Neuschwanstein Castle - seite drei


Und wir haben Schloss Neuschwanstein, with (mit) much (sehr) more of the castle (schloss) completed. This castle is being done in layers, with many of the towers being two (zwei) to four (vier) layers of interfacing thick. The towers (turm) that are not completed are a different layer than the brownish red charlottes that is in between them. The stone colour (farben) around the door (tur) is also a different layer. The outline that you see in red (rot) is placement lines for some of the trees (baum) that will be in front of the castle.
Not far from the castle is the great Bavarian town of Garmisch-Partenkirchen, where I learned that I don't care for skiing on the Zugspitze. When you are skiing for the first time - yes, even on what they considered the "bunny hills" - and you fall; when instructors kick their skis off and come running to see how you are, you know that you should be really hurt (I was) and that you don't belong on skis. I spent the remainder of my ski week in the resturant "Sonn Alpin" with Colonel Check, drinking hot spiced wine and expressing our dislike for skiing.

Wow! this is fantastic! I still find it tough to bead embroider without everything puckering up.

Sarah - That's why I like interfacing material (such as Pellon). It is still enough not to pucker.

If I am using fabric, I will used fusible web to adhere the fabric to the interfacing. Works great.

Thanks for stopping by and leaving a message.

Oh Neuschwanstein! Das ist interessant. If you are looking for a few sentences in German for your blog while beading this Schloss, just ask me. ;)
