Catching up .......

........ it feels like the last months were kind of crazy. I was very quiet on my blog, but not quiet at work. Our whole departement moved to a new location in the centre of The Hague, you can imagine all those people and all the stuff takes lots of preparation and organization. But this weekend the last people moved on. The old building is closed, and I have lots of quilt plans and ideas. But first catching up the last weeks..........

Sandsculptures in Garderen............ do you remember 'Mijnheer de Uil' (Mr.Owl), my favorite when I was a little kid. The 'Daily Fable" or "De fabeltjeskrant" all about the animals in "grote dierenbos". It ended always with: Oogjes dicht en snaveltjes toe.

 The theme of the sandsculptures this year was the '50s, '60s and '70s.
Still open till the beginning of october.

Yolande en Jan-Arie
 Rember my trip last year to Vermont and New Hampshire? The most beautiful B&B (Waitsfield), with lots of quilts and a sofa made from english paper piecing. They came to the Netherlands for a holiday so we spend a day together visiting Spakenburg and Elburg. It was so good so see them again.

Ending the day with dinner in our summerhouse.
 In Mai it wasn't only working, we also spend a few days along the Mosel. Walking and cycling through the winefield on the banks of the river. Even Mies managed to do a 5 km walk.

 And then we had a family gathering with all the nieces and nephews. Very fun, lovely weather to have dinner outside.

 Some fun with my friend Yolande in the Japanese garden. She just bought an e-bike, so I picked her up in Leiden, we had lots of cycling fun in The Hague.

I love the Antique Market on sunday at the Lange Voorhout.
