Visit To The Mothership

Last May we visited our friends who live in Sindelfingen, just outside Stuttgart. You know what else is in Sindelfingen? Zweigart! So we wet to their outlet store abutting the factory. The outlet was as big as a Hobby Lobby. I didn't know Zweigart made all these things. There was yarn (lots of yarn) and scrapbooking stuff and, of course, lots of fabric. They had both quilting and stitching fabric. They also had some kits and some premade things to stitch on. We spent a good hour perusing the aisles. The last photo is of my stash in the bag. My friend didn't even know the place was there until I told her, but she now goes there for craft supplies for school projects for the kids.

For spending so much money on textiles, Andreas received a coin purse and a honey dipper free.


The giant stem in the middle is done. I'm over halfway complete with this project. Lots of little flowers yet to do.

On To Four

This old project is well on its way to stitching completion. Once I'm done with the fourth block, I need to add triangles to the bottom then lots of backstitching for outlines to put it together.

Flowers On The Windowsill

Our apartment in Frankfurt last spring had a ledge. So when Andreas bought me these flowers, that's where I put them.

This is Kosovar handwoven cloth. Andreas bought it for me when I left him to go to the embassy bazaar on his own. He did good.

Cabana Beached

I managed to finish this into something to hang. It's about to be on its way to a friend in Moldova. Turned out nice and cheery.
