First stop - France...
Saturday, May 06, 2017
After 4 flights totalling 26 hours flying time plus time on the ground at airports we arrived
a little weary at L'Atelier du Patchwork which is on a farm just 1.5hours drive South of Paris
in a town called Villeroy.
We were welcomed by the lovely Anne-Carol and her husband.
Spring is such a lovely time of the year, this old well with the blue sky and
glorious yellow crop of Colzar in the field behind caught my imagination.
The excitement began in the classroom as everyone arrived - peeking into their bags!
There was lots of lovely show and tell, this is 'Fernhill'.
This is 'Anderson's Farm', I love the colour of the barn.
The pieced blocks have been swapped for hexagon flowers making pretty change to my original.
This is 'My Garden' which is in my book Country Cottage Quilting.
So effective in these very pretty fabrics.
The ladies worked hard all day and as you can see they made great progress,
meanwhile the boys relaxed in the garden enjoying the sunshine!!
we fell in love with Miss Rosie the miniature pig :)
Safe for the night....
we had fun inspecting the newly planted fields...
we climbed into the very large high tractor!!
one found lots of my favourite wild flowers in the orchard - cowslips
We felt very honoured when the town mayor came to present the certificates
to the participants at the end of the first day.
I had two lovely days with these two groups of ladies, thank you
There were two of these gorgeous Beauceron dogs living here on the farm (a mother and daughter)
I seem to only have this one photo but really magnificent and very loveable.
We had a wonderful time and hope to see you all again one day soon x
