i spent four wonderful days in bad aibling - the weather was a bit rainy on the first two days, but really hot then. too hot for me to go outside (more than 30°c)
my sewing pals are way better than i am with the machine, so i decided not to take my machine with me and concentrate on my stitching stuff - this way i could avoid lots of packing.
mainly i took two sorts of Cloth with me: rusted pieces and an old blue/white tablecloth, which one day had gotten a large rip and was stored away on the attic. now i rediscovered it and thought it might be a good matching Partner for the rust Color.
i had stenciled (and some of them stitched) patches before at home,
and one of them found its place on the cover of a needle book
my next handsewing Projects are unfinished:
the cuff with the blue cheesecloth will get some more things added, which i didn´t have with me...
and this will become a camera-band to Hang around the neck.
stiched round elements in various blues and then red stars and knots (all together a bit cosmos-like) onto the rusted fabric.
now i must pad it and sew it together:
this Little bag also is sewn with the same Cloth, but here a Zipper is added by machine sewing (which dear Sarah ♥♥♥ made for me).
i will add a stripe of something at the staggered bottom.
on monday we went to a fabric shop and i couldn´t resist this Jersey... had to buy it for a Loop. being not sure my machine at home can handle this streching Cloth Edith helped me out sewing along for me.
(big hugs to my helpers! ♥♥♥)
in between i sometimes just stitched on my bears-jeans. which i almost finished (some more Little Details at the Color elements might be added)
not to Forget the wonderful meals we had... swooning...
i should have photographed from the beginning, but i can only Show you the dinner i Chose on tuesday, which was
"alpine cuisine" (roasted Zucchini, melanzane [eggplant], potatoes, vine tomatoes - wonderfully spiced)
and as Dessert:
diced strawberries with coconut icecream, poppy seed mousse, White rolled chocolate, pepper...
