1. If you know me well, you know I collect bottle caps. I love the colors and graphics. I drill holes in them with my handy Dremel and sometimes stitch them on art quilts. Much to hubby's amusement, I kept my eyes peeled for these tossed treasures. I had to be careful though. A sudden stop to pick up a bottle cap could cause a chain reaction crash of people walking behind me!
2. While on the trip, I met a fellow quilter from New Zealand. When she travels, she carries fabric or mini quilts to give to any quilters she might happen to meet. Isn't that a great idea? I was the fortunate recipient of these little quiltlets she's made using New Zealand fabrics. What a treasure!
3. While walking around Lucerne, Switzerland, we came across a museum with a special showing of Hans Erni's art. Unfortunately, the museum was closed that day, I was able to score this card featuring one of his pieces. I love this portrait!
Such an unusual pose, and the background is so interesting!
4. On the last night of the river cruise, we found these sheer red bags of chocolates on our pillows. The candy is long gone (it was delish!), but I had to bring home these little bags. They'll make it into one of my art quilts, I'm sure!
