I had a nice little surprise yesterday - a visit from my quilting friend Jitka, who lives about 50kms away, but was visiting family in nearby Mikulov. Together with a big group of friends, they had walked the 17km from Mikulov to Valtice, including her youngest daughter who is 5! Go girl! Whilst the rest of the group travelled back to Mikulov by train, Jitka and I had a lovely couple of hours, having a whistle stop tour of Valtice, and a cuppa and a whistle stop tour of my sewing room. Nice as it is to have virtual friends to talk to on t'interweb, it's fantastic to have a friend in person who ooh's and aah's over what you're making, and is actually interested in looking at my Bee blocks (no offense Gordon, but you don't show quite the same enthusiasm!) We are meeting up again in a couple of moths (with Vera) to try to put together our quilt for the Prague Patchwork Exhibition.
In the absence of photos from yesterday, how about this one?
Well that's it for me for this evening. We've just been to the pictures to see the James Hunt/Nikki Lauda film - Rush. Very good indeed - I'd recommend it, even if you're not a racing fanatic. Hope you all had a good weekend and are looking forward to the week ahead.
