What a weekend in Karlsruhe.
Although I planned to drive with my cabrio car open I had to drive closed because of rain. But in Karlsruhe sun was laughing.
Kasia and I met in the Novotel hotel in downtown. Not easy to find because of a city full with road works.
After a dose of coffein we went to the fairground a little bit outside Karlsruhe.
I wanted to take many nice pictures of fair booths and quilts. Unfortunately I left the camery at home. No problem I thought, lets take the smartphone cam.
But I have to admit I am a noob.
I found the camera app on my phone and took tons of really impressing pictures but …. I even asked the booth owners for their permission.
But when back at home I had to realize only the last picture was there.
I didn’t know I had to push the OK button after each single photo to store it.
This is the one and only. It is symptomatic for my visit as most of my time I spend here. Sure the people there know me now by name …
They had the Sashiko there. This machine has only one stitch, this one:
The lady from Babylock was really patient with me, and I could take home my test stitches to bridge the time to when I have my own machine.
This will take a while. Nevertheless my favourite Machine dealer Thomas Sommer is already ready to get one machine for me.
Of course there was also plenty of beautiful fabrics.
The pink green package will be for my next quilt…
Still thinking what to do with this treasury.
Did I mentioned I bought fabrics???
I also met Désirée from Stoffzauber who had here dog with her. And the most beautiful booth (that I could show you if I knew how to save my pictures).
The blue package is for a new door wreath. The fabrics to the right are for the dining room bench. The little black box is for powder chalk to transfer quilt patterns.
Kasia and me had a great evening in Karlsruhe. We had some Pasta and walked around the closed Karlsruhe Zoo.
The night was terrible. The downtonw noise for me country bumpkin was beyond all bearing. Where I live you only hear the cats or owl at night.
Nevertheless I enjoyed the second day as well. Now I discovered everything alone since Kasia had to give lessons. So when you plan to do professionel free hand applying you should not miss Kasia’s course. I spend there 20 minutes only as a guest and learned that much …
This was an really exciting weekend.
