Than we drove south. Around Nancy we went to put in some gas in the car and than the fun started. I got a bit confused about all the pumps . Than a guy (backpacker) came to us and I just hoped he wasn't going to say anything difficult in France, but he said something in dutch and told me I had to get another pump. So I did and my husband already said, maybe he wants a ride and while my DH was getting gas he asked he good get a ride together with a lady friend of his. They were doing a race with 29 other couples from Belgium to get as fast as possible to Malaunce (close to Orange and the Mont Ventoux), and the winner would get a little trip somewhere in the world. So we said we would go to Orange and that they could ride with us. They were with this organisation . We were a day earlier. So we decided to bring them to their camping and than find ourself a hotel or Chambre D'hotes. We had a fast drive and when just before Orange there was a trafficjam, because a dutchman and his mobilehome where all over the highway we said we had phoned hime to do that so they could win off course we didn't do that. Nico and Tessa were the first ones to arrive, even a lot of the organisation weren't arrived yet. We got a drink, made a pic and went to find a chambre. We had some problems with that as it was very hard to find something, but finally we found a nice and neat place, just 3,5 km outside of Malaunce. Than we unloaded the car and found a sweater that didn't belong to us and as they were backpackers we decided to bring it to them as you don't take a lot with you when you have to pack everything in a backpack. So we climbed in the car again and Nico was very happy we brought his sweater. They decided we could eat with them. Well now I have to explain a little bit. When you go to a camping in the netherland with a group normally there isn't a cook with the organization, but with this organization they took a cook with them (even a few) and they prepared some great diner. We got as a starter couscous with vegatbles, smoked salmon and dressing and it was delicious. Than we got Rosti with some stuffed meat and fruitsauce and that was delicious too. We got home late that night and had a nice sleep in a very soft bed with one matrass. One time my DH turned and I did too around the same time and I almost fell out of bed as I jumped very high above the bed. As you

But now on to the gifts that were received. I also saw that Zalita has received her gift, but still has to pic it up at her parents.
First Carol recieved her PIF gift. I decided to use this creme cat fabric as soon as I decided which box to send to her. As she is a catlover I thought it would be appreciated a lot. By the way I am asked a lot to give a little kartonnage workshop and would be glad to do that, but first I have to do some writing for that. Keep an eye on my sight and I will let you know as soon as I have it.

Than I went to SBEBB and found there that my ABC exchange was also received, that one went to Myrna I have stitched the chart that was with the linenfloss I received this winter from someone. I just didn't like the colors. So I first went looking for a nice fabric for the finishing and I found a nice strawberry fabric and I choose my colors by that fabric. On my sewingclass I found a nice ribbon for it. Well now I am really gone. There is still time to sign up for the drawing.
Hope to finish page 5 of Little red riding hood tonight and than I will stitch my trip around the world exchange.
