Spring Break in Sunny Greece

10 days in Heavenly Greece

Last fall when Kevin found a great airfare to Greece, I said there would never be time for a spring vacation, as we have two weddings this year.  Megan and Chris are getting married in June – a topic which you’ve probably tired of, and our son Shaun and Deb are getting married in September.

The airfare was too good to resist and we just returned but without a single sewing story.  On most trips I find a wedding or beautiful fabric or textiles to photograph, but this time there were no weddings and no fabric stores.  There was lots of sun, icy blue water and tile roofed villages.  Most of all it was relaxing.

For me, one of the delights of traveling is walking through the local markets smelling fresh meat, fish, fruit and vegetables.  The markets are bustling with people and there’s always something of interest.  I spared you the photo of lamb intestines and other internal organs.  Being there over the Eastern Orthodox Easter was especially fun because of the preponderance of fresh lamb in the markets and to see the holiday customs.

Fresh Lamb, Sausages and Tsoureki

Vacation is over and it’s time to sew.
