And while we are on the subject of cars. My FIL gave us this picture of his dad´s trucks. He had his own flower company and these were the trucks they drove around in. On the billborad in front of the trucks it states ´Nic den Heijer´, the same name as DH and son#1. So this is a special picture and we will hang it in a special place in our home.

I admit it, I am addicted to my coffee. Not so much as I used to but still. I need my cup of coffee in the morning, noon, after lunch, in the afternoon, after diner, ...
So after the succes of the cupcake swap, I would like to organise a coffee swap. For this swap you must make at least one handmade item related to coffee, a miniquilt, a cup stuffie, a painting, etc. and some other coffee goodies.
And because I am quite busy myself, I suggest we swap at the end of april. Who´s in? I think this could be a fun theme for a swap, and I know I am not the only addicted to coffee.

How I remember him being born. The bombing in madrid hadn´t taken place yet, he was born at 00.10 on the 11th. And around 02.30 we left the hospital with a crying baby (because he was cold we guess, it was freezing that night). We went home and there we were, the three of us... nobody knew yet that he was born, we thought we would call friends and family in teh morning.
We didn´t know how to make a hot water bottle for him. DH thought it would be too hot, so he put in luke warm water, but then son #1 started crying, so DH held him until the nurse rang our doorbell in the morning and explained everything.
How fast the years go... Happy Birthday !!!

Tomorrow we are having son #1´s birthdayparty for his schoolfriends. Since most kids like the guinea pigs we have, and want to hold them. So I gave them a bath. So Chocolate and Mousse (that is the name son #1 gave them 4 years ago) are very nice and clean when children want to pick them up.
Have been busy with the babyquilt I am making for my friend An´s baby who we expect any day now. So I am quilting like a maniac to get it finished in time. When it is finished I will publish a picture of it.

In teh middle of the park, near the castle there are some very old trees and this own reminded me of some smock work I did. Isn´t the bark wonderful?
We walked to the playground were we had something to drink and I can show my newly purchased snack bags from Mama Made. They are wonderful and such a good alternative to disposable bags.
The polka dot bag I got as a birthday gift from Niels´s cousin. I love this little lunchbag.
