April 30th 2013, a day of Dutch pride as Willem Alexander became our new king today. we celebrated with the Dutch kids in class last Saturday; traditional games such as koekhappen, spijker poepen, zaklopen, sjoelen en eierlopen were all a big hit with the kids.
my mom send us some orange and red-white-blue goodies, we watch Dutch television today, and tonight there's a big orange celebration in Toronto with dinner and party to honor the new king and his queen. it's so special to see hundreds of Dutch people celebrate on the other side of the world, we are looking forward to it.
every now and then I get my pencils and brushes out and draw and paint like nothing else. last week I entered such a period again, it feels so good to be back at it.
I am working on the pattern for the flower squares and the blanket of the Catania Grande project....
happy new week of Spring
