..catching up...

Where did Sunday go?!

I WAS going to post yesterday, but, suddenly it was 22.00, and the only thing I wanted to do was go to bed...

...and I didn't rise until 10.30 this morning either!!!

Must be catching up after the show in Birmingham (which went brilliantly again!!)...

...and our action-packed little holiday in France.






We based ourselves at Chartres, simply because we love it there so much. It almost feels like "home" now. The train service is marvelous, and it took just under an hour to get into Montparnasse to meet up with our friends Zina and Michel.






We had a great day tramping the streets of Montmartre and elsewhere....visiting a few places I had chosen before going. It was a long and tiring day, but very enjoyable :-)

Monday we bid Chartres "adieu" and headed off to friends in Normandie. ....

...who took us to Honfleur for the day on Tuesday. Inspiration or WHAT!!!






There'll be a row of little stuffed houses "a la France/Normandie" on my stand at the Festival of Quilts in August...

...along with some major pieces in a new theme....

Yup!...I'm doing it to myself again.....setting up those huge tasks to be done in short spaces of time!

In between now and then I also have to write and deliver another 4 magazine articles with their finished articles....and dye more thread stock....and make lots of small pieces for sale.....

ABSOLUTELY NO PRESSURE THEN!!!!!

See you tomorrow for tea..... x

Sounds like you're going to hardly have time for tea!!! Lovely pictures, I could imagine wandering along those lovely streets.

Lovely pictures! Some houses remind me of Tudor style. What a great trip!

I can ALWAYS find time for tea!...especially on Tuesday :-)

Those streets are lovely...and do look very "Tudor" with the timber frames.

A great trip indeed...

Now it's back to work!
