Update on Stitch a long...

I have been having fun stitching along with this design, but have had many "dawnifications" enroute to fit with my Japanese taupey style.

Stitching along....

Another productive weekend finishing off some blocks  of Natures Journey stitch a long that I am doing.    I think I will get kicked out of group soon as I am tagging way behind in only having
J u s t finished April blocks.... but the Dawnifications" take full blame for the slow process.

Anyway just about to start May blocks today...... Not bad seeing it is the  last day of the month, no chance of doing these in a day!

Oh well happy just plodding and it is great inspiration  to see all the others getting done along the way too.

Oh Chookyblue is having a birthday celebration this weekend, hope over to here:
To see what everyone else is up to!

Missing from Blogland.... again!!!!!


 Yes I know I have been v e r y slow on blog updates.
I have however been visiting some lovely places in South of France.
I know other  peoples pics can be boring, but truly there we some fabulous little towns/villages and gorgeous scenery so thought I would post a few here:


It was rather cold and around 3 degrees in places but it was the wind that made it the chiliest.


Beginning with Sydney, then Dubai, followed by Paris....


then south of Dijon as follows:

 A visit to the Mustard manufacturer and some wineries....
truffles, old buildings and Chaleau's


Locks and gorgeous old buildings

 pretty little towns....
lovely
Scenery and Provence... just gorgeous



more lovely buildings and castles/bridges




 and yes... wait for it, I managed to sniff out just the one Patchwork shop throughout.
I had lots of "old world charm".



now, best I get back to some stitching
so that I have some real sewing pics to show!!!!!
