I have a great time. I went this week with Anita and Jacques to the North Sea. They were married for 45 years and I went with them. I was at the seaside and on a boat. Although I like it here very much I are going to be a little bit homesick. Anita has made a friend for me and he will travel with me. Next week I will go on my long way home. I hope you like my photo's. Oh boy what was it cold outside and a lot of wind.
I have to give you greetings form Anita and Jacques.

I have been a while in the Netherlands now and it is not cold but a lot of wind. So I got a sweater. Do you like it. I met some new friends. There are pictures of my new friends. Today I have been on a tour on the bicycle. We went to a lake. It is very hard to climb a bicycle as you can see on the picture. Anita and Jacques has ask if I can stay till after 26th October. Then is there 45th weddinganniversary. If the weather is nice they go to the seaside and I am invited. Maybe there will coffee with cakes, yammie.
Next week I go with Anita to a quilt show. In November I will coming home, so I will be with my family before christmas.
Anita put some pictures of me on her site: http://avander.web-log.nl
Love you mum

And the Stratford Glockenspiel Clock Tower featuring Romeo and Juliet of course!
The Hawera Water Tower
The beaches http://www.windwand.co.nz/surfhw45.htm
The wind wand on the foreshore in New Plymouth
And as my host family live on a dairy farm, I have been immersed into the farming lifestyle
The hardest part of my journey though is saying goodbye, Mum you will have to come and visit one day, I'm sure Michelle and her family will put you up and show you all the sights too(quiltshops included)

The wind was blowing and the clouds looked threatening...
The second cliff face you can see in the picture is actually the edge of Shells new farm! Far too high to fish from, but there has been mention of it being a great place for hand gliders or kite surfing. The water looks far too cold for this little bear though!
I would much rather stay and look at the view from the comfort of the car!
Shells DH often goes out on his kayak for a fish, kahawai, blue cod, lemon fish... Mmmmm...
Just a few more days before my travels continue, we have one or two more sights on the list so let's hope the weather co-operates!
Until next time

And we've been doing lots of shopping...
First off we bought some mittens to keep my paws warm! And then headed off to the LQS, 'Cinnamon Lodge'
This is the fabulous Claire who owns the shop, I got lots of snuggles and got to see a lot of great quilts too! The quilt I am sitting on has six blocks that are weaved from bias strips (sorry the photo doesn't show it very well) to form different patterns. The one behind us with the Matryoshka dolls was so pretty.
There were lot's of little nooks and crannies to explore
And I made some new friends
And just look at this beauty
There's such a lot of work gone into this quilt, it's going to look stunning when it finished!
Unfortunately I cant share what I bought here yet, as it is for my next host!
We have plans to do a little sightseeing as soon as the rain stops, so make sure you check back here soon.

Here I am relaxing after my long journey. It is a lovely autumn day here today, though I’m told the nights are pretty cold.
Can you guess where I am?
Here I am with Olivia the youngest daughter of my host family, isn’t she cute and check out that dimple!
Make sure you check back here again soon, to see more of my adventures!

I am hoping that I will get to see the world and have my photo taken on my journey. I am also hoping that my friends will write about my adventures here on my blog page for everyone to see, as well as their own. Although mum is hoping I get to see some quilt shops too ( she is a worry). So if you are interested in having me to visit you just leave a comment and mum will get back to you with the finer details. I can't wait to start my journey and looking forward to meeting you all.
