The fox












 "Goodbye,” said the fox. 
“Here is my secret. It is very simple. It is only with the heart that one can see clearly. What is essential is invisible to the eye.”

 ~Le Petit Prince by Antoine de Saint Exupéry~

After hours and hours quilting...


I finally could say the quilting was done. 
and the only thing left to do was the binding.



And voila, here it is: 
My finished quilt, simply called: "De driehoekjes"


I even can't remember when I started this quilt.


I just sewed random light/dark triangles together from my scrap bag.
Not knowing what to do with them.


Until I found a fabric in my closet which was perfect for the sashings.


 Look at that little house.... a little gift when you take a closer look at the triangles.


Through the years it seemed like that this quilt was a never ending project.


  Until I shared this project with a dear friend I met by blogging.
She was inspired by it and started her own amazingly beautiful quilt with triangles too. 
From that point I was inspired by hers and I was eager to finish mine...
Sometimes other projects got more my attention and it was hard to keep up. 
And always she was there with her support. 
We sent photo's and encouraging words to each other.


And finally it is finished.
 She finished hers a few days ago.

and who is she?

She is : Liliane from Frameless Mind  (click)

She makes stunning quilts. Her blog is inspiring and a pleasure to read.
She has a great eye for photography.

 Thank you Liliane for your support to finish this quilt.
It became one of my favourite quilts. Not only because I like the result.

It is because of the messages we send each other, bonded by fabrics, needle and threads

Fabric postcard


A little while ago I made a fabric postcard inspired by the style of Janet Bolton.
The heart shapes rocks are found in Normandy, France. I have a little collection of heart shape rocks.
It's always a little gift of nature when I find one.

Friends and gifts

Two Instagram friends were so kind to send me "le petit Prince"  in their language to me.

Thank you Kristine for the librarian Norwegian edition
And Trini for the Galician edition

My sister in law bought the Turkish edition for me on her holliday.

I'm so happy with each one of them. 



Trini is very talented and she made an adorable pincushion for me.  I will use it next to my sewing machine. Thank you so much Trini for this special gift.



I knitted these bunny's in return as a gift. They are very addictive to knit. Especially the little dresses. The pattern is from Little cotton rabbits.
The only modification I made was to knit the body in the round. 




 These bunny's found a new home :-) 


and I should be working more on this one....  then I can say: 'It is finished'
