Sunday, January 10


Yeey! I made it into 2016:).... I have been a bit under the weather, hence the silent blog. My heart skipped a beat and then raced to make up for that. When you call your doctor and say you have 'pain in the chest area" everyone kind of panicks. Tests were done, pills subscribed and that was that. All done and it seems my heartbeat is a bit faster than what's considered "normal".

Since i had to keep a low profile for a while, I had some time to think. About blogging eg. Stop, keep going, write in Dutch?? Facebook seems to be the new blogging and instagram the new facebook these days. I like neither. So I've decided to keep on blogging every once in a while and perhaps switch to Dutch but for now; same old, same old.

I sewed too. Not much (i slept mostly..) but the Farmer's Wife is growing slowly but surely
 This isn't the final layout. I just smacked all the blocks onto the wall just to see what I got so far.
I also have a new friend: meet Epson, the printer. The old one was way past his time!
It's on my fabric cabinet. Do i want it there? Nope. Does it need to be there? Yep! I'm done with going upstairs to put it on and then again to get the print.
The Epson has 'airprint', to print directly from my Ipad and since I took over Quilting DD s iphone 5, I'm all up to date and into 2016 :)

Speaking of DD: grandchild 1 is expected in a week or so. The Iphone is fully charged and in the vicinity all the time now. You'll never know when that phonecall is coming!!


  1. wat een heerlijke kleuren van de Farmers wife. Daar wordt een mens blij van!
    En bloggen is prima toch? Is toch als een online dagboek, en anders dan Facebook.
    We wachten nu natuurlijk met smart op de eerste foto's van het kleinkind

  2. Ah, congratulations! Then, glad you are alright. I think you should keep blogging but not in Dutch, or maybe not only in Dutch. I love your Farmer's wife so far. Also, I love Instagram. I actually think that is where many of the bloggers have gone.

  3. Gelukkig dat je blijft bloggen! En de komst van een eerste kleinkind is natuurlijk ook heel spannend.

    Groet, Nellie

  4. So glad to hear you are alright Annemiek! What a scare...
    Love your Farmers Wife so far! What cheerful colors!
    I'm on Facebook for things that really aren't quilt related, although I've recently joined a few FB quilting groups...
    I have no clue about Instagram...

  5. I forgot to ask! Has the grand-baby arrived?
