                               Last week I was in Paris visiting   l' Aiguille en Fete.
                               And Will  (not so zen In Paris) Elsbeth was there also.
                               We found a beautifull Chintz fabric no name in the selvedge.
                               The boys  From the Netherlands pretent that they are making
                               the only  good chinz fabric,  that they invented Chintz fabric.
                               There fabrics are reproductions and so are the others.
                               There is a kind of war going on who makes the chintz fabric.  
                               See this sample I bought at  DREYFUS In Paris.
                               This is not from them!!!!!!!!
                               I think there are more important things in live to make 
                               such a quarrel over.
                               Maybe it is time that they( the boys) stop there actions.

                                                                  Dreyfus Chintz fabric.
And of course there is my family quilt with antique Chintz fabric.

                           After A year of trying to live with my cat Abeltje
                           I brought him back to the animal shelter
                          After that he attacked me a few times.
                          the result was that I was afraid of him.
                          It was a sad decision I had to take, but for meI had no choice
