Barb and I are traveling to France April 18. We will be staying in Paris for a short visit and then continuing to Nantes. Quiltmania the fabulous quilting magazine from France has invited us to set up a booth and to teach three classes. My daughter Laura is traveling with us also. She speaks French and has agreed to help us a bit. This will be our second trip and we love France. While in Paris we went to the Paris Flea Market, the Bird and Flower Market, and to a wonderful cross stitch shop. If you could see my cross stitch pattern stash it would take your breath away. But I had to buy something from this shop and stitch it to remember my trip. (Maybe I can finish it during this trip.)
I purchased this wonderful sampler in the Flea Market. I have sent it to Alissa to chart for me. After she has completed it I will post it for you to stitch if you would like. It's sweet and very easy.

What I'm reading: You will like this one's great and easy read.

Thank you for your kind comments and encouragement. It means very much to me.
I wanted to let you know that Niki Farrauto has a blog also. She is the designer who did the book My Heart is True with Barb and me. You will enjoy seeing her latest designs.
Until next time! Alma

Alma, it is just wonderful to discover you are now blogging - I have been drawn to your work ever since I started quilting 13 years ago - so all the way from Australia 'I'll be Watching You!' Enjoy your trip to France - hugs - Lurline♥
