Fraggling On

This is coming along, although I am truly hating all the confetti stitches on the fraggles.  It doesn't help that I am not fond of any of the colors so far.


There's a market two days a week above the U-Bahn station where Andreas would catch a train. There's a lady who sells live plants.  Andreas bought me some for our apartment in Frankfurt while we were there.

Stitch Maynia #21 - Yellow Bird

This is yet another Mill Hill piece.  Unlike all the others, though, it's done on aida.

Medieval Castle

This is the castle where the medieval festival was held.  It was pretty and fairly small.  Beautiful day to explore, too.

Stitch Maynia #20 - Cloitre et Ecoincons

This bookmark is from France; I bought it during one of my trips there.  It should be pretty easy to work up. The picture is of a cloister and its environs.

Medieval Festival Food

Germany does festival food differently, of course.  On May Day, we went to a festival at a castle not far from Frankfurt.  It was a beautiful day, and we had lunch there.  Andreas had cheesy spaetzle and I had flammekuchen. Both were delicious.  They even had a whiskey stall selling Glengoyne.
