Granada, Spain

DH has received the most prestigious honorary degree from the University of Granada. We had the most fun with friends and stayed on this fantastic Carmen de la Vitoria. Which is a house that the University has for guests. Our room had a view of the Al Ahambra; thought I had died and gone to haven. Never closed the window to the patio, so  I would wake up and see it there. I bought a great magazine called Labores del Hogar. It has all kind of crafts: cross stitch, quilting, knitting, crochet, and so on. I tried to buy a quilting magazine I bought last year in Granada; but could not find it any where. In addition, 2 of the fabric stores I used to shop are now closed and the third one has very little fabric left :-(
I know that quilt is alive and well in Barcelona. That is a good thing.
Check out this great link from Granada.
