Thursday we prepared our little trip to my parents, they're living in the east part of the Netherlands. First we went along Agnes from Minewoodquilting, Marne is a customer for years, so it was really fun to meet her, and look around in her little shop at home, she has a lot of dutch fabrics. From there we drove to the next quiltshop: Atelier Bep in Doesburg. It's a lovely shop so we took some time to have a look around.
On friday we went to Munster to the Westfalenstoffe together with my parents. Westfalenstoffe has a beautiful collection, and it was so nice to see all the fabrics in series. And Munster is really worthwile visiting!!! Lovely shops, old-town centre.
After Munster we went to the Castle of Bad Bentheim, at the moment there is an exposition in The Hague / Mauritshuis about Jacob van Ruysdael, he made several pictures of the Castle. Although we didn't recgonize everything he painted, well maybe he changed some parts.
And today (saturday), meeting with some members (me, Marne, Jacqueline, Simone, Joke and Bianca) of the Crazy Exchange Group. We all came to Simone and had a lovely time outside in her garden, with talking, laughing, showing and lots of eating. Everybody took something for lunch, "potluck". It was supposed to be a quilt/embroidery bee but we were much too busy with other things. So I didn't even do one stitch.
