Inspired in Germany


We have just come back from a wonderful weekend break in the South of Germany.  Although it was only for a such a short time we saw some lovely sights and I have come home inspired!


The town of Konstanz is on the boarder with Switzerland and was all that you would expect from a Germany town built circ 1400.  These are just two of the photos that we took.  The building were painted to emphasise the square blocks.

This old door was typical of the heavy doors that we saw, with beautiful iron work.

We also took the train to the Rhein Falls.  This photo does not do it justice, but hopefully you will get an idea of the volumn of water and the noise!!  It was incredible.  We did managed to get quite close to the water,, but because of the snow we were unable to get to the lowest level, maybe next time!

Now to get my ideas out of my head and into fabric (via a sketchbook Sue!!) I will keep you up-dated of my progress.
