The French Connection

Hello friends!
 Last September a quilting friend had her birthday and fortunately I had a birthday present ready-made waiting on the shelf for her.
 She is of French origin, moved to Dokkum when she married her Frisian husband, many years ago.
 This is my birthday present for her
The French, Dutch and Frisian flags are all to find on this .....


 For Alie Bahlmann, my Q-Teacher here in Dokkum when I first started quilting four years ago, I made this pincushion; it's my own design, using Dutch fabrics and adding self crocheted red  Frisian 'Pompebl├¬den' at the connecting points.

Pincushions showing the French - Frisian Connection.
Made in Fryslân by a Dutch non-Frisian girl :>)

 Have a nice day!

  5. The Neolithic period ushered in agriculture and cooking.
    As a newbie, you tend to be tempted to buy the usual food that you
    were used to, but if you have the list, you can focus on accomplishing it rather than indulging in what you
    want or are craving at that moment. As you can probably tell,
    that leaves you with very few things to eat. Strawberry Sweet Bread
    will stay fresh when stored in an airtight container in your refrigerator for
    up 5 days.

  6. There are many different styles to choose from and once again,
    it would be better to ask the man for his input and what he
    prefers. When temptation arises, you just simply look at
    the promise ring you wear on your finger to remind you of that promise you made to your partner or your loved one.
    The fashion consciousness of men has given rise to new styles and
    unique designs when it comes to finding the mens titanium rings perfect wedding band.

  7. Suffers of these intolerances have to eliminate wheat or dairy from their diets.

    The Paleo Diet excluded these foods cooked they still retain small amounts
    of toxins or anti-nutrients. The Paleo diet will not only make you drop weight faster than
    any other diet, you will do so in a healthy fashion. Fish is an important component but it cannot be farm raised.
