Back...Just in time for Klosjes Day ! ;>)

Hellooooooo, dear friends !
Back from beautiful Provence,
where we had such a wonderful time...
(although I missed you!)
We visited a lot of heavenly places,
tasted the most delightful fresh local products,
AND spent an unforgettable week with Vali & Hubby...
Boy, did we have FUN !
Yet I was a good girl, and made some progress in my sewing :
first with my klosjes, as I managed to piece 132 of them
(which makes my total reaching approx. 300)
I was happy with that, but "fed up", as I told Vali.
She always has such brilliant ideas, and suggested it was time
to start piecing them together !
This gave me the right push I needed to keep going
And here's the result...
(The background fabric is a little treasure I found in a local quiltshop, and I'm planning to use it as the border fabric)
I've got SO MUCH MORE to tell you,
(and even more progress to show, HeeHee.....)
I guess this will take several coming posts.
not to mention those last 2 months posts of yours
that I have to catch up
(and I know I'm going to discover such treasures)
Have a nice weekend, THANKS for visiting,
and by all means
