I’m in France!

Okay, I’m not in France, but some of my creations are! I was so excited checking on Design Mom last week (did you know they’re living in France right now? Sounds dreamy!) to see a little quilt I made spread under the Eiffel Tower. 
Seems appropriate because there’s even a cute little Eiffel Tower on the quilt itself.

Here’s another shot of the quilt.  I knew Gabby back in college days and she was gracious enough to ask me to guest post on Design Mom a couple of years ago when I was a very new blogger. I sent her the quilt as a thank you. Fun to see that little quilt go on an international adventure!

Also, last week, my hoops made the front page of the French sewing site Thread and Needles. Fantastique!

I studied French in high school and college and got fairly fluent – at least I could understand most of what was being said, if I couldn’t exactly express myself well.  Now those skills have tragically fallen by the wayside – all I really use them for lately is reading the names of French General fabric collections. Oh well, c’est la vie. I’ll have to get on Thread and Needles more often to brush up on my francais and for now live vicariously through Gabby’s adventures. Vive La France!

PS Don’t forget the Vintage Sheet bunting giveaway ends tonight. Thanks for all the vintage love – I wish I had more to share with all of you!
