Last Thursday I came back home from Prague. I left the city in rain, had one day with full sunshine and since yesterday we have here also rainy weather. As we have had hardly any rain since November we are really happy to see some water come down from the sky. This gave me also time to sort all the photos I have taken. Here a collage with cloudy impressions of the city, on the biggest photo is Charles Bridge over the river Vltava.
We have visited the historical Colloredo-Mansfeld Palace situated next to Charles Bridge that is a part of the Prague Gallery. The palace is worth visiting as it is in a very original state, with hardly any changes made over the centuries.
And as last some photos from Prague 6, with its green spaces, parks and a village atmosphere.
Next time a quilting post, have a nice Sunday, Barbora
Last friday my mum and me went for a day trip to the town of Kutna Hora, about 60 miles east of Prague. The day was full of discoveries, magic places and history. The originally gothic Cathedral of St. Barbara :
A short walk to the historical town centre passing the Jesuit College and a wonderful view of the church of St. James. Next to the statues there is a vineyard. We we lucky with the weather, it was a sunny day until we went back. Prague welcomed us with heavy rain and storm.
Cute little lanes and streets in the historical part around the main square.
The original stone well for water supply in the middle ages.
Detail of the ossuary in the nearby village of Sedlec :
This is all for the moment, next time some more impressions from Prague. Thanks for stopping, enjoy the rest of Sunday, Barbora
Even though I left Prague many, many years ago, it is still my favorite city and I always love to come back, Walk through the historic quarters, visit cultural events and meet friends. So why write to many words – here some photos :
Moldau river in the front, Kampa Park behind and Petrin Park on the hill with a small copy of the Eifel Tower build right at the top. A few impressions of the Lesser Town (Mala Strana) situated under the Prague Castle.
I have taken last photos in the passage of Adria Palace which is on the Corner of Narodni and Jungmanova streets.
I am enjoying the time with my Mum and quilting can wait. The weather in Prague is very warm for this time of the year and we have had a lot of sunshine.
Thanks for visiting, until next time and enjoy life, Barbora
I am still taking some time of from quilting to get my brand new toy (mac and ipad) into the right shape. Nevertheless I do go dog walking every morning. Sometimes I see motifs that I want to capture with my camera. My dog is always a favorite :
The other morning I took a look around myself and I saw all the things that come with a modern life : masts for electricity cables or mobile phone antennas and graffiti. This all is part of our lives, the price we pay for civilization and communication. The landscapes change, more and more man-made elements take over the nature.
But I love the area where we live – it is near the Mediterranean sea, with mild climate in the winter, hardly any industry with pollution and 3 bigger cities half an hour away by car.
Enjoy your weekend, thanks for stopping, Barbora
After holidays and a few computer and internet free days I have finally started with a new quilt. Actually this one I wanted to make last summer, but never found the time. All bits are cut out and I have started piecing. More in next post.
On New Years Day we made a short trip to Mar Menor in the Murcia region, visited San Pedro del Pinatar and Lo Pagan. The weather was sunny and we had a wonderful piece of cake and coffee on a café terrace.

Hope you all have had a wonderful 2013 and all the best for 2014. Thanks for stopping, Barbora
