Marta is a cousin with who I used to spend my summer holidays. Although we were not the best friends, we had good times and I still remember when we were waiting for them…it was always with a huge expectation,  she would always bring cool stuff, specially because she used to live in Luxembourg! The clothes, the music and so on, and of course she was older than me, so the impact was bigger!

So now Marta became a mom, I know that Matilde was born, and I bet she is perfect and beautiful!

Here it’s the sling that I made for them, and a bib for Matilde!

Girls, I hope you enjoy everything and I just wish all the happiness in the world!

p.s. And today is my 30 th birthday..I’ll post later about this special day too!!!

Last week I went to the city market, there were new and beautiful new fabrics! I was so happy, of course I bought a couple of them, plus some classic ones that I was missing (dots, and so on). Nowadays, going to this market is almost impossible, due to my work, and I miss it so much. The market is always at Tuesdays in the city center, and to go there I’ve to use my lunch time…which actually is a great idea, specially when sun is out there!

Netherlands has open markets in very city and more than once a week. For food, I go to one on Saturdays,and that market is also wonderful.

So for what I’ve seen (including the famous ones in Amsterdam), Eindhoven (Tuesday market) is much better and even as more variety than the others. I guess the reason is that all the fabric shops from the villages around this region are coming to the city. and I guess, the same for the food, since this is also a farmers region!

Yesterday morning we had this lovely flower on our window, it open during the night!! It was a lost bulb that I found on our garden, and I read that you can just put them on the water (the base and the roots of the bulb need to be in touch with water), and they will grow!! It’ s a really nice idea and of course if you have the heating system under it, it speeds up the process.

And we are having blue skies and sunny days!

(p.s. even if it still freezing, like -1 to 5 degrees)
