i think this Quote is so common that there is no origin to be found.
once again you see sashiko stitching, in a light rosy colored yarn.
i trace the shapes for the places to leave unstitched with a pen that will vanish by itself.
the words are printed (font: microbrew four) on a paper that i collected from my glasses cleanings. i Think they are too good to throw out just after one use. and they have a somewhat leathery Feeling when laminated (on the back only). they are good to be dyed, too - but here i took a pure one.

on thursday our monthly stampers´ Meeting in munich was due... but: the all-week-Long Train strike (the 8th now!!!) Held me off going there... i was really disappointed and angry actually (People loose understanding for this strike meanwhile...)
as the weather was fine, i tried to find an alternative for my plan to visit the botanical garden in Munich... and decided to go to the botanical garden in Augsburg (the local Train went like scheduled:))
i had heard several times that it should be beautiful - and it is!
different to the one in munich, with lots of small niches to sit and recreate.
and with one of the biggest japanese gardens in europe (4.200 m²)
don´t These branches look like japanese signs?
(not that i have any knowledge about These...)
it was a day with beautiful clouds - happy guessing...

the purple magnolia "nigra" seems to be one of the late bloomers among the magnolias
frogs in spring mood...
actually i wanted to take some pics of ferns to turn them into pngs, but it seems impossible to get them focussed in my camera:(
anyway, it was a beautiful sunny day and i felt Content in the evening...
