Then, on my return, I have spent the last few days working very hard to finish some quilts for my exhibition at the Carrefour du Patchwork in France - there was a deadline for sending images for the catalogue.
Here are some first impressions of Prague. We were very lucky with the weather, which was mostly warm and sunny - just like the last few days in Britain.
Charles Bridge is one of the best known features of the city. It was the first, and for a long time the only one, bridge over the river Vlatava. It is adorned with statues of saints, and has a tower and arch at each end. It is also full of tourists and street sellers!
There are beautiful views from the bridge.
We walked along the small crowded streets of the Old City to the main square. The towers of St Mary's Church are beautiful.
The Astronomical Clock is quite a magnet, attracting crowds of visitors.
On the other side of the river, Prague Castle is an important feature of the city. We spent quite a lot of time there; within it is St Vitus' Cathedral, a fascinating gothic building with the most amazing stained glass windows.
Next time I will show some stained glass windows and their amazing colours. For now, I leave off with a view of Prague from the Castle.
Good night, and thanks for visiting.
