In the Netherlands we don't do really X-mas gifts. Although it's changing, but in our family we more have a tradition of celebrating Sinterklaas. So all our X-mas gifts came from our friends overseas. Rob and I really had a fun time at breakfast unwrapping gifts. There was my gift from the SSCS 2011, Jo made me this beautifull sewing bag, I adore it, and it contains my apple-corn project now. THANK YOU SO MUCH. And then lovely gifts from Seattle, quilt things and salmon "lekker". The little basket is made by Marne, when I'm in Seattle she's going to teach me how to make it. And the little quilt, that's very special to us. It's made from costume fabrics from Spakenburg. We (Elaine, Marne, Rob, Paco and I) visited the museum in june together. So this is a lovely memory of our time together.
