Before I went on vacation I received this beautifull halloween exchange from Edgar. I wasn't expecting anything yet as the deadline was the 10th of october. So it was a very nice surprise.
Here I am in Belgium and having the time of my life. Yesterday was a very long drive as trafic around Amsterdam was dramatic, I did an hour over 14 km and well that is a bit long. Till I arrived at the Belgium border I couldn't go harder than 100 km's per hour. Lucky me I had a stop at Ingrid to pick up some lugage from her so that she can ride with Marjon to Westouter tomorrow. I was around 16.00 in Veurne and I have to say it is a beautifull Bed and breakfast. There is even a fireplace in the room. I am sure John and me will also come here someday with the two of us.
Last night I first finished reading the winding ways quilt from Jennifer chiaverini and loved it every page, but I have to say I loved the other books she wrote better. Than I started stitching on block 1 of Journey of a quilter and you can see here a progress pic.
Today I went first into Veurne to see the city and I have to say it is beautifull. Nice old buildings and such. Also there is a fabric store, needed some things to finish a few exchanges and lucky me they had the right ribbon. Than I went in the bookstore and found a new one from Elizabeth George, Careless in red. I already started it while drinking some in a cafe and later with Lunch. Probaly will read some more tonight. I have to say the first pages are already very catching.
