An Inspirated weekend in Dalfsen

We planned it for several months. Visiting Dieuwke's aunt in Dalfsen and finally we did go. Unfortunetaly Willemijn couldn't join us, totally unexpected she had to work. She really was fed up (de balen). I can imagine!!! And we really missed her. PHOTOS. Dieuwke's aunt Joke really has a lovely home. She too is a quilter, but she also is a stylist . So as we would say in the Netherlands her house is a "plaatje" (lovely home). In every corner is something to see, a lot of their furniture is home-made or bought in second-hand shops, and refurnished. They (Marco and Joke) are very good in DIY. And don't you think their parrots Koko and Pukkie are lovely.

Of course we did some shopping during the day, a quiltshop that's really interesting, if you like folkoristic fabrics is Stegeman. You also can buy second-hand traditional clothings items here.

The evening we spend quilting and talking in her wintergarden, with the woodburner and candles burning.

Oh so lovely. Looks like you had a marvelous time. Too bad that Willemijn had to face work while you were off playing. Poor girl!
