At the Plantijn-Moretus

I had a super quick visit in the Plantijn-Moretus
museum, it was really too much, 35 rooms stuffed
with bibles, maps, paintings etc.
The rooms were dimmed with curtains, so i got
my indigestion soon. But i've seen some cute
prints:




This must be a penguin i think


There was a note together with this small bundle
of lace saying : meanwhile, Jeanne Rivière, Plantin's
wife, kept a lace- and linen-shop.


luckily, sometimes a ray of sun popped in.

Dino for Daan.

Some time ago, I promised a five year old boy
a dino-drawing. After a few tryouts, I got frustra-
ted and I quitted. This one , I was making just for
the fun. I'm afraid the boy is expecting a bit more
expertise.

twigs, leaves and caterpillar.







Just messing around in the house and doing
some needlework, it the easiest way to relax
for me.
I was trying out some new stitches here.

The museum is an old sixteenth century buil-
ding. You can see in the reflextions.

I recently visited the 'Maagdenhuis' in Antwerp
It was before a house for young orphan girls.
This is what they learned at school.
