Finally.........(Endlich...)


....blocked the "Trachtentuch" ( a short lace-shawl which is mostly worn with Dirndl-Dresses in Bavaria, Germany). It is for a friend, who will wear a Dirndl at her sisters wedding on Saturday....so it was about time to get it blocked....lol.
She doesn't know about it, so I decided to let Donna (her godchild, my oldest daughter) bring it to her place tomorrow or the day after that as a surprise.
Don't let the background distract you, it's a mattress from the babybed the kids slept in before growing to big for it.....cute, huh?.

...habe ich das Trachtentuch gespannt. Es ist für eine Freundin, die am Samstag zur Hochzeit ihrer Schwester ein Dirndl (oder sowas...) tragen wird......also war es an der Zeit, es zu spannen.
Sie weiß allerdings nichts davon, also wird ihr Patenkind (meine Tochter Donna) es ihr morgen oder übermorgen als Überraschung bringen.
Laßt Euch nicht von dem Hintergrund ablenken, das ist die Matratze aus dem Baby-bett, in dem die Kinder mal geschlafen haben.....süß, gelle?
