first impressions

My first trip to Szczecin / Poland went much better than we hoped. Weather was nice - everbody knows how important that is for feeling well :-)
The wife of the former senior officier showed me the town and we visited the big shopping mall "Galaxy" and spent a nice time in "Cafè 22". It is located at the 22th floor of the Radisson Hotel and we had a fantastic view over the town. My first step into the Polish market scene was very interesting and I loved the mushrooms and vegetables - yummy
Two invitations later we collected some experiences from our hosts.
A visit in a Polish restaurant - a real log cabin!- was delicious.
Today we visited a house, we want to rent afer my move. We felt in love immediatly!
It is built in 1900 and in a very good shape and good located.

Pictures not before Saturday, sorry dear visitors

life got in the way

dear visitors,
DH move to Szczecin/Poland last week and my preparation to visit him on Thursday took much more attention (and power) than I expected.
YES, I did some beading together with my friend Sabine - but not enough for the ideas I have in my mind after the BEADING RETREAT at the first weekend of October.

That's my first try with the Swaroski "Rivoli" framed in Square-Stitch. Thank you Regine, your instructions are GREAT!

The bracelet is the result of a Right-Angle-Weave-workshop I visited by Mara.
this is a detail
Before I leave for a little more than one week I'll show my newest beaded projects.

take care

If possible I'll write from Poland ...
