I haven't been stitching much recently, life has been very busy and sometimes sad.  At the end of September, we had our Guild retreat in Ellenton, Florida, and that was a fun weekend.  I did do some stitching then of course, but there is nothing yet to show from that.  I set up some applique, started a new pieced pattern, and generally enjoyed the company of like-minded ladies.
I am sharing a few more photos of our trip to Birkenhoerdt in September, most of these are from Alsace/Wissembourg, plus  a few villages surrounding our own. The time for these flowers has passed now, and the late autumn is bringing colder weather. 
Our adorable little house, just can't resist taking pictures.  I am hoping to put up shutters once the grouting has been redone.  I was thinking that the plaque in the middle would make shutters impossible, but I have seen some that fold back on themselves if there is only space on one side, so I will be looking at those.

St Gallus - "Ana Selbdritt" about 1500

All the above photos are impressions of Wissembourg
