Rock Chick Anouk

Anouk, yes, I'm a big big fan of Anouk. She is great, has style and is a rock chick! I just love her and her songs.  I know she lived in Ohio, US but don't know if she still live there.  And do you believe she is a mother of four?!!
Please listen to this one: Three days in a row akoustic, this is so very nice, and click here for the Three days in a row official video version

Here you can see Anouk behind the scenes at Pink Pop. Awesome to see.
 And this is the latest song of Anouk, called Woman. In one word...WOW
There is a very short Dutch commercial before the clip.

Dress for two year old

I like this kind of dresses. These four I made for charity and gave them away last year.

Babyborn need some clothes to...

You can make them from old clothes, or just from some scraps that every one who is quilting or making clothes are familiar with. :)

Like a Princess

I still haven't a camera to show you all the new things I have made lately. I'm sorry that I have to show you "old" things I made several years ago.
Dress Like A Princess.
The first and second one I made the pattern by myself. The last one is a Simplicity Disney pattern.

All kind of skirts

I have a kind of a problem. My camera is broken. I do have a camera on my new Nokia but I still have to figure out how to get those pics on my computer.
Because of that I'll show you these skirts. I made them years ago and some of them I'm still wearing.
The last one is made from old trousers and left over fabrics.


The pink one is for a little girl.

Quote of the Week, 1

On a community someone called Hazeljane said this:
Only worry about your own actions. Believe in the long run, the universe settles the score.

How do you know that you are a quilter?

You Know you are a Quilter If........
There's more Fabric in the House than Food
"Fat Quarters" are not the heaviest part of your body
Your ironing board is always set up but you never iron clothes
You think of your job as an interruption of your quilting time
You pet Fabric
People are always picking threads off you
You can measure a scant 1/4 by eye
"Featherweight" Doesn't mean Boxer
Your "UFO's" are not from outer space
You clean up your sewing room & they think you are leaving

I found this on a quilterscommunity and wanted to share it with you.

Big Dot Dress

Last year I made a blue summer dress with big white dots on it.  I don't know why but I only wear it one time.
Today it's gonna be a warm and sunny day and I just refound my dress somewhere in the back of my closet. With some lovely espadrilles creating a summerlook. So look what I'm wearing today.
 I'll think the first  gives the right match. But I love the white Tommy Hilfiger Shoes too.

New Phone

A few days ago I purchased a new phone.
I not a person that buys a new phone every year.
 I will take you to a tour. You'll see the phones I owned.
This one was my first, I think it was in 1992 but it could be 1 year earlier because I'm not quite sure. It was a really big one. When I want to take it with me in my little bag I had to take of the antenne!At this one you see that the antenne is shortened.
Then I got this one, everybody was laughing out loud when my old big phone was ringing and it was time to get a new one.(I thought this was the Nokia 3310)

In 2001 or 2002 I purchased this one. It was great because I could connect it with my palmtop and the GPRS from my phone connect with the citymaps of my palmtop. Wow I had my own Gadwinsytem with this!
I really loved this phone because it had infra-red so it could talk to my laptop. I could swap with it and email and it even had bluetooth. It was a very good phone and it is still working. But it had bluetooth1 and everything else has now a days bluetooth 2 so it can't connect anymore. My palmtop died years ago and is replaced by a notebook and I have a  little gadwinsystem for in my car, I have cards to travel trough whole Europe. And the emailfunction doesn't work anymore because my provider doesn't support that function for this phone anymore. So after 8 or 9 years it was time for a new one.

And a few days ago this 3G 5230 phone . I LOVE IT!!! First I was looking for the HTC mini but I'm a Nokia lover so it was Nokia again. (And it has internet, email and citymaps, isn't it awesome!) How long would this one last?
