Stitcher's day in Belgium

Last Saturday we had a meeting from our Dutch Borduurhoekje group. Which is not only Dutch, because we also have Belgium members. This time we've met in Belgium at Chantal's home. Chantal, thank you for your hospitality!

I was the driver, so together with Diana, Jacq B and Jeanine we drove to Bevel and arrived there at 11.00 am. Willeke, Pascal and Iris were already there, and just a little later also Ilse arrived.

We did a lot of chatting, show our stitching, quilting and kartonage projects, more chatting, eat a lot of good food, chat again, stitch a little, eat Belgium chocolate (Yummie!) and played a funny game with some presents.

This is the present I've got from Ilse:

Three great panels of fabrics. These two for christmas, and also the scarecrow I showed earlier in the "Stoffenspektakel"-post. Isn't that a coincedence?

From Jacq, Jeanine and Diana I've got these lovely fabrics, for being the driver to Belgium:

And just before we were leaving home, I've got this lovely little box from Chantal for the Crazy-exchange! It's just perfect with the birdhouses! Thank you Chantal! I'm already looking for something to make you in return.

When we were on our way home, we started to get hungry (almost impossible after all the great food we've already had). So when we came by Ikea in Eindhoven we've decided to have diner there. And ofcourse shop a bit! We've ended up with a lot of candles, paper napkins and toys for the kids that missed their mummies the whole day. It almost didn't fit in the car anymore!

It was a great day and I hope we're going to do this soon again!

Congratulations on the lovely Crazy Exchange from Chantal! I am enjoying the group, but sadly am not popular enough for anyone to choose to send to me... I keep plugging along and sending to others, and maybe someday will get something. Your giftie is beautiful!!!
