Kaleidoscope, to do or not to do, that is the question.

Yesterday I went to Mirjam to do some work on my Kaleidoscope quilt. Yes, the one I started one and half years ago.

Naturally you are all curious how far I got, well not very far, as I forgot the most essential part, the pattern. I travelled about 70 kilometers, with my sewing machine, sewing box, and a box with my fabric. I thought it was a good idea to take everything with me, so that I wouldn't get there and find out I left something at home. I really thought I had come prepared, but once we started unpacking to sit down and work on the kaleidoscope, I found out that I had left my pattern in my ringbinder. And naturally, I had forgotten to take that with me.

So Mirjam showed her progress on her feathered star quilt.

And underneath, is her sampler, which is another stunner.


To fill our afternoon program, we went to ...

Yes, to Zutphen. I'm sure some are jealous, after reading this. By the way, I was a good girl. I only bought one thing, and that was a present for Mirjam, who will soon have a birthday.

As you might have guessed, I bought her present at Petra Prins, the quiltshop in Zutphen.

Just to be cheeky, this is what I forgot to take with me.

IMG_3403 Better luck next time, I guess.
