I came back from France last week and I am happy to share with you those few "postcards" of the places I like to visit when I stay in Paris. They are very few pictures because I was often forgetting my camera, or I did not want to carry to much burden. Next time I hope to make a better and more dense report of the hundreds of places I love in Paris. 

As regards quilting shops, my favorite one "Le Rouvray", that was ruled by an American woman, had closed last year. There is another one that I went to, but I did not decide to buy anything from there, plus I had not my camera, so no picture of a quilting shop! 

I stayed in Paris for almost one month, and I was so busy visiting family and friends that I did not do the least stitch, neither did I knit, although I intended to, as I bought yarns from the little shop shown above.

Now it's time to work on a new quilting project. I have another order from a friend in Paris who just became grandmother of a little girl. So let's start again a new baby quilt!

Have a wonderful week!
Christine
