AND THE WINNER IS.................................................
....................................................







so I think the real winner is Ati, because Lita wanted her to have the little quilt,
congratulations Ati, the little quilt will be sent out to you!

Also I found the pictur of the French landscape I am making a quilt of and the pictures of the traditional costumes from Spakenburg I promised you!































The dark purple costume the ladies are wearing when they are in deep mourning. The light costume is the " normal" costume.The top of the costume is mostly made of sits fabric and stiffened with starch, it is called a kraplap.

Hello Wilma.
Thank you for sending the quilt to Ati. I am sure she will love it.
Love the photos of the costume. I find the headpiece made of lace very interesting, in photos there are different variations - great patterns.
hugs,
Lita

Hi Wilma! Hon I have been visiting your blog for some time.. (found it through Ati's blog) and have enjoyed reading your posts.

Have you recently joined CQ for Newbies? I think I saw your name come through the list...but I might be mistaken.

Thanks darlin for visiting my blog and your wonderful words...that Winter Block was a lot of fun to make... Poor Sharon was so ill at the time, and she still worked on it, God Bless her....

Hope to see you join in on some of the swaps we have going on!!
