When we went to the Netherlands on holiday, we also visited the museum Zaanse Schans. There are many wind mills to look at, e. g. oil mills, saw mills, colour mills, a mill for spices...

The name of my miniature quilt is "Romantic Mill".

I like windmills, and I admired them very much when I stayed in Mykonos in Greece. 

I made my windmill from several materials. For the binding, I used a piece of lace which reminds me of the sunny days on the beach in Greece.

Windmills convert wind energy into rotational movement with the help of vanes called panes or sails. Historically,windmills were mostly used to grind grain or pump water. Most modern windmills generate electricity by means of wind turbines.

This particular windmill was built in 1831 and can be found in Retz in Austria, very close to the Czech border. The windmill is still operational and is a favourite destination for visitors and Retz citizens alike.
