An Angel, A Show And Photos.

Posted on | August 1, 2018 | 12 Comments

A mixed post today with all sorts!

There is another finish from the UFO collection. This is a Christmas Angel from Disa Designs. I have patterns for penguins, snowmen and santas from the same designer. I need to get stitching.

Her hair is made from little bells. There is a set of three, but I have not ventured that far.

Last week I spent a lovely day at the Melbourne Craft and Quilt Fair. I had a lovely time looking at all the stands and their tempting wares. I also enjoyed the quilt display. I have pics of just two of the lovely works.





















In both these examples I was amazed by the beautiful effects created with the stitching/quilting.






















Last of all, a couple more holiday snaps.


These first ones are from the Mirabell Palace Garden in Salzburg.






There is a series of these statues representing the different trades that were worked in the area when the palace was built.








We also travelled to Eagle’s Nest. This is the mountain top retreat built by Hitler in the Alps.






This is only part of the building – hard to get the full view without a drone.




The view was stunning.





Our tour started somewhere down in the valley.





A view from the dining room.

I am slowly getting back to stitching. I am surprised at how long it is taking me to get going. Can’t keep blaming jet lag forever!

Cheers, Karen

  • Mary Marcotte says: Love the angel, too. Hitler's retreat is in a stunning view. I could look at the mountains forever. I'm wondering if it feels strange to visit a place with that much beauty, mystery and history, especially knowing what we do now.
