silent people and amsterdam

Near My Mothers home I saw these people in the field, I asked what it was. the farmer told me,
they had a theatre weekend.
In Finland are 500 people in a field called silent people.
Here 50 of them
Wil ( not so zen in Paris) Stayed a few days with me, we went to the
NOORDERMARKT in the town centre of Amsterdam .
I saw this in a booth,
You can buy cookies in metal boxes from all kind of towns by us as a souvenir
the salesmen sells them to collectors of old thin boxes.
I saw this on my way the sun in the windows of the big buildings from the ZUIDAS.

new Quilt ideas

It is a long time ago that I posted something on my blog.
This had to do with the new way of blogger,
not all new things are good!!!
 I have a lot of troubleswith it.

Tomorrow  I see Lucy and ask her a few things.

This summer, made blocks for the quiltretreat by Gwen Marston this autum.

In the QUILTMANIA NR 90   this idea I liked  ,
I have boxes of squares so I tried

Here is the result
And you organise the blocks
You cut them
You make a block with 9 squares
