Very cold over here!
Went for a day trip to Ratzeburg...bit of a trip down memory lane as I used to spent many summer holidays here at my aunt's place. Took only a few photos with my phone as my hands were freezing cold. It's about 2 degrees here at the moment.
Still have not found a quilt shop...instead spending lots of time on the Christmas markets drinking Gluehwein...
Missing my sewing in the evening.

Have not been on the blog recently as I had been trying to finish off my Disappearing Four Patch...we are off to Europe this evening and I really thought that I would manage to knock this off. That was until I encountered the rippling effect in the inner border. Could not believe it!
Well, of course, I set about to fix this. Even worked out what the problem was. I had used the wrong bobbin thread with the Monofilament thread in the top which affected the overall tension. Yep, this is what happens when you try to do things in a hurry. Re-did the inner border and subsequently have to re-do also the outer border. This will now have to wait until we come back in the new year.
Have still not packed...old habits die hard. I am one of those who packs in the last minute. We are going to Germany to visit my family. My blog may become a travel blog over the next month if I am able to upload some photos...we'll see. I have not been home for the past 23 years, so this should be interesting.
