We were in the garden of Dominique, the embroiderer among us who happens also to be a cuisinière extra ordinaire, she spoiled us with chicken in lemonsauce and aubergine au four, girls i tell you, back at home in the evening, a cup of tea was enough for me...
Not forgetting the Tariquet and rosé.
The serial knitter-quilter- crocheter made a mouthwatering cheesecake with strawberry topping.
I know, i live here for soooooooo long, and allthough i pass by the rue St.Honoré so often, i had never mentioned this nice building with the cast-iron bow windows, i i imagine sitting there and quilt or sew and watch the world go by.....
They danced and sung and peoeple stopped and filmed.
This is a new kid on the block: a little compact BERNINA 125,just plain cute and it sews smoothly and not noisy at all.
I'm looking for more presser foots and accessories, the machine came with just one and no toolbox.
The featherweight will stay my all-time favorite, because of the light weight but the ELNA grasshopper does a very good job too, but heavier to transport.
I made a little dollquilt from Dutch fabric, to escape from the other dutch quilt, ready now, exept a small piece of the binding.
Clever girls never leave home with a Leatherman tool, it allowed me to unscrew this beautiful iron element with the copper detail.
Its a sort of greek mermaid and i had to remove at least 8 layers of paint but it was worth the work a thousend times.....
Not sure when i will be back here, i will start painting the main room quickly.
Take care and happy quilting, i love you all.
