Tuesday, July 28


This morning Saffron Craig and her husband Patrick visited us. As they are staying in Holland at the moment and were planning a visit to Rotterdam we got together for a cup of coffee (tea for Saffron) and a slightly overcooked Dutch Apple pie in my still quite empty kitchen. Saffron is very sweet and lovely and I loved getting together and talking about all kinds of stuff. I showed her and Patrick the house, including the really messy parts *blushes*. Of course I forgot to take pictures during our chat and apple pie eating session so we made this very spontaneous one after all that ; )

Saffron brought along some lovely samples of her fabric which I got to keep. :D Aren't they lovely? If you are not expecting a visit from Saffron soon you can also buy these gorgeous fabrics in her online shop.

Saffron, I'm wishing you and your family a lovely further stay in the Netherlands and the other European countries you'll be visiting and a safe trip home!


  1. Wow how fun to meet a fellow online acquaintance! I'm a bit silly weird online but I think in person I'd be quite shy and awkard ;)

    Lucky her for being able to east some yummy dutch apple pie.

    Saffron's fabrics are lovely, I especially love her beautiful yellow dandylion print that's on her website.

  2. How exciting!! to meet a cyber friend for real!! and the tea, and the fabrics, the apple pie....You're such a lucky girl.

  3. Thanks ladies, it is really awesome to meet someone so talented and creative for real! I did feel shy and awkward Bethie...
