A break at Whitsun

DH and I travelled to Germany for a little break and enjoyed three sunny days at a lovely hotel. We enjoyed a good breakfast, a lovely dinner at a terrace, a boattrip across the Rhein and sore feet LOL  And, surprise, no time to knit or stitch, apart from the knitting I did during the car ride. This is a 'before' picture (one repeat), I have now three repeats done.
We did do something quiltrelated though, we (read: I) visited two quiltshops, *click at the pictures*

and purchased a few FQ's and a lovely yarn.
When we got home I did stitch almost all day, so I have to show you the result of VHRH in the sun! Block 10 almost done!
As I use to do here are some pictures of our trip. 
This lady and I have something in common: sore feet!
After a good breakfast we are ready for a long day of sightseeing.
We also did a boattrip on Rhein and Mosel, a convenient way to see things without having to walk LOL

Kijk Joke, das nog eens een zonnig tripje.
Was je ziek?
Geen gehandwerk???
Ik zie je genieten, wat een heerlijke boottocht.
Toch maar in de auto weer breien, je bent me der eentje.
Het ziet er goed uit en ook je nieuwe aankopen.
Mooie kleur wol.
Ik ben blij dat je er weer bent.
Liefs Chrissie

It looks lovely, Joke. I love the pics on the river. They're awesome. And they bring back very fond memories. Thanks for that. The crochet (knitting?) is lovely. I like that color blue. And they yarn and fat quarters you bought are beautiful too. Grats on the acquisitions.

LOL, no knitting in Germany! Your new adventure on your needles looks already great.
Your embroidery is going fast forward.
I love your holiday pictures, it looks great. Also the quiltshopsare "Toll" and your purchases are stunning. I love the pink (lace?) yarn, do you already have a pattern to go with this lovely pink?
A big hug, Pauline
