Saturday Bee

Walking this morning to Laura’s Quilt Atelier I have to admit I don’t appreciate Amersfoort as much as I maybe should. The historical medieval city centre has been well-preserved and can definitely compete with other cities, like for example Ghent. You are most probably wondering why I’m comparing Amersfoort with Ghent. Well that was where I was at the beginning of this week. More about that in an other post.

After all the quiltmakers showed their works, Laura showed her progress.

I love the colors of the quilt underneath. Another project that Laura is working on.

Look at this lovely machine stitching. If I’m correct this is done by a Sashiko Quilting machine.

Well this is what I did in those 2 hours I was there! I cut squares to make pinwheel blocks for my ‘Twas the night before Christmas’ stitchery quilt.

To trigger your memory, here are some old pictures.

Laura found this on her last trip to the States. A mouse in a box. Had to share

Walking back to the parking garage – a multi-storey car park – I first have to walk through the Muurhuizen again.

I popped in the  VitaminStore on the way back to the parking garage. Had to get some Magnesium & Fish Oil tablets. You can also get all sorts of healthy shakes & smoothies. I had this green drink!

Isn’t Amersfoort a lovely town? I had a great time and I’m going to do my best, Laura, and finish some pinwheels before the next bee.

Thanks for sharing your walks around town. I love seeing your scenery and buildings. It looks like your group is making some wonderful things too.
