This August I was a lazy lazy blogger. But you know when to stop working with delicate fibers when your thread clings to your fingers because it's simply to hot to keep them dry. And you know what? It's ok to let loose. That's what summer is for. Go outside, visit family and friends, make yourself happy with the abundance the outside gives in summer.
I took these pictures on our hort trip to my mothers place at the lake of constance. It's the connection point of the three countries Austria, Germany and Switzerland. You can walk from the city of Constance to Kreuzlingen which is in Switzerland. I find it very amusing hopping over the border and back.
We took a ship tour on the lake......
I have been quiet lately and this has something to do with the fact, THAT WE ARE MOVING!
I'm so excited. It's the first time since 10 years that I move to another place again. As someone who used to move every 2 years before I settled here, this is quite a long time at one place.
So we were looking for houses since last year and during that time high hopes, disappointment, frustration and strength made their appearance in this small family of mine. At some point I decided it was enough and I couldn't take it anymore. And then it happened: We got an opportunity to move to a new place - not our own house but even better. Our new place is in the rural area of Eastern Germany, an hour drive away......
I'm back from my 3 day retreat in rural North Eastern Germany. I love it there and the easter bunnies came from the north pole this year, since there was EVERYTHING covered in snow. Imagine driving in the driveway and there is NO single human footprint on the whole property. It looked quite different when we left after 3 days. I took a ton of photos of natural structures and textures. Some of these will perhaps become some new embroidery or knitting patterns.

We had a fire stove over there and after 1 day heating the house up it actually stayed really warm over night. We were lucky to bring our huge heavy quilt I made last year. It has totally proven to be warm enough......
