Back from Nantes

Last summer we spent family holidays in Brittany. We had the occasion to visit Nantes and really enjoyed it. So it was less difficult to convince my husband to come with me to the International Show of the Arts of Thread ðŸ™‚

L’été dernier nous avons passé des vacances en famille en Bretagne. Nous avons eu l’occasion de visiter Nantes et nous avons vraiment apprécié. Donc c’était moins difficile de convaincre mon mari de m’accompagner au salon Pour l’Amour du Fil 🙂

When I arrived there I was surprised to find my quilt got the 7th price of the contest “Indigo Variations”.
En arrivant j’ai eu la surprise de voir que mon quilt a eu le 7ème prix du concours “Variations Indigo”.

I received that great set of notions from Clover.

We travelled from Geneva to Nantes by plane. At the last moment we decided to check in one luggage. Just in the case I did too much shopping … And that was definitely a good idea. It would have been a problem to go through the security check with all that stuff in my handbag !

Nous avons pris l’avion de Genève à Nantes. Au dernier moment nous avons décidé d’enregistrer un bagage. Juste pour le cas où je ferais un peu trop de shopping … Et c’était vraiment une bonne idée. Cela aurait été un problème de passer le contrôle de sécurité avec tous ces trucs dans mon sac à main !

Although the show is rather country style and traditional I found some fabrics to buy …
Bien que le salon est plutôt de style country et traditionnel, j’ai trouvé quelques tissus à acheter …

  1. Oh, my goodness, Sophie! I spotted a teeny weeny picture of some of your work on your side bar, so I clicked on it. As I explored your archived posts a little further, I discovered this post. I am SO enamoured with this beautiful, original design. It really 'speaks' to me! You have such incredible vision, my dear. I not only pinned it, but shared it on my little FB page for my few special friends to drool over it, too. I hope you don't mind!
