Made it!

So we made it to the Netherlands. We are settling in ok, it doesn't quite feel like home yet but it will do. It is so lovely all four of us being back together again as a family. The girls and I are mastering the buses and there is a fab ice cream parlour opposite the house. Just need to learn some Dutch now!

Way back in January I joined the Modern Mini Mystery Round Robin that Michele from Quilts from my Crayon Box was hosting. In a group of 5 other fabulous ladies, I sent off my centre block and duly received their blocks to add to. Everything was kept secret and none of us knew what was being added to our quilts. This is what I sent off.

Just before we left Finland my mini quilt came back to me. I was gobsmacked when I saw it.  I love it.

As soon as my sewing machine arrived I quilted it with random straight(ish) lines.

It now has pride of place in our living room. I feel really privileged to have been part of this round robin. I want to thank every one of the ladies that have worked on this quilt and made me something so beautiful. Thank you.
