For years I use my own shopping bag, but now, since we have to pay for the plastic ones, lots of people use nice shopping bags. Love the fabric from this one.
I made the bottom and handles from canvas and put some lining in.
And then I went for shopping!!
Two weeks ago I spend a weekend at a friend who lives in Marathea, close to Gytheion. She lives on top of a hill and you can see the sea from the terrace.
It is a beautiful view and in the evening you can see the lights from other sides of the bay. She planted a lot of trees, olive trees, other fruit trees, cypresses. This is a wild one, I think they call it prunari. It is a shrub and the whole hill is covered in it. When you prune it you can make it into a nice tree.
Last year I made her some cushion covers to match the tiles and garden.
She has a lovely stone house and we had a great weekend together!
This weekend I stayed home and worked on an idea for a quilt to participate in the exhibition of the Hellenic Patchwork Guild and after that maybe in the exhibition of the European Quilt Association next year!!! Who knows!! A lot of thinking and working to be done! Have to keep my head cool in this heat!!!
