Returning to the blossoming - Eine Reise in den Sommer

So I'm back again, safe and sound - but haunted by urgent obligations like a broken car (there is no way to get anywhere from here without it), an 'exploding' garden (not only the blossoms but the weeds too) and a trip to Vienna (the last one before summer) for the weekend!

I'm sorry to keep you waiting, still - and to be honest, it'll take until next week until life gets a bit more normal again and I can reply to mails and read your postings ...

Some pictures of what has happened to my garden during this single week:



The apple trees, the cherry trees, the plum trees are blossoming, the daffodils too, the lavender is growing ...



I haven't even unpacked all the treasures I found in Stockholm yet - but these are some - mostly silk - bobbins I found in my mother's cellar:



I guess they will be just great, both for stitching as for plying ...!

(German summary: Ich bin zurück, alles bestens, nur leider diese Woche noch sehr im Stress - kaputtes Auto, Wien-reise, Dringlichkeiten im Garten - es wird wohl bis nächste Woche dauern, bis sich alles wieder etwas normalisiert hat und ich mails beantworten, Bloggs lesen und etwas arbeiten kann ...)

That's such an amazing find. My mother couldn't even sew on a button so no chance of discovering anything like that for me!

Thank you, Clare, Carolyne, Rita!

On one of the bobbins I even found the year: 1936 - that's pre-WWII!

I'll be back next week!
