Windmills





Look what I made in one evening, a doll quilt! I love to sew small quilts. They go together quickly and helps you learn what fabrics work together. I wanted to make a quilt that was not so scrappy and busy. Now that the top is finished I think it is too neat, too controlled, not so my style! I think it will look better after it is hand quilted and washed and dried in the dryer. I'm hoping that the handquilting and the dryer will give the antique look I love.

Jacob's Ladder

It has been a long time since I posted.

Gré Koopman, the shopowner of De Sampler(where I work and teach), my boss passed away. She had been fighting for cancer for a short year. Till the last moment she was so positive and tried to go to the shop everyday she could. I will miss her.

Our summerbreak is over. The kids are going back to school next week. I had no luck this summer. I'm dealing for three weeks with a terrible infection which even brought me to hospital for a few days. I'm feeling better now so time for me to sew again :-)

I started a Jacob's ladder. Love the antique feel of it. And funny thing is that I have been listening a lot to Jakob Dylan lately. I love his music. His band is called The Wallflowers and yes he is the son of Bob Dylan. (the Wallflowers One Headlight)



I'm also very happy to tell you that one of my quilts is published in the summer special of Quiltmania. I love the picture of my quilt. The photographer of Quiltmania did a great job!
