All that we have done!

Day Off

We have had a wonderful day, driving through the French country side, seeing what is going on - not a lot.  To be honest you hardly see a soul in the little villages, they appear to be deserted. Tony insisted on driving for miles to see a Maginot Line Fort. To me it was a large ugly lump of concrete with rusty bits. But he seemed very happy and that is what counts.

The monday we left I received 2 envelopes from the Valentine challenge, I had hoped to share the photo's with you sooner, Carol spotted hers on the Metz stand.  Only a few more days to make those special cards, so here is the last inspiration from our Ribbon Challenge 11 "Valentine"

Carol this is so cute, I adore the picture - oh and the ribbon flower is great too!!

Carol is our first international challenger, all the way from Cyprus.  Great card Carol, the backing paper matches the ribbon perfectly.

I was asked all the time in Metz for the Broderie Anglaise Carol, I was sorry I could not help them, but we did sell the ribbon!

Wendy went for the traditional ribbons and don't they look fab.

I love the ribbon woven effect that Wendy has created here. I am a fan of ribbon weaving it is so easy to do, and makes great cushions.  Sydney has a collection on her bed, all in bright colours.

Thanks to all that took part in the Valentine challenge, your creations are, as always awesome.  We have a larger stand in Paris and I plan on using Tracey's washing line idea.  I have lots of little wooden pegs and I am going to peg them across the open sides of the stand, like a washing line - yes I will take pics!!

This is a delightful Auberge we are staying in, but we didn't realise that we are the only 2 here, until we went to dinner last night.  They had set up a table for two in front of the log fire - oh it was so romantic!!

Off to Paris tomorrow.....
