Yesterday Greetje Hein and her husband Frens came to visit. They are on holiday in Norway and made a detour to our island so that we could meet. Greetje has translated many of my patterns to Dutch, and she is importing and distributing them throughout The Netherlands. She also gives classes all over the country.
Greetje has made her own version of the Ormen Lange bargello quilt, and she brought it with her so that I could get to see it “in person”. Here she and her husband is holding it up so I could take some photos.
She has a lovely shiny turqoise fabric as her focus fabric, and she has also added lots of beads:
Below Greetje and I are posing on the verandah, which is where we spent most of the time during their visit:
She also brought lovely gifts: Dutch fabrics, a fabric marker which makes very thin lines, plus refills in different colours, and a Dutch magazine with lots of yummy quilts in it:
This morning while we were sitting at the breakfast table, one of our neighbours also decided to pay a visit. Below is Frens trying to capture the morning guest with his camera:
It was so nice to meet up with Greetje and Frens, – chatting along for hours as if we were old friends. I hope that we can make a return visit in Holland at some time.
