Hello my dear readers. The winterblues are over, though according to the weather here in the Netherlands it will never be summer. I’m feeling I should be out in my garden now, instead I’m inside and took a cardigan from the closet to keep warm. Well, we can’t change the weather, but as so many people here I’m longing for some sunshine and warmth.
As you may have read in my previous post I’ve been spending a week in the UK, of which the most important event was Pauline’s wedding of course, but before and after that day we made it a short holiday with a lot of walks and beautiful scenery. We were reasonably lucky: it was mostly rather cold, but we only had heavy rain on our last day of walking and travelling home.

And another meeting, this time we met Clare and her husband for dinner. I’ve met Clare quite a few times now (PR weekends of Paris and Brussels, several meetings after this with the group of seamstresses I blogged about before) and it was a pleasure as always. Nice to meet with the husbands as well. It’s been a week that I have thought several times about what blogging and the internet sewing world has brought me. So many new friends, sometimes meeting in real life, sometimes only contact by e-mail. I am so glad for all this.
Finally, the main topic of my blog is (and will be) sewing. So here’s a sneak peek of the jacket I’m working on. The full story of it will be in another post and it’s quite an elaborate jacket, so it might take a week or so to have it finished.
