Stumbled upon this lovely pictures (see my post ‘Am I nostalgic or old-fashioned?’ http://wp.me/pW1og-4H) in a shop in Rotterdam. They have great and amazing things from paper-art to books, stamps and gifts. They give workshops too:

Kate’s birthday is coming up so a new project is about to start: the birthday dress. Yesterday was a big fabric-market in Rotterdam with lots of fabric to choose from, how confusing! Kate wanted a orange dress but everything she liked was shiny and glittery. Maybe I had to go alone….. Anyway, after some delibiration I ended up with baby ribcord in red for Kate. The dotted fabric is for a bag I want to make with a pair of handles I bought when we visited Strasbourg last summer holidays. The black flower is picked by Kate. I hope to show you the results soon!!!
Couldn’t resist the fabric you see on the photograph underneath, good excuse for a new dress, it’s some kind of satin. Probably a more long term plan….
