Wonderful Copenhagen

I’ve just returned from 4 days in Copenhagen with my pal Julia who flew all the way from Saudi Arabia to meet up with me!  How cool is that!  And the first thing she says “lets go on a hands on sailing trip!”  Here she is looking great and full of energy after very few hours sleep.  We had to do a lot of the hard work ourselves – hoisting sails and so forth and it was great fun.  In truth, it was more of a “drift” than a “sail” as there was so little wind, we had to use the engine to get around!  Definitely well worth doing.

We spent all afternoon and evening at Tivoli, having a great time looking at the gardens and enjoying some lovely food, especially the fabulous Danish open sandwiches and ice cream.

As you might expect, the rest of the time we were chatting about quilting, sewing and going back over old times when we were together in Dhahran.  And, of course, we were out in town shopping for fabric.  I bought some super patterns and a bit of fabric, and a few odds and ends for the house and studio.  I managed to get something for Peter, who looked after the house full of cats, the garden, the housework and all his DIY all on his own, so he didn’t feel too neglected.  It was a really neat cucumber slicer (it cuts the cucumber into a long spiral, great for salads.

Now, sadly, Julie has had to go back to Saudi, but I’m making plans for our next get together, when more of the quilting group from Dhahran can get together for a reunion. I made Julia a quilt to take home with her and she gave me a terrific bag that she’d made, so I have that to remember a smashing break in the sun.
