Missing From Blogland... Agan!!!!!


Well, I did have some pics at Sydney airport before I left to prove I had my stitching with me, however, cannot find those pics.


I have just returned from the most a m a z i n g trip - something that hubby and I have wanted to do for many years, and we decided t his was year.

We have just returned from a fabulous River Cruise from Budapest to Amsterdam.
I have to say it was just fabulous.

Now - it is all back to reality.
Of course I havent lost my passion for Stitching, however can say that there I didnt get as near much as what I had planned and took with me as was constantly distracted from the gorgeous Scenerery.

I did manage to find a couple of Patchwork shops though so was beside myself.
Something that I have wanted to do for many years.
Thought I would share a pic.

This is the first Patchwork shop I found.
It was in Rothenburg , Germany
Just love the buildings around here.

Shop was closed for lunch, but luckily opened a few hours later,
so you can sense yes I was first in the door!!!






And this was the lovely lady who served me.
We did well with the language barrier.
ie I showed how much I wanted and she cut.


Then in Amsterdam I was excited to find this shop::


until..... I read the opening hours.
It Was Thursday!!!!! and they  opened, frustration plus!!!!
and we were leaving the next day - grrrrrr



then .... just next door was this lovely little shop!!!!
I didnt think it would appeal, until I walked in




 So ,  naturally I had to go in, and of course I couldnt leave there without purchasing, so purchase a Quiltmania book and I was served by this delightful lady.




 Now best I get back on track and get back to Stitching.!!!!!!'

Stitching pics soon - I hope!!!!!
