Yesterday we had a day out in Brno. We started by going back to the hotel where we had our Christmas party, to reclaim the un-opened bottles of wine that the hotel would not refund us! Then we got a bit lost getting back into the city centre, and lo and behold, we found ourselves very close to the only decent fabric shop in the area! They only stock Makower fabrics, and I knew they had the new "Henna" range in. It is absolutley gorgeous - the colours are like jewels and the fabric is so smooth and almost has a shimmer to it, it is that soft. I'm afraid I couldn't resist.
The green is for the back of my stitch tease quilt, the pink is the binding.
We then went on into the city to the Christmas market
After that, we walked up to the Annapurna restaurant for a curry
In England, all towns, and even many villages have at least one curry restaurant, so we take it for granted. In czech, they are pretty rare, so this was a real Christmas treat for us!
And then to top off the day, we went to see the second part of the Hobbit. It was the first 3D film I've ever watched, and I was not too thrilled with it. It made be feel slightly sick, and I felt I needed to sit much, much further away. The film itself was pretty good though.
So that's it for me now. I'm shutting off my computer for a couple of days, so I'll wish you a Merry Christmas and all that jazz!
