It has been a dark, drab week in Southern Ontario. I am not complaining–how could I in the face of such destruction and pain to the south of us? But I am commenting that there has been no sun and little colour since I got home. S0…I did a very quick sketch of the beautiful flowers on our counter and felt better immediately. Then I took out out the fabric I brought home from France. Now, last year when I was in the south of France I bought some wonderful striped fabric in Collioure and made a few of these pouches. I didn’t buy enough, of course — and the few pouches sold quickly. I was delighted this year in Chartres to find a whole store devoted to this striped fabric from the Basque region.
I have begun to make a few pouches. The colours are wonderful. I also have some coated fabric for aprons and totes. All will be available at our show in December.
Tell me again when the sale is. I’m more than interested. And of course Julie will be with me.
Wow! What beautiful colours!
Fabulous colours, Christine…wow!!
