Back from our holidays

We got back from Holland last night. We had a lovely 2 weeks, and the children really enjoyed themselves. We did get to Amsterdam, and I persuaded my family that I really needed a trip to Den Haan & Wagenmakers for a quilt fix. I got some lovely fabrics there. There is a lovely border print and a selection of reproduction fabrics tied up with a ribbon.

There is another quilt shop, Bird Blocks, right next door Bronnie and I managed to sneak in there too before the menfolk came to pick us up. They had a beautiful quilt on the wall depicting the canal houses of Amsterdam, so I had to get a copy of the pattern as a souvenir.

Unfortunately I completely forgot about the camera in my bag, and so didn't get any photos of the shops to share with you.

I havent been able to get any photos of my purchases yet, but I shall do that asap.

I took some sewing away with me, and managed to get all of the applique blocks I had prepared completed. I don't know how many more of these I'm going to do before I put them together, but I think I'll carry on for a while yet.
