day 28 ... a friends-day

Ahhhhh, how I looked forward to this day
and yes, what I feared that could go "wromg" 
but what a wonderful day we had
with my blogging-friend Natima and her husband Tom !!!

It was a lot of  sunshine  on a rather gray and cloudy day.
Thanks my dear friends for being such lovely special guests.

We picked them up on Rotterdam Central Station
took the Metro and had some coffee/tea
before we were off
to the windmills in Kinderdijk,
had lunch at our home,
then took the Fast Ferry back to Rotterdam again
and walked around the city
and ended it all in the "Markthal"
this amazing Rotterdam variation on the "Sistine Chapel"
(yes, I know : people in R'dam think BIG !)
They went back by train to Amsterdam
and we went on the boat home.

Boy oh boy, what a marvellous day !
We'll cherish the memory of it !

(Oh yes, then I still had to stitch a bit on my jewel)

Here is 

Pink Ribbon  felted jewel 28

a flat square with a double coloured sun,
embroidered with silk and rayon thread 
and sequins and beads.
6  cm  (2.3")

Nat and her Man brought to us :

I was glad I had something to give her in return

See you tomorrow with my next fe.lted jewel
but :
only three more jewels to go !
