Back from Heidelberg

We spent three days in one the most romantic German cities according to all travel guides.
This is what's left of the Heidelberg castle.
The next view is taken from the "Philosophenweg". And this is the statue of Prince Elector Carl Theodore, on the old bridge, under the most irreverent gull I've ever met...
I must confess that one of the main objects of this little trip was to visit the 3rd European Quilt Triennal in the Max Berg Textile Museum, a very nice exhibition of 36 selected quilts. Linda Colsh won the first prize with a beautiful, but dark and sad quilt.
And then, yesterday, we met Kristin La Flamme in the small gallery where she's having her solo show "Impressions of Germany". Her quilts are even nicer in real than on her blog. I like this mixture of traditional construction and contemporary feel.

That statue looks like he's looking upwards in frustration at the seagull.

Have a great New Year, Francoise.

Welcome back Francoise. I'm just catching up after a week offline and wanted to say that I think your book cover is very classy.
