I have completed the paper piecing for the church and school house on the kit, "Quilted Village." Now to work on the stitching the trees and birds.
Why all the DMC floss? I was lamenting the incredibly high prices for DMC floss in Paris on Facebook and a very thoughtful friend grabbed several colors at Hobby Lobby and handed them to my husband the morning before his flight left for Paris. He had been in the Memphis...the center of the Fed Ex universe, this past week. I think I will be turning to my friend there to help me out more often! We do get a very good shipping discount since hubby works for Fed Ex...time to start using it for international shipping.
I also emailed a French blogger to ask where she shops...and she buys mostly from the US. She did send me a huge list of quilt shops in France and recommended one in Paris I am anxious to visit...that is on this week's agenda. They have a website and bali pops from Hoffman are $55 in US dollars...but I will be able to see batik fabrics! I definitely won't be complaining any more about the prices at my favorite quilt shops in Alaska.
