Vor 148 Jahren

Vor 148 Jahren: Gestern war ich in einer Gesellschaft, da waren unter fünf Damen drei katholische, welche mit Erlaubnis des Papstes auch sonntags sticken.
Leo Tolstoj (1828-1910)

Cups - not to drink of

They are wall cups! - still not hanging but lying on the floor
of the new kitchen.

And now what to do? I started to make fabric beads - from 
a fabric which was offered to me by DD who bought it in Istanbul.
It has a a very eye-catching shine. I think they sold it to her as silk
but it is probably viscose.
It is slippery so I am working with steam-a-seam (or Wonder-Under)
which is working very well.

Two kinds of blossoms on one tree -

On top wild cherry blossoms and below the Japanese cherry flowers on one tree.
It's looking very charming.
And the cherry blossoms in our garden no. 1 - one week ago
promising a rich crop - if not cold and rain spoiled it all.

Between all travels

...I am sewing a little wallquilt - a lazy one - without turning the edges
- and it is - so sorry - not my own idea - but a Pin from Pinterest

I will finish it - it still needs the binding.
Some colour is needed in the new French kitchen.
