I've been AWOL for two weeks because we were gone on an adventure! We went to Europe and explored Amsterdam, Brussels, Cologne, Aachen, and Leipzig. Dick took hundreds of photos, and I even took a few. I don't have any stitching to show, and even though I did a fair bit of knitting on the plane and train, I think you'd rather see a couple of photos from the Lace and Costume Museum in Brussels. Lace and chocolate are part of my memories from this city, and there were many shops everywhere for both.
Here are someone's bobbins all set up for creating some beautiful lace. I can't imagine trying to follow that kind of pattern.
This little doll is hard at work, and you can see the amazing piece behind her. Both were on display in a shop window.
This was just one of many pieces in the museum. There was no way to photograph all of them! There also was an exhibit of clothing from the thirties that was very interesting. This dress caught my eye. Another featured under garments, including girdles. Do any of you remember those?!
Other photos are on my blog, but I thought you'd enjoy some of these the most. I have lots of catching up to do with UFOs but don't even feel guilty. Our trip was too much fun! Have a great week!
