A Colourful Day with friends in the Netherlands

I'm really not that good blogger and I not write so much. It is not that I don't have what to write about. I do.  But sometimes thing are happening to fast and I can not keep up. Until I find the time and the mood to write the events which I want to write about seem so 
far away.
But this time I decide to do it anyway. So this will a serialized post about my visit to the Netherlands.

Since I was invited to teach at FeltFull, I knew this will be my opportunity which I don't want to miss, to meat some dear FB friends. Friends that I never met in reality but our virtual friendship is very important to me and I really wanted to use this opportunity to change this virtual relationship to reality.

My first meeting was with Fabienne Dorsman-Ray and Ingrid Garrod. Very drear friends which our relationship goes far back to the days I just began using FB. 

Ingrid was very nice and offered to come to pick me up from the airport. We decided of a place to meet. I was a bit late but immediately recognize Ingrid from far waiting for me. She took me in her car to Fab place and we spend there 24 unforgettable hours until I had to travel to Friesland.
We talk a lot, laughed a lot, ate a lot (the best Pancakes Peter made for us) and drank a lot of coffee.

Here are some pictures of an happy day to remember. We are opening the bundles Fab prepared for my visit. I very much hope we will meat again.

Ingrid took all our pictures so unfortunately she is not in the pictures.
