On a pilgrimage

I came back home last week from Iceland, went for a weekend to Rotterdam and tomorrow I'm going on a Pilgrimage Tour to Rome. I will show you some pictures when I get back.

But what I brought back from Iceland was this seaweed,
 which I'm going to try to get some dye from,
Isn't it pretty? and the smell, now filling my cellar -  wow, wonderful.

I had this top quilted by a Long Arm, 
as I did not want to spend more time on this quilt.

I'm working on my second block for Sweet Nostalgia, 
selecting fabric for CWB block no. 11
and doing some hexagons for my Flower Garden.

One picture from Iceland, 
from the mountain called ESJA
I love hiking up there and enjoy the view to Reykjavík
unfortunately it was a bit cloudy that day.

Until next time
Happy stitching

Color from seaweed, interesting, I will watch your posts to see how that goes. The view from the mountian top is lovely. Like your little quilt also.

Your finished quilt is lovely. Now you will have to give us a report on the dye.
Speaking of dye, my husband brought home a big bunch of bananas and hung them on a stand on the diningroom table. A few days later I found a large black puddle underneath. It seems there was one rotten banana in the middle of the bunch and it was dripping juice. I didn't think of bananas as dye material but I have tried and tried and can not get that stain out of my table cloth!
