Although I missed the WIP Wednesday because of our stay in Belgium, here a little update on the block I am working on. This is how it looks now!

And some pictures from Aywaille/Remouchamps, the Ardennes, Belgium:

Wouldn't this make a great embroidery pattern?

Last Sunday we had the hottest day of the year in Belgium, 39 o C!! Doggie Daisy did spent much time in the Amblève to cool down!
And this is our view on the other side of the river, can you find the goats?

                     Work in Progress Wednesday..........

Sharon Boggon started a WIP Wednesday to encourage people to finish their projects. You can read more about it over here.
This is a project I like to finish, I stitched a block in blue and brown and I am planning to make a bag from it. Have never made one before and have no idea how to do that..... will keep you updated!

A lovely gift..

Yesterday I received a package from my friend Cathy with some more tins to alter! She also added some of her beautiful dyed laces from her Etsy shop, thanks so much Cathy! Can you imagine what I did today?

                      Yes, one more altered tin finished.......!
All ATC's from the last post are swapped, they are on their way to Norway and the USA.

Thursday I was in Apeldoorn again at the last brocante market of this summer, I was happy to find this vintage sewing box from the fifties and a few silkies!

          Who wants to swap an ATC?
These ATC's (Artist Trading Cards) are all made with several (vintage) traditional fabrics from Staphorst, The Netherlands. The pictures don't do justice to the vivid colors, especially the green color is much bolder. If you want to swap one with me, just make a comment, leave your mail address and let me know which number you want, first come, first served!
