Since living for so long in south-east Spain, near the Mediterranean Sea, we hardly ever see snow. In all the 20 years we had snow just once – on the mountain tops approx. 30 km in land. And it stayed only for a day. Snow is like a coin for me : on one side I am fascinated with this white layer of something magical; on the other side I hate it – it is cold and wet.
Anyway, I could not resist to take some more photos.
Hope this snow will melt quickly and warm spring will soon take over from winter!
Thanks for visiting, Barbora
Over the last few weeks we had some nice warm weather and sunshine, still cold at night, but spring was in the air. All this has changed in the moment I landed in Prague. I left Alicante with some nice 20-22º C in the daytime and Prague welcomed me with a fresh layer of snow and minus temperatures. I must admit that we still officially have winter – for another few days.
I am enjoying my stay here, my Mum is as happy to have me here as I am. We have a lot to do, meet family and friends, do some shopping. This time I didn’t buy any more fabrics to boost my stash. I have only brought quilting threads from Gütterman and Mettler, but in a large variety of colors. They are for practicing and learning free-motion quilting with the Skill Builder Block of the Month by Pile of Fabric. I am taking a break from sewing so that I can start with new energy when I am back at home. Hopefully my ordered fabrics have arrived by then from the UK.
Happy Sunday, thanks for stopping,
Yesterday I came back home from Prague. I sorted out the pictures I made and would like to share my impressions of the city (or the neighborhood area where I used to live). This is not far away from the castle Hradcany, but not many tourist come to see these secluded spots.
The above picture is a caption in the park Kampa, near the Moldau river. A happy guy was drinking wine and sleeping his siesta.
Whilst my stay in the Czech Republic we also went to the summer-house of my uncle Ales and I discovered a nice portrait of my grandmother painted by my grandfather.
Now it is time to get back to my patchwork and quilting projects, the sewing machine is already waiting. I also had some time for fabric shopping – more about new stash in my next post
