mid August i was at a sewing retreat, where i finally could finish the Patchwork blanket i started in winter.
enough space to spread all the pieces i had prepared. i numbered them and sewed them together Piece by Piece.
the backing is a dark blue bedsheet,
size is 135 x 200 cm.
at home i asked my son to hold it up to photograph it;
the three yellow signs on the photo below point at the pockets i embedded (taken from Shirts and an Overall), so i can hide secrets in the blanket;)
our annual retreat always is at the Schmelmer Hof in the alpine upland,
where we also are spoilt with wonderful meals...
here Gnocchi with oyster mushrooms (and a pils)
and Crème brûlée with Physalis for dessert
now, the week after the retreat
i had a lot of good Food in Berlin also
(theme for further posts, i haven´t sorted my photos yet)
honeyroasted goatcheese with walnuts, one of the Tapas we had at la orilla
of course max (son #2, who lives in Berlin) knew where to get "the best" ice cream
very good noodle soup with pork: "shoyu"
eaten in the japanese Restaurant cocolo ramen
i think i never ate so many different and tasty dish in such a short time period as i did in the last two weeks
so why not continue at home?
(well, with something traditional this time...)
i thought a yummy plum cake (with crumble) would be good for the Weekend and so i baked a tray (part of it went into the freezer of course...)
