Fabric pages (sorry, but Blogger doesn't let me change the size of the characters....)

These are the fabric pages I have received in June and July.

The first one with Joan of Arcs emblem is made by Marja in Holland.
She made the page of felt and it looks just like an emblem you can sew on a jacket.
The other page is made by Janny, also from Holland. She stuffed the page made with Provence fabrics with lavender, so it smelled lovely when I opened the envelope.
Thank you both for your lovely work, I have pinned the pages with the other 4 I already received to the wall of my sewing room and it is becoming a wonderful collection.

June 2009

La Belle South, a trip through 7 states.......

I don't know where to start with telling you about our wonderful 2964 mil
es long trip through the USA in June.
We started in Atlanta, here you see a
view from our hotelroom. In Atlanta we visited the Martin Luther King Jr. National Historic Site, where we saw his church, house of birth and grave, which was very impressive. From there we travelled to Cherokee, where we visited the Museum of the Cherokee Indian (interesting). The town itself we found a bit to touristic, because of that we joined the seafood buffet in our hotel where I ate my first lobster thanks to the cook who explained me how to eat it....
The next day we travelled
through the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains on our way to Charleston, I have never seen mountains with such colorful vegetation and the most beautiful big butterflies! Also we met and talked with several motorcyclists,it must be so great to make this trip by motorbike with these temperatures!
I forget to tell that all the time we were in "La Belle South" there was a heatwave with temperatures around 95-100 degrees!!

To be continued......

Gone to soon............

Today is a sad day for Michael Jackson fans all over the world, including me and my family. We just watched his memoral service and were very touched by it.
I grew up with Michaels music, danced on Billie Jean as a teenager, also our son, born in 1985, shares our love for his music.
Michaels made so much wonderful music, I think my favorite song is "little Susie".
I am happy that we all have seen Michael perform here in the Netherlands in the Amsterdam Arena in 1997 with the History tour.

Michael, rest in peace, your music will live forever!
