A few weeks ago a had a meeting with Randy D, my quilting friend from California. After a lunch rue des Abbesses, we went to my home and pulled out the latest ufo's and fabrics. I adore this kind of reunions, i'm fascinated by other quilter's points of view on technics, whatever. Randy comes about twice a year to Paris with her husband,lucky Randy, wish i could go to the US only once more .....who knows,.........
I do the most intricated and tricky ones first, i tell you, one some ones i worked several days.
QuiltBook one helps me greatly to choose the fabrics.
All the blocks are shown in this book.
While in the Netherlands after the sudden death of my beloved sister, i digged into family history with her daughters, finding 2 photo albums.The first is my great aunt Hendrina, her husband went to the US to found a family with better future, but he became so homesick that he returned back.
The second one was my grandma as a newly wed, she was the one who taught me sewing and knitting, she was adorable and always found time for me as we all lived in the same house.
She died when i was sixteen.
Thank you for all the messages, on the blog or mail , letters and phonecalls.
We felt surrounded with love, her daughters gave her a beautiful funeral and promised us we haven't lost a home in Holland......
Take care you all, warm greeting from Will V
