Borba II - quilts, tomato jam and explorations

Couldn't resist taking a photo of a beautiful vintage handmade quilt (above) and a very unusual table cloth (bellow) made with a similiar technique. I was amazed with the motifs and fabric combination.

An attic with ancient toys here and there, piles of books stacked against the wall,

and a lovely tomato jam for breakfast in good company,

are surely indicators of a great day ahead.

This area of Alentejo is famous for its wine, olive oil and marble - we tried to get inside a quarry, to take some pics, but unfortunately it was closed for the day. Nevertheless the walk through the fields was worthwhile.
