It’s well after 10pm here in Germany as I write this, after a very very full day!
We started the morning out with a visit to Birgit’s quilt shop, followed by a stop at an antique store for some browsing, and yes I found some goodies! ((And took lots of pictures)) and then to the bakery for some lunch items and goodies ((and yes I took more pictures!))
And then we were off to Ludwigsburg to visit the castlle—fabulous tour! It took more than 1.5 hours, and we got to go through more than 65 rooms!
By the time we got back to Aby’s house, there was just barely a chance for a little rest and a bite of dinner, and then we were off to visit with the schoenaich quilt guild…what a great time we had! I was so nervous. My German is pretty limited (to about 10 words, maybe!!) but we had some translating going on, and you know, Quilting is a universal language right? We all enjoyed each other very much and I’ll be spending the day with them tomorrow!
Since this is a quicky post….I thought I’d send in a couple fun ones! What was the first thing that Aby and I did upon my arrival? Dropped off my bags, headed to the grocery store to stock up on Ritter Sport bars to take home to the guys, and treat ourselves to some gelato in the mal!! LOL! ((You know this girl will never pass up any ice cream of any kind!))
Aby with her wild berry concoction!
And myself with some butter rum cookie crunch thing that was so un-believably good!
Seriously. I have been taking pictures left and right, and find myself with no time to edit everything down! By the time we get back to the house, I’ve got 100 emails to go through……contacting family, etc, and I’m so tired I can scarcely keep my eyes open!
Tomorrow is no different, we have the second Cathedral Stars class, and then a lecture/trunkshow in the evening. Here I thought I’d be posting left and right with cool things, but likely I’ll have to catch up when I get home!
I trust that you are all well and good and quilting away…and I’ll be back in touch as soon as there is a spare moment to post more
