I was very lucky today :
my friend Caroline (of the felting-exchange) had told me
she was going to the "weavers market" in Hoorn
and when I asked, I could go with her !!!
(I had never been there, but heard a lot about it)
A steady drizzle accompanied us to Hoorn
and it only grew worse.
(We met another felting-exchange friend,
Paulien, who lives in that neighbourhood
and much later Anneke who came by train)
Umbrellas up, but it got only wetter,
so after the first few stalls we stopped for coffee !
these colours make you happy !
"Rest in Felt"
Does that say what it looks like ?
Yes, this lady makes winding sheets (graveclothes) out of felt !
This particular one she has made for her mother,
still very healthy ... and 84 !
The mother explicitly asked for it
and wanted lots of flowers.
So special !
Here we had lunch,
waited for number four of our party,
and I also found my long-time-no-see blogging friend Siets !
It was dry, so on we went.
There were many more lovely stalls
but ... I was too busy
(feeling all the goodies
and buying some)
to take more pictures !
Thanks ladies, especially Caroline,
for this wonderful day !
