9th August Summer Bash was brilliant - best one ever. Lots of food, wine and great company. Oh and archery!
Just after that D-SD and her partner arrived for a few days. A lot more alcohol, food and laughs. Everything went flat after they left on Tuesday.
While they were here we managed to fit in one brocante and 2 vide greniers. For once we came away empty handed. These were at Riberac Brocante.
Very 1950's don't you think. I love the hat stand.
I love the pattern round the base, but I couldn't bring myself to buy it so it was left for someone else.
Now what on earth do you suppose this is for? I thought sewing leather. It's in full working order - the stall owner was working the treadle for the onlookers; a flick of the foot and it was off! I would have loved to own this, but way out of my price league.
More guests arriving today, more tomorrow and then hoping that Mum and sister Soph will arrive sometime next month. Keeping everything crossed that they will. I haven't seen my Mum since July 2007.
On the sewing front, I'm tying Quilt No. 10 and also the Crumbs quilt. I'm not at all happy with it. Half is quilted, half is tied and it looks a mess! I'm going to tie the red border and hope it looks a bit better.
En soleil encore, donc A+
