Tea time

It's been raining for a long time and I thought that a lovely British tea time would be just perfect, don't you think ? So, I baked scones, got the jam I had in the fridge, replaced the clotted cream (which can't be found in France) by some butter... and enjoyed the moment with my wife.



The good news is that I have completly finished the pre-stitching for CA Wells's class. It's going to be really nice! All her projects are very elegant. I'll show them to you as soon as they are finished.

So, now I will resume piecing the last blocks of the Mystery Quilt. Two more to go and I can start piecing the top together. I must hurry as the fall break is almost over and I'll be very busy at work until Christmas and therefore will not have as much time for stitching and quilting...unless I sleep 4 hours a night!!!! But there's this voice in my mind repeating "Don't even think about it!" ;-)

Until later,

  9. Nice to meet you Olivier! Welcome to this wonderful world of needle and threads.
    For quilting tips, send me an email and I'll try to tell you how I learnt quilting (in English or in French, it's up to you! Just let me know)

  10. Mais quel joli blog ! Je suis bien contente de l'avoir découvert, grâce au message que tu as laissé chez Marie-Claude (Les secrets de Marie).
    Je m'en vais le ranger soigneusement pour pouvoir y revenir, le plus souvent possible. Ici, tout est absolument délicieux !
    J'espère que tu ne m'en voudras pas de t'écrire en français. Je lis l'anglais mais j'ai peur de ne pas être à la hauteur pour ce qui est de m'exprimer dans cette langue !
    A très bientôt. Amicalement,
    Sylvie.
