Yesterday Annie Thieleman and I went to Biggekerke, for the open day at 'Beeld in Balans' ('Sculpture in Balance'), Schuitvlotstraat 1. This atelier (in a farm) is a beautiful workplace where sculptors can work, inside and in warmer weather, outside. Joep Aerssens welcomed us with a cup of coffee and told us about the atelier and the works that are exhibited.

The 'Vliedberg' (Motte-and-bailey castle).
A curious goat...
The goat keeps the grass neatly of the 'Vliedberg'.
Church (Nederlands Hervormde Kerk), ca 1400
In this church was a nice exhibition of quilts.
Annie looking the quilts.
A bakker showed how Zeeuwse bolus are made. They are delicious: warm and crunchy.
You could guess how many buttons were sewn...
It's always fun to see what is being sold on the market.
