i wanted to paint, at least the ceiling before going to the coast, but i woke up one morning with a horrible backpain.
Thought ok, who cares, i'll wait a couple of days.
Then i discovered something really nasty: damp and dirt on a wall of the wardrobe and lots of garments had to be washed.
The damage is not in our appartment but in the building next door, what makes things even more complicated.
Also a lot of paperwork ahead, what i hate more than anything else.
I've spend 3 days one washing and sorting out, the smelly odour has nearly gone and as we go by the end of the week we leave things behind for a while.
The big white box contains the coats , intended for movings, a great solution for a couple of weeks.
The little quilt is made from leftovers of a big top, plaids and stripes from workingmen's shirts , soft feeling, but sturdy in the same time.
The leftovers where hidden in a little plastic bag and i sead oh, remnants, better throw it away.
But then i saw the little star, and see, 2 hours later: a little simple , unpretentious dollbed quilt.
The misery in the wardrobe also showed the battingremnants, and i sawed it together in a big batting for a bedquilt, waste not want not.
It measures 19.5 by 21 inches.
Have a great weekend you all quilters of the whole world and remember: quilting keeps our minds together....
Hope also that you enjoy the pic of the other dutch quilt, the one from Pennsylvania, finished and quilted.
Will in sunny Paris
