Back in my sewing room!

Well it's been a long break but I'm finally back in my sewing room.  We've had a lovely week in Northern Provance France, staying in a small basic farmhouse.  Not so basic that it didn't have a beautiful swimming pool though.  Our week was spent shopping for local produce at the markets, such wonderfully simple things like tomatoes that tasted of sunshine, honey from bees that had used nectar from the lavender, local cheeses and the bone dry Provancal rose wine, swimming, laughing and generally chilling out with our books.  The sun shone throughout and for the first couple of days we were cooled by the Mistral.  


Before we went I had to pack up my sewing room completely as the decorator was coming in to redecorate our bedroom and although we got back late on Sunday it's taken me until lunchtime yesterday to shift all the furniture and unpack my sewing room.  But such deep joy when my Janome was finally uncovered again!! 

I set to and made lavender bags!!! Well what else! The farmhouse had an abundance of fragrant lavender growing all around and Madame very kindly told us to help our selves.  My sewing room is quite heady with its perfume at the moment!!  Tomorrow I'll really get back in the saddle though and crack on with my quilt commission, hopefully there will be something too show soon.

Sew happy to be back........ Jacky O
