What a journey these past few months have been!
I want to thank you all for your comments and e-mails, your encouragement and support along the way.
Last week was the beginning of the two-week fall break in French schools and I spent a few days on the Mediterranean coast to finally get some rest. I find it always rejuvenating to watch the sea and listen to the waves, to hike along the coast and enjoy time with my family. We all needed this little break.
Fall has now come and it is a time to cosy up at home. A time I particularly enjoy because I can stitch and quilt. And prepare the holiday season.
I have several projects I'm working on at the moment, but yesterday, I preferred working on something different : making a pillow that would go well with the other embroidered pillows I bought two weeks ago at Ikea. Now that the renovation is over, the decoration has begun ;-)
Today, I'm quilting it and hopefully tomorrow, the pillow will be finished.
It's good to be back.
David, it is good to see you back! I love your wall hanging and it looks great with the pillows. Be well my friend.ReplyDelete
It is too good to see you back as well as to look at again your beautiful works and inspirational pictures :))
Hello David, I'm so glad you got to take a vacation and unwind. Your stitching as always inspires. Well wishes to you and yours.ReplyDelete

Welcome back! Your getaway to the coast must have helped you a lot to be refreshed. That new pillow block looks very pretty and chic. I'm having a lazy Sunday today, but your post is making me to feel like I better pick up my project to move forward!!ReplyDelete

What a gorgeous block that you have done to go with your pillow. It's just a work of art!
Don't ya just love Ikea? I love that place :)
You are back! So glad to read you again :-) Yes, I find ocean to be very calming too, we are lucky to live near Kurnell, Captain Cook's landing place in Australia - I love to go there and walk along the high cliffs when I need physical or mental rest..Anyway, your patchwork pillow will be gorgeous!ReplyDelete
So relieved to hear from you again and see your lovely work.ReplyDelete
Your choice of fabrics look wonderful in the block design you chose. Welcome back.ReplyDelete
It is good to see you again. Your vacation pictures are refreshing. Your pieced pillow top and the pillow from Ikea go well together. I love to see your work.ReplyDelete

Tes petites vacances avec ta famille ont du te faire un bien fou.
Ton oreiller sera en parfaite harmonie avec l'autre oreiller....C'est ça qui est sympa aussi après les travaux la déco et ça j'adore.....
Bonne fin d'après-midi.....Moi, je file enfiler mes basket pour un petit footing et après je pourrai prendre mes aiguilles.

Ah, Collioure ! Souvenirs de belles vacances, de jolies marches aussi dans les collines, ou au bord de la mer, dans les petites criques... Écouter le chant des vagues, sentir le soleil chaud... et se mâcher les fesses sur les galets ! ;-) Mais c'était drôlement bien !
Bravo pour ton nouveau quilt ! Élégant, comme d'habitude. J'aime beaucoup !
A très vite !

I agree, there is nothing better than the sea for relaxation, reflection and restoration. I could listen to the ocean all day long.
I love all your gorgeous projects and am loving that wall hanging!!!
