St Nick

Today the tour de france takes a little bit of our route. We also biked from Aouste to Alixan, but than the other way around. It was part for us of a 93 km day from Hauterivers to Aouste and a tough one.
I wanted to show a pic of St Nick. This one is from before the weekend, I haven't stitched on it since last week thursday.
I hope that next week the pattern for the new schnibbles comes in, so that I can finish it on time.

This weekend my mother and me were in Belgium in this beautifull bed and breakfast in Veurne. I have been here alone in 2008 when I went a few days earlier to the belgium quiltweekend. I love it very much and the breakfast is really special. Every day there is something different and when you can get to have hosttable in the evening, that is really a treat. This time we had quail for diner and it was delicious. Now I have it in my freezer too, to make it some time soon and I know how to make it now.
When we drove to Veurne we went to this quiltshop and I have bought some beautifull fabrics there. I am making 1/2"inch hexagons with them. which I started at the mini quilt bee in Poperinge.

On saturday we did a nice bikeride to Poperinge where Hilde organized a little quiltbee in the garden with Inge , Katrien , Gudrun and Jose. It was very nice to meet them again. In October I will see them again at the belgium quiltweekend. Pics can be seen at their blogs.
The rest of the weekend was also lovely.

Yes, yes yes yes I am happy

The dutch are through the semifinals of the world cup soccer. LOL but that is not why I am really happy. The part I am the most happy about is that Little red riding hood is finished. I started it 1 august 2006 and now it is finished. Isn't it beautifull.
Today I started a new one and it is ...... drumroll...... St nick in his study.
