I'm back from France, after a great trip. I still have more pictures to share but I really wanted to check in on your mug-rugs... I hope everyone received theirs and was happy with theirs! Please let me know if you have any comments (or maybe you didn't get yours?? that happened with the pin cushion swap last year, believe it or not!)... THANK YOU to everyone who participated. I think it was great fun and everyone I heard from has just loved what they received.
Here is what I received from Janet Dickson. She made hers using the Singer 301 she bought from me recently!
I will quickly show you a couple more eye glass windows from Paris. The translation is glasses for the swimming pool! (prescription goggles!)
My friend Claire is on her way so I need to get ready to do some sewing, finally!
I think these are prescription diving masks! As I said before, Paris has eyeglass stores on every single block, and some have the most elaborate displays.
Paris also has fabulous florist shops everywhere. These roses were on display in the street. Aren't the colors lovely? And inspiring! All the florist shops tempt you by displaying gorgeous flowers on the street in front of their shops!
I have many more pictures to share which I promise to do tomorrow. It's been a crazy week--right after we got back, we had the grandkids for the weekend; then I got to spend a few hours with the darling baby Eli (turning a year next month, already WALKING) so it's been pretty busy.
