I'm still binding Kezia's quilt, but in between times am having fun. These are going to be sent to the Stashbuster List Mom, Sandra, for her Stashbuster 6 x 6 challenge. Hope she likes them.
Then the black ink cartouche ran out on the printer which meant a trip into Périgueux. Are you ready for some stunning photos (even if I say so myself)?
This is what we call The Fat Lady. She sits in the Place St Louis in the centre of Périgueux. During the winter months this square is turned into the Marché du Gras - selling duck in every conceivable form. In the summer it is lovely. There are restaurants on all sides and they overflow on to the square which is a sea of parasols in different colours. Please excuse the lamp post coming out of her head!
Fountain in one of the Square's near the Cathedral.
Detail of said fountain. Those poor ladies holding that weight up! Bet they've got a headache!
I think this must be one of the last remaining shops in Périgueux that still looks like it did 100 years ago. The shop is, of course, closed but I love these doors and shutters. Can't you imagine every shop looking the same.
A little further along the same street I found this.
Hope you can read the words - French on the left, English on the right. The building is in the process of restoration. Must be one of the last buildings to be restored. All the others have been.
And then a bit further on - found outside the Clinique Franchville.
Which looks like this - outside ashtray!
And saving the best one until last.
This is the Place Franchville. Used to be a huge concrete square with not a lot going on. Now its the home of the multiplex cinema and this is the main square. You can just see the cathedral spire to the left. I love the lamp shade style lighting and the huge metal pots containing Magnolia Grandiflora.
I'm going to leave it there for the moment. Really must get stuff done. Back tomorrow or more likely Wednesday with the WiP photos.
Yet another vide grenier yesterday - latest haul x 2 (blacks) 50 centimes each!!!! At least a metre big - lucky me - photos next time.
