Bon Voyage Houston, Bonjour Holland!

Our last full day in Houston was pretty relaxed and the weather was really sunny.  After breakfast Hennie and I went geocaching, this time on the other side of Houston.  These caches were hidden in the inner city parks and it was nice to see some greenery in the midst of the highrises.

The last day at the Quilt Festival was pretty quiet.  A lot of people had gone home the day before so it was nice having a last look without having to bump into others.  There were also some pretty good bargins to be had.

Then it was back to the hotel to pack.

Tuesday morning we arrived back in Amsterdam to be greeted by Jan and Hilly,  friends that had lived in Singapore and moved back to Holland in April. They took us back to my mother in laws house for coffee.  It was great to see them again.

Now I am staying at Hennies house in Schoonebeek.  Today we went to check out the local quilt shop.
What can I say but Wow!  The shop was in a converted farm house and there were just so many fabrics to choose from. It was HUGE!  They also feature the work of local quilters on their walls and coffee, tea and biscuits were available to guests.  "heel gezellig!" Check out their website:  De Naaidoos

We also had a look in Emmen (and bought some socks which I had forgotton to pack!)

Sorry no photos yet, I hope to post some soon.

Happy Quilting, tot ziens
Marianne
