Give away and travelling book

A few days ago I received a lovely parcel from Lupineke. I won the competition that she had on her blog www.lupineke.blogspot.nl  She send me fabric from the area Zeeland in Holland, because that is were she lives. The fabric was used to make aprons for the traditional costumes. In the packet I also found Zeeuwse boterbabbelaars. These are delicious sweets.


When I was a kid, my family spend all their holidays in Koudekerke, in a wooden summer house just behind the dike, that belonged to one of my father's brothers.  My father was born and raised in Vlissingen and he loved the area. The boterbabbelaars are a nostalgic sweet for me, because we used to eat a lot of those during these vacations.

The reason for the competition was the book "The Devil's puzzle"  by Clare O'Donohue who writes quilt mysteries. This book is circulating in the quilters world, travelling from one quilter to another.. When I finish the book, I will organize a competition, so that the book will find its way to someone else.

For now, I wish you a good weekend. Lots of Greeks will have a very good weekend, because it is Carnaval  here. And then on Monday (which is a public holiday) the fastening period starts with all special kind of foods. Custom is also to fly kites on this Καθαρή Δευτέρα (Clean Monday), so I hope the weather will be nice. Unfortunately the forecast says....rain!  But forecasts are wrong lots of time anyway, so we keep hour hopes up!
