Vive La France

We are getting sooo excited.  It is a different kind of excitement from last year....We know more what to expect.




   We are returning to the beautiful Verteillac in the Dorogne part of France to the welcoming arms of les soeurs anglaises.

This is the most restful beautiful place you can imagine.

We are taking a workshop from Jessie Chorley.

 After this we will travel by fast train to Paris and enjoy what Paris offers while staying in our own little rented apartment in arrangement 6-ish.  Can hardly wait to see and taste it all again....instead of just watching International House Hunters to get little fixes....

A little bit of art...

I had 2 days off to do some art...I guess I could have done housework...but I didn't.  I worked on my SEWN online class is so much fun...I got some great mail art from Joy Deaton....

really awesome!!

I also crammed in a trip to SB to see the Brooklyn Library Sketchbook Project traveling library.  I did not get to see my book but I did see lots of other cool journals.  Really fun.
