Bonjour Mes Amis

Yes I have returned from the French Needlework show (Les Fete en Aguilees) a somewhat poorer woman in monetry terms but richer in experience.
Although the weather was so cold, mostly below freezing, after our initial day it was fine with none of the expected snow.
Here are just a couple of the beautiful charts that I bought.


Due to Bertie's diligence we were able to pay a visit to 'Sajou' at Versailles. If you ever get a chance give these ladies a telephone call and they will welcome you to their small wharehouse full of the most wonderful Sajou items. So here is Bertie, interupted just once, from her shopping mode.

 And finally, the palce of Versailles in the late afternoon sunshine.

Oh what fun! So did you get anything at the Sajou warehouse? Love seeing what you bought!

Siobhan said...

What a fun trip! I loved seeing the pic of Bertie, and putting a face with the name. :) You picked out some great stash, too.

Deb said...

Oh, how wonderful! I can't even imagine seeing all those wonderful things. And a trip to Sanjou - be still my heart!

Carol R said...

A great stash haul. Sounds like you had a fun trip!

Bertie said...

Now show us your Sajou bits then!!

Well Sandra for us poor souls who weren't able to be with you on the trip, your pictures are a welcome treat. I can see you spent your money very wisely at the show and then, the icing on the cake, a trip to the Sajou warehouse. I can see you did not waste one minute of your trip.
Glad you had such a lovely time :>)

Lots and Lots of Love
