Love at first sight with the Austr alian quilts from Brigitte Giblin and Cathy Doughty, vivid sparkling colors, the overall look is modern, but yet so traditionnal.
Brigitte mixes American fabrics with antique French fabrics, both blending in in a harmonious way.
I hope we will meet them again in Europe, blogs are filled up with comments and both speak very good French.
Brigitte showed us with much patience her way of basting hexagons, i'm trying to get familiar with it.
In the evening i accompanied Joes and Isabeau and some other friends to the BRASSERIE LA CIGALE, with an authentic Jugendstil tile decor, overwhelming and very friendly service.
Whenever you plan to go there, make a reservation, many people were refused, totally crowded.
Unfortunately i could stay only one hour with them, i had to catch the train back home.
This is what i carried home: some fabric, two books and two embroidered squares from the Afghan ladies.
I was tempted by many other things, but one has to make choices...
