I have just got back from  vacation.  As usual we spent time in  our home in Germany, just on the border with Alsace, France.  I had hoped for better weather, but the first week was very rainy and cold.  The last few days, however, were sunny and warm, just in time for us to leave !  I only stitched on one of the days, because we were finishing up some things in the house, going to wine festivals, and generally sightseeing.  Although I do not want this to turn into a travel blog, I thought you might enjoy some photos.  I love the style of houses in this region, so here is a selection of Southern Wine Route homes and Alsatian ones.

And just for luck, some lavender stuck in our old barn door.
