Time has flown by again and here we are halfway through September.  I had posted some photos and a short report about the Streisselhochzeit in Seebach, but for some reason the photos did not show properly and I deleted it.  I will post a few photos here.

As far as stitching goes, I am plugging away at my boutis, but not making much progress.  I have some applique projects in the works, and on Sunday made a tablerunner with pumpkins, there is a lot of stitchery still to do on that before it's finished.  I also have a paper piecing project, which I hope to get lots done on next week when I go to a retreat.

Pumpkins tablerunner, lots more to add on this one

Now to lookat some photos from Alsace.  I really did enjoy the day, it was beautiful weather and such interesting costumes and traditions.

Seebach and Hunspach are always worth a visit if you are in the area.
