Out & About: EPM in Alsace, lots of lovely scenery

Sunburst at sunset over the vineyards at St Hippolyte
I’m just back from a fabulous four days at the European Patchwork Meeting in Alsace.  It was a great time: the work was stunning and very varied; I met up with some people I knew and met some lovely new ones; and it was hot and sunny!
St Hippolyte
I have still to process all of what I saw, as well as the 600+ photos I took, so in the meantime, here are some of the ones I took of the beautiful scenery.  I was staying in the village of St Hippolyte, where the hotel was surrounded by vineyards.  The last of the harvest was being brought in and from what I tasted of the local wine, next time I go I will definitely make sure I can take some home.  Hand luggage isn’t much good for this!

Sounds like you had a great time. I was very sorry not to be able to go but at least I will have a passport when the next one comes around!
