CAT | wordless wednesday
This Sunday evening when I was checking Facebook I saw a picture which I recognised: It was a picture from “my” city Maastricht! Nancy van der Boom uploaded that one writing to it she has a week off and was going to visit Maastricht. So I immediately asked if we could meet in real. I think last time we met was in Amsterdam 3 or 4 years ago and through the etsy forum thread we already had a lot of chats. Last year we weren’t able to meet and this year…. also not due to my work times Nevertheless Nancy said I want to bring you something… what shall we do? we brainstormed about where she could leave something and I could pick it up. And so she did, uploaded a picture to Fb after she left it
So yesterday (Tuesday) I was so into felting before I had to go to school Ididn’t had time anymore to pick it up so this morning… it was the moment. I drove to Maastricht
And when I reached the place the man handed me over the gift. I was ofcourse very anxious to see what would be inside, but I maneged to keep it closed till I reached my work. Not sooo diffycult as I saw again parts of Maastricht I haven’t been for a long time, gets me back in my childhood and teenagertime
The church where I got my second H. Communion at an age of 12
And then I opened my gift…..
and thought: ” Oh my goodness Nancy you really spoiled me! “
Look at it
A awesome necklace, with 2 selfpainted miniature trees … on one side a spring tree and onthe other side a winter tree
I was/ am speechless.

I wrote this post before going to bed, with the hope I will see some sunshine today too , just like last Sunday when I took this picture in my studio…. I think we all can do with some sunshine in this grey winter weather don’t you think??
A gift from the 14 felting ladies
