We went to Bordeaux on Friday. Alex had the day off - ecole en grève encore (Tonya translate that please *vbg*) - so we thought we deserved a day out. We drove there in gorgeous beautiful sunshine and, of course, when we arrived the heavens opened. We were cold, wet and miserable, but did I let that deter me from my mission? No I did not! Someone on the Stashbuster groups posted this web site as it has a good list of QS's in Western Europe so I couldn't resist a peek. I found Saperlipo'Patch tucked away in a tiny back street off the Cours Victor Hugo. Talk about walking into Wonderland. I just stood and gawped. They specialise in Japanese stuff, but I was more interested in the threads and the FQ's. I couldn't make my mind up and used the excuse, in my head, that I needed to compare prices with the QS's in Perigueux Centre Ville and at Thiviers. However, look what I did find - perfect for cutting letters. 3 x 15 mm and isn't it sweet. Alex and I having been pulling material from the stash for the next quilt and this little beauty is going to help. We have had a pretty eventful weekend. Our lovely Magic has picked up some sort of bug and isn't at all well. Bit better this morning so we shall see.
