Het is al weer lang geleden dat ik een bericht op WOYWW- blog heb gepost.....wel gelezen, want het is zo leuk om te zien wat iedereen aan het doen is en het geeft inspiratie en een duwtje in de rug....

It has been a long time ago I posted on the WOYWW-blog....though I did read it, because it´s so inspiring and helpfull, thank you!

Op mijn bueau ligt een deel van de ´lockdown´ blokken, een blok voor iedere dag...

On my desk you´ll find some of the ´lockdown´blocks I made  starting March 13th, one block for every day...

Deze maakte ik gisteravond, met restlapjes van de mondkapjes en met lapjes uit één van de restjeszakken.

These blocks are made with leftovers from quilts and leftovers from the face masks I made yesterday. The blocks are sewn on old newspaper.

Elke dag starten we met een lange wandeling met de vrolijke stippel...

Every day we start with a long walk with the spotted dog...

en elke dag zien we het gras hoger worden! En ik denk dan altijd aan dit liedje:

Wij gaan op berenjacht,
we gaan een hele grote vangen
Wat een prachtige dag!
Wij zijn niet bang

O je! Gras!
Lang wuivend gras!
We kunnen er niet over
We kunnen er niet onder

We moeten er door!

And I can see the grass growing higher and higher every day and always think of this song:

We´re going on a bear hunt!
We´re going to catch a big one
I´m not scared!
What a beautiful day!

Uh! Uh!
Long wavy grass!
We can´t go over it
We can´t go under it
Oh no!
We´ve got to go through it!
Swishy swashy! Swishy swashy! Swishy swashy!

It reminds me of the days I took care of my grandnephew in Watford...always singing in the car 😊

Een hele fijne dag gewenst!

Have a nice day!

  8. Beautiful fabric blocks - will you be stitching them together to make a throw or a quilt? That's a gorgeous picture of your dog and I loved the Bear Hunt poem - brought back some lovely memories of singing that with my nephews when they were little.

  12. What a great idea to do a block a day during the quarantine! I made some masks but that’s about all I’ve done with the machine during this time. Happy WOYWW 11th year anniversary! Dorlene #41

  13. Happy 11th WOYWW anniversary Francisca,what a good idea to make a lockdown patchwork, hope you will share a finished article eventually.
    I love that you are quoting from Bear hunt, in UK some people are putting bears in their windows for children to spot when out for their daily exercise.
    Thanks for sharing

  14. Hoi, goedemiddag Franciska. Wat een leuk liedje is dat, dat ken ik helemaal niet (en mijn moeder leerde me toch héél veel liedjes vroeger, 'k zal eens vragen of ze deze kent.) Ik snap niet helemaal wat je bedoeld met 'lockdown blocks' (zal straks even naar je vorige blogpost scrollen.) Ik wens je een hele fijne dag - geniet maar van de zon en blijf veilig. (Hier in Zeeland was het rustig maar ik hoorde net dat er een 8 km file staat nu, iedereen wil ineens toch naar het strand denk ik, domdomdom!) Liefs uit Middelburg, Marit #32

  15. P.S. Heb net je vorige posts even bekeken en weet nu wat 'lockdown blokken' zijn! Leuk hoor, dat wordt prachtig én een herinnering voor altijd!

  19. Happy belated 11th WOYWW, isn't IT amazing!? 😊 and so grateful to have your friendship through it! And glad you could be here for the special date!!
    Great idea of blocks.. can then make a block blanket or rug.
    And we used to sing that in the car too. But it was going on a lion hunt.. not bears! Funny isn't it??
    Thanks for sharing, and may God bless and keep you and all whom you love safe and well.

  20. Sorry I’m late! Great to see you again Francisca, and well done on the block a day, that’s a dedication for sure. You went into lockdown much earlier than we did, so it has been a long old time. Thank goodness for your lovely spotty dog, at least you had a good reason to go out in the fresh air for a decent time!
