Holidays in Switzerland and Catchup

I can't believe it's been so long since I posted on here.  I'm engrossed on a course with Distant Stitch, Creative Sketchbooks that time has simply flown by.  I'm really enjoying messing about with paint and paper.

Another distraction is holidays in Switzerland on the Glacier and Bernina Express.  The temperatures ranged from -2 to +30.  The scenery was stunning......from frozen lakes, to alpine flowers, to majestic mountains.  It was amazing.

On the way home we went via Cologne in Germany


The Lock Bridge in Cologne

The bridge in Cologne is amazing.  There are hundreds if not thousands of locks that have been put there by members of the public.  Each one has a sentiment on it.  I've never seen anything like it!


'til the next time.............

New Year, New Things to do

Well, I've started this year with some new things that I've made.  The ATC swap with Popular Patchwork started the year with Toys.  I remember when I was a child that it was the simple things that I liked to play with and one of these things was a spinning top...

.........and I finished Charlie's quilt
Here's another challenge quilt that I've finally got back. 
.........til the next time.....keep quilting
