Last weekend Di aka Quiltova and I went off on a little jaunt….and we flew off to visit Marrakech in Morocco. You may know Annabella, who lives there and who we ‘knew’ through various bees, most notably Stitch Tease. Here we are with Annabella’s first Stitch Tease quilt…..
If you ever get the chance to visit Marrakech please take it. It is a fabulous city with a 500 year old souk, ancient palaces and madrassas, hidden gardens, scents of orange blossom and other less appetizing things, spices and pointy toed slippers…and don’t forget lots of couscous and tagines. Quiltova and I had a fabulous time exploring and getting to know Annabella, her son Zaki and husband Youssef as well as her mum, who was over visiting from England. We stayed in Annabella and Youssef’s lovely little riad right in the Medina!
Here are just a few of the sights of our weekend. Only three hours from Switzerland and yet soooooo different.
Normal life has now been resumed and I’m slowly coming back down to earth.
Thanks girls for a fabulous weekend!
