Crystals on Water

Posted in Uncategorized at 10:16 pm by knotsincotton

Hope everyone is having a great weekend. 😀

Yesterday evening the Good Husband suggested going to Passau today to have a look around.  It’s quite a pretty city and they have loads of interesting shops too! 😉 What makes Passau ‘special’ is that three rivers meet there: the Danube, the Inn and the Ilz. As you can imagine, there are lots of riverboats and lots of tourists!

Like I said, there were a lot of riverboats but this one was an eyecatcher! It’s called ‘Kristallschiff’ (Crystal Ship) and has a huge arch made of Swarovski crystals on every side.

Work on the Bent Creek Snowman Stocking is coming along nicely. The overdyed thread gives it an aged and worn look that I really like.  If you look closely you can see the variation in colour.

Tomorrow promises to be a quiet day so hopefully I can get a good couple of hours worth of stitching done.
