getting ready !

Still about two weeks to go till the baby is due. I am in Athens at my daughter's place, helping out and waiting. This cot quilt was made about a year ago, but it was a little plain, till I appliqued the bear on it two weeks ago. 



Of course I also wanted to make something for the nursery, and, as it is going to be a boy, I choose these VW cars wall hanging. My first car was a Volkswagen beetle, slivergray, 10 years old. How I loved that car. No digital picture, though! 



Still in Sparta I finished the placemats for my Greek neighbour friend who lives in Holland and has two Dachshunds. The colours of the picture are not very good. I quickly photographed the doggies before I handed them over and started packing to get myself on the bus to Athens. 


My husband is on garden duty now and except from our Flopsy, he has company, when watering the garden, from a few stray cats, that we feed. 
This one is very cute and my husband's favorite.

 

 He looks a bit like Flopsy, who really likes his food, plays in the garden with the other cats and fights with intruders who don't belong in his territory. A bit peculiar, because he is neutered !!




Besides the garden Flopsy also likes fabrics and quilts. Whenever he gets the chance he will try to have a nap on top of my precious pieces.

  2. Oh, die vw'tjes, Ada! Geweldig!
    Ik heb er ook jaren in gereden, in een oranje en hij deed het altijd. Toen hij af was, was het afscheid moeilijk.
    Leuk dat je je dochter bijstaat, spannend de komende twee weken!
    Geniet een goede tijd.

    Liefs, Gerry

  6. Dearest Ada,
    Oh my, can't believe that you are nearing the due time already.
    Love your work and those VWs are so very charming.
    Your Flopsy is a very spoiled stinker and what a beautiful stray cat that is.
    When I look out of the window onto our driveway, often our neighbor's cat is there, waiting till feeding time and hoping ours will come out to play or just lay lazy together.
    Sending you hugs and best wishes for an easy delivery.
    Mariette
