It is looking up!

So first of all I must say that the hail started AFTER I got home today. Only by 5 seconds, but it didn't hit me. So how great is that after a wonderful, wonderful weekend in Munich?! I'm a little tired from all the walking we did, but it's a good tired. Jenny had mapped out all the craft shops we needed to visit. So we walked, and walked, and walked until we saw almost everything on the list, plus all the gorgeous historical buildings as well.
Here are a couple pictures I took at Marienplatz.



Don't you just the frog in the wirework?



And at the quilt shop we visited I HAD to pick up a fat quarter pack of this lovely line...



And as promised here is my most recent quilt. It's the zig zag quilt that I started a couple of weeks ago. Not only is it beautiful (like everything I make...) but it's the fastest that i've finished a quilt, EVER!!! So I have to show more pictures than usual. Also to show off the lovely antique sewing machine that sits in the living room....

I'm glad you had fun in Munich! I can't wait to see the quilt, I love the white on it. For a sec I thought you were sewing on that old singer and was really confused. I am a dumb blond!

Beautiful quilt!!! Love the rainbow colours and the quilting you did.

That's a beautiful, rainbow-y zigzag quilt ! The squiggly quilting is great !

And I just love how you worked your blog's name into the photo of the sewing machine. I am a huge fan of the old Singers and do most of my quilt-making on one like that.
