There's a small town near here that hosts an international quilt show every year and this year's country was the Netherlands. Seeing as both my parents were born there, I had a really good reason to go!
I went with my mom and a friend, and we all enjoyed the show immensely! Of course, like all good quilt shows, this one also had vendors.... mostly Canadian, but 2 from Holland as well. Now I can buy from Canadian shops any day of the week, but Holland is a little tougher - I can go to any shop here and see/feel the fabric quality; obviously, that's a bit trickier "across the pond". The fabrics were really nice, and quite a few were homespun types.
Well, you can guess the rest - I came home with fabric and ribbon too (I keep telling myself it's for my card-making, but I'm not sure I want to use it!). And, seeing as I love and collect all sorts of sheep-related items, I had to buy the fabric pack with the sheep fabric in it - and it's the very traditional Dutch blue colour.
I can hear you - you want pictures! Have a look:
The blue and white fabric on the far right is the sheep fabric.
