The sidewalks here are cobblestones, and many of the businesses have a design worked in pebbles denoting their trade. Gee, wonder what they do here?

Just the first of many pictures uploaded today, thefirstday of thequiltshow--excuse me, Carrefour du Patchwork Europeen--in Sainte-Marie-aux-Mines, inAlsace. What an amazing event! It's spread over 4 villages, over 20 venues, some of which have several different exhibits.
We went to one that featured work by aSwiss artist, Australian designers, Libby Lehman, and several others. I took lots of pictures to help me remember. Another,featuring Canadian quilts, was hung in a beautiful church.
We go back tomorrow. I just hope my body will hold up so I can enjoy more of it! I figure I'll forget the aches,pains, and hurts, but I'll remember this experience!
PS, so far I haven't bought anything. Don't know if this is a good thing or a bad thing...
