Catching up

I was rather busy the last few months, so I didn't blog a  lot! The preparation for two exhibitions needed a lot of time. Finishing off some quilts, making posters, washing and airing cushions and quilts and lots of other little jobs.




Needless to say that the garden was left to itself for too long.... in desperate need for pruning, weeding, and putting in annuals. Luckily for the garden and me (!), my husband went on pension and is tending the veggie plot ! He even had someone come and prune the citrus trees when I was in Holland. 

Now that the weather is nice Flopsy is much more outside and follows my movements from the other side of the window.


When he is inside, however, he can't stop being naughty !!!



The summer project of the Spartan Quilting Bee is to make a quilt with the magic vine flower blocks. I got the book from Eleanor Burns "the Magic Vine Quilt, which has easy to follow instructions. I dumped scraps on the bed during our meeting to select fabric pieces for the flowers. When everyone was gone and I came back in the room to collect my scraps.....there he was !! With an attitude of saying: "don't come near me, I like this spot and I am not going to move !!!"

Je was vast heel blij dat manlief de tuin even onder zijn hoede had genomen, zodat je al je aandacht aan de tentoonstellingen kon wijden.
Leuk dat je in Nederland was! Veel veranderd?
Ach, en Flopsy, wat een heerlijk beest!

Liefs, Gerry

Dearest Ada,
Oh, there are by far not enough hours in a day for getting it all done; so don't even apologize. You have been a busy bee and your Flopsy is of little or no help. They treat us as their servants anyway!
Enjoy summer and sending you hugs,
Mariette

Wat leuk die tentoonstellingen, ik kan begrijpen dat je daar de laatste tijd druk mee was! En was het inderdaad fijn weer in Nederland te zijn?

Flopsy, the star of the show.
I wonder if he isn't jealous of all the attention your patchwork gets?
