Next weekend it is "Textielweekend" in Tilburg (South of the Netherlands). During this weekend there are all kinds of activities around textiles. Workshops, expositions, lectures and also a market where textile designers sells beautiful things like scarfs, jewelry and bags and where suppliers sell wool, felt, yarn, fabrics and notions. Guess what? I was invited to be part of the supplier market and will be there on the 3rd and 4th of October! Working very hard at the moment to make buttons, iron on velours sets, cutting fat quarters and more (I will show pictures later this week). If you plan to come to Tilburg next week, I would love you to come and say hi to me!

New, new, new.....

I have done a big shop update in the last few days and added new ribbons, appliques and fabrics (already some christmas items as well) and again, I love them all!
These two fabrics are my favorites:

And if you tell me what your favorite fabric is and why, you might be the lucky one to win a fat quarter of it! Just leave me a message before Sunday night and I will draw a lucky winner on Monday...

After a few days in Denmark, we went to Sweden for two weeks.
First one week close to Uddevalla on the west coast (above Goteborg).
The campsite was situated close to the sea where the boys spent lots of time throwing stones, shells and branches in the water (good opportunity for me to read some books!).

On our way to the second place in Sweden, we visited Boras, the capital of textiles in Sweden. We went to the textile museum, which is located in an old industrial building and explains how fabrics are made. They also show work from textile artists and students from Sweden.

The second week we spent on the east coast of Sweden, also on a campsite close to the sea (more stones in the water...).

We all really liked the visit to Garpen, a beautiful small island with a few houses and a lighthouse (which I didn't climb, my legs shaked after a few steps on the stairs).

Denmark (1)

Already a week ago, since we got back from our holiday. We went to Denmark and Sweden and stayed in four different "Stuga's" (small cottages on a campsite).
We started in Denmark, on a campsite close to Legoland. And of course, we visited Legoland.

It is really worth a visit! We all enjoyed it and almost every attraction is accesible for young kids.
It is not only good fun, but the houses, cities and monuments built from Lego bricks all are very beautiful to look at.

We are back from a relaxing and inspiring holiday in Denmark and Sweden (I'll tell you a bit more about it later) and now it is time to draw a winner! A big thanks to you all for your sweet comments via my blog and e-mail, it felt like a little home coming present. So, enough talks, I used a random number generator to draw the winner and Meisjesmamma is the lucky one! Congratulations, the price will be on it's way to you very soon.
