england tour 2

Quilt Museum York.

In York we visited the museum of the British Quilters Guild
They gave us the oppertunity to look in their depot.
What I saw there was so special, that I want to show you all.
This jacket is made about 1947 just after World War 2
In England and in the Netherlands you could not buy textile,
their was shortage of everything,
it was what we called on the bill.
A mother made this from old clothes for her daughter.

Today is the great day for the netherlands.
We are in the final of the worldcup football(soccer)
I live close by the big square Museumplein , they think that there are coming about 100.000 people this evening.
Last night a campingbus from italie was parked near my house,
today we saw that they have a business in all kind of orange things and the dutch flag.

I went to the square 3 hours before the match.
Here is a small expression.
