Saturday's Class

The weather was really lovely on Saturday morning, like a summers day with temperature in the mid 20's. As Sara had gone to Spain with her grandad to have a go at skiing, yes we allowed her to go. She is home safe and sound and no broken bones!
So I went down into Lisbon on Saturday morning to see craft fair market which takes place at the beginning of each month in the Jardim de Estrela. I could only take these 2 photos of the fair, from a distance, as people don't like you taking pictures of their work.

And of course I had to take a picture of the trams which still exist in Lisbon.
Then in the afternoon I went over the river to Laranjeiras, which this Saturday was showing the ladies how to do Cathedral windows. I only managed to get a photo of Sofia's, as Carmen had left before I got a chance to take a photo.And Manuela who had already done Cathedral windows on another occasion decided she wanted to make a thread catcher/pincushion. Here it is almost finished. Just missing the buttons to be sewn on and the cushion filled up with sand, from the nearby beach of course.
All in all it was a lovely weekend, made especially nice with the return of our daughter Sara safe and sound.
