Today my friends and I went to the " fair with flair" at the Jacobushoeve in Well. It was very windy and all the stand holders were constantly busy securing their merchandise against the wind.
Here are a few things I bought. At least one thing is quilt-related.....

 Enjoy your weekend,

Brighten up a rainy day

This makes me smile, even on a rainy day. Hope it has the same effect on you :)
