After a few very busy days in scorching heat, we spent yesterday resting our tired bones in much cooler air not doing very much at all. A little time spent at the stables, followed by a glass of ‘bubbly’ eating scones and then some gentle crochet. Just perfect!
Soon I will have to pack my case, say a sad farewell to Claudia and then hop on another plane. Another chapter of my adventure begins with a flight to Amsterdam where I will spend two days with my lovely and creative Instagram friend Marianne (@marrose-ccc.com).
Last weekend I travelled to Schwabsburg, near Oppenheim in Germany. A beautiful picturesque small town in Rheinland/Pfalz, very close to the mighty river Rhein and surrounded by vineyards, that produce the most delicious of wines.
I had been invited way back when by the lovely Claudia of Wollsinn Yarnsto teach a couple of workshops at the Schwabsburger Wollfest. All preparation complete, I set off from Wales last Friday early and spent a wonderful weekend surrounded by beautiful yarn and lovely people.
Here are my Impressions:
Oppenheim Market Square
Claudia – the Organiser
One of my Fair Isle Workshops
…and look what came home with me thanks to my lovely hosts…
