photos from alicante

Last week we went for a day to Alicante. This city is a small mystery to me – every time I go back it is like going there for the first time. Even though I know Alicante for 20 years now, there is always something new to see each time I go back. The marina and wonderful beaches, the avenues that invite for a stroll, the parks and plazas with centenary ficus trees that give a perfect shade and coolness in the summer, the castle of Santa Barbara with a panoramic view. Not to forget the bars, cafes and restaurants as well as great shops!

Thanks for stopping, have a wonderful Sunday and a good start into the new week!


Sewing Weekend – 2 Tops Ready for Free-Motion Quilting

Time is flying fast and I did not find spare time for writing the blog, but was nevertheless hard-working (or hard-sewing) over the weekend. I have finished 2 tops and they are now ready for free-motion quilting.

Last Friday my husband and me went to Alicante for the afternoon. And by this occasion we visited the local patchwork shop and I spent some money on fabrics (what else!?).

Next time some pics from my progress with free-motion quilting.

There is a lot of cold air coming, the temperatures shall drop well down, so this is and ideal time to sit behind the sewing machine.

Happy quilting, Barbora
