They have a wonderful hide away in EU, only minutes away by car from MERS and LE TREPORT, and as the weather was ideal, after the suffocating heath of last week, we were ready for a day at the linen festival near Dieppe.
The white cliffs of the Normandy coast gives you a feeling of being in England, the beaches are stony instead of sandy, night fell at 10 30 so we enjoyed every minute.
People spend the days here and have a shelter for rainy days, but it's forbidden the stay over at night...
I'm a bit bored with the hexies, and strted a week ago to make this top and let me tell you, i find it difficult!
i've nearly finished the little red stars and i consider myself an expert for doing them on the machine.
As you see, i do with what i have at home, but went out this morning for greens, totally runned out for poison greens!
I won't even think of how much time it takes to make such a quilt by hand, ages i suppose.........
The scala of reds were baught last year in St Marie aux mines, the pinks to i believe, and i have the blues for many years.
Too hot, i was tired, and the Avenue Daumesnil, which was rather prestigious a couple of years ago, looked derelict in my eyes, i was there on saturday afternoon, much shop were closed!
i entered the embroidery shop, but they had only very formal stuff and uninspiring quiltfabrics.
Next posting will treat the Linen Festival, see you then,
Will V in Paris, a little cooler today.
