I spend a wonderful afternoon with Bonnie Hunter and her friend Randy, and my new quilting friend Valérie.
We had a lovely meal in a restaurant in the area,delicious food for a very reasonable price.
So if you come to Montmartre, ask me for the adress, it's hard to find this kind of resto's in a touristic quarter, with such a lot of tourist traps!
Afterwards we went to my home for a show and tell, and Valerie and i went shopping with them around the Marché St. Pierre, and they went home with loads and loads of Toile de Jouy.
Hope you had both a pleasant flight home and Randy, your sweater is on the way!
Slow progress on the hexies, only one row, but i magaged to make a few hundred red ones, the most boring job of this quilt.
You may remember that i told about the loss of the center of this quilt and that it took me a long time to decide to start it over.
And then, one day, under a bunch of scraps in the iron basket, what did i see???????????????
The first one!
And when i compare, i prefere the first far more!
Repositioning the first will be a heck of a job, but i think it's worth doing it.
WHAT WOULD YOU DO?
No doubt, with this kind of organisation it's logic that i can search for this or for that during hours.............
I love lone stars, but they are hard to display in very small rooms,so it stays always stacked in a pile.
The prussian blue matches lovely and the overall look likes more English than American.
The border design is an English fabric from 1824, sort of chinoiserie.
Thank you for following my blog and your kind comments.
Even if i do not always answer them i really appreciate your interest.
Will V in Paris, rainy and much colder today.
