midsummernightsdream

 
 four weeks ago i had my first birthday starting with "6"...
some of my friends gifted me with an Invitation to an open air summer Theater at the ammersee.
 
vor vier Wochen bin ich in ein neues jahrzehnt gerutscht... jetzt also mit einer "6" vorne...
von freunden bekam ich eine Einladung zum Sommertheater an der Seebühne in utting am ammersee - wir fuhren letzten donnerstag gemeinsam hin:
 

 
the weather was instable last week and we hoped
the peformance would not be cancelled,
but there was no rain in the evening.
we also could hold our picnic at the shore of the lake,
with salads, pretzels, beer and all you need...
 
wir zitterten wegen dem wetter...
aber die tagesvorhersage war dann: kein regen ab 18.00,
und so kam es dann auch.
wir konnten prima unser picknick vor der Vorstellung machen -
direkt am see. mit Salaten, Brezen, Bier und was man halt so braucht...
 
 
and birthday cake for Dessert:)
 
und zum abschluss noch einen Geburtstagskuchen:) 

 
the first "mechanicals" for the Play arrived...
 
dann kamen auch schon die Fahrzeuge der "Handwerker"
aus dem Theaterstück angezockelt...
 
 
the Performance was wonderful and very amusing.
good actors and Dresses of Fantasy.
 
die Aufführung war sehr schön und auch total amüsant.
klasse schauspieler und fantasievolle gewänder.
 
(well, Smartphone zooms are not really good,
but it was just to have an Impression)
 
evening Impression at the lake in the break short after 21.00
 
abendstimmung in der pause... kurz nach 21.00
 
~~~~~~~~~~
and here´s what i stitched last week:
two more drip mats;)
 
und ganz faul war ich auch nicht:
zwei weitere untersetzer sind entstanden...
die Motive drucke ich mit weißer setacolor Stofffarbe
auf den dunkelblauen stoff

  1. Happy belated birthday! It looks like you had a wonderful time at the open air summer theatre, it was a fantastic present 😀. It looked like the perfect evening to me with that delicious picnic and beer - oh how I would love to try one of those pretzels 😁. The performance and costumes look amazing, it must have been so much fun to watch 😀. Your stamps look beautiful on the mats and as always your stitching finishes the pieces beautifully! Wishing you a very Happy T Day! J 😊

  4. Very impressed with your birthday celebration and how wonderful your friends gave you such a welcome and enjoyable gift. Food and drink, too. What more could you ask for? It looked like a wonderful time for all of you.

    I am in LOVE with that bicycle. You put it to extremely good use. I adore both, but the bicycle is possibly my all time favorite of all the pieces you've made. Great recycling and great stamping.

    Thanks for sharing your birthday celebration, the play, your friends, the cake, the food, and the beer for T this week.

  5. Happy Birthday! It looks like you had a magical celebration. :)

    I like the drip mats that you made. Am I correct in thinking that you used your sun printed fabric that you made earlier in the summer?

    Happy T Day!

  7. zu schön, wenn man draußen so eine vorstellung mit picknick und feinen getränken genießen kann. das ist sommer!! der hat sich hier allerdings gerade verzogen...
    deine untersetzer sind unglaublich schön, auch die vom letzten post (den blogger mir frecherweise nicht angezeigt hatte!). ich selbst bin im moment ein bisschen faul in sachen stickerei, hab gerade eher papier in der mache. das macht aber auch viel spaß!
    dir nachträglich herzlichen glückwunsch zum geburtstag!!

  11. Wie schön deine kunstvollen Untersetzer in Wirklichkeit sind, kann man erst sehen und fühlen, wenn man sie in den Händen hält. So wie ich gestern, als deine liebe Überraschungspost bei mir eintraf... dank dir so sehr für Fahrrad, Mond und Sterne!
    Ein Lichtblick bei dem Regenwetter.
    Eine tolle Stimmung am Ammersee!
    Liebe Grüße Ulrike

  22. What good friends you have to give you such a lovely treat. Looked like an unusual and entertaining outing.
    Your coffee mats are so original and interesting, I don't think I could put a coffee mug on one of these, I would admire it instead.
