First things first. I must share new photo's of our latest addition to the family - Theo John Michel Dechief. Yes. I keep putting his whole name, but I love the sound.
Afraid I'm having real problems with Typepad today. None of the photos and text are going where I want them. Sorry about this mess.
My hosts, Bohdana and Mirek, were truly amazing. They made sure I saw as many places in Prague as I could in the short time I was there.
They knew I love Art Nouveau. For those of you who have been to Prague you know what a breathtakingly beautiful city it is filled with Art Nouveau style architecture.
The building to the left, I hope it is on the left, is one of those amazing Art Nouveau places.
Bohdana and Mirek took me to the Mucha Museum, where I learned that he started drawing beautifully at the young age of 7.
Below is a photo of Bohdana and Mirek in their lovely home. The quilt behind Bohdana is one she did for Bernina. Like me, she loves Bernina sewing machines and is one of their top educators for eastern Europe.
Don't ask me what happened to the photo quality. It was perfect in Photoshop, but certainly didn't translate well here.
Nine fantastically talented doll makers were in the class. Most speak little English so Bohdana arranged for an interpreter. Dana isn't in the picture as she was taking it, but she also owns a quilt shop so knew what I was talking about and was an excellent interpreter.
This is just a short post on my wonderful time in Rixensart, Belgium with our new grandson, and my amazing time in Prague.
I am so blessed to have the opportunity to travel and share my love of doll making, and to see my children and grandchildren as often as I do. That is also one reason John and I will be moving from California next year. We want to be closer to our grandchildren and California is simply too far away.
Until next time, God Bless and keep you,
