Amsterdam and my DS :-) 


Day 182

"No picture"

I cycled but I was to lazy to grab my camera... thought to take a picture later. 
Went out for a visit and that took longer than I thought.
I was tired and went immediately to bed when we came home.
Next morning I realized that I didn't take a picture :-/

My focus is still on this quilt. 
To finish it is more work as I thought a few days ago. I can tell you that I was a bit optimistic.
I'm preparing this cross stitch as a 'take along' project....
