Lake Garda Postcard

Greetings from Lake Garda!

Here I am admiring the beautiful view of Lake Garda in Italy from a castle balcony and having a good break from sewing!

The view from the castle roof top. It was a long climb up to the top but worth it!

A rainbow appeared while I ate my evening meal out on the terrace of my hotel. You can see the Dolomite mountains overlooking the Lake in the background.

Alpacas are the cutest creatures and their hair make lovely wool for knitting!

Have you had a break from sewing and if so, what did you do?

      Thanks Melissa. Lake Garda is a piece of heaven on earth – the scenery is stunning. Unfortunately, I have not found any fabric shops here but then you have Italian fashion which is the best!

    Gorgeous piccys- and not bad background scenery either! Are those your own light summery creations you are wearing? I bet those graceful swans are feeling a bit upstaged. Watch out! Ciao Bella : )

      Thanks Susan. The weather is so hot here that I had to buy 3 summer dresses as most of the handmade clothing that I brought with me is not cool/light enough to wear in the intense heat. However, “Italians do it better” (i.e. make clothes)!
