After three weeks that is a good feeling. We had a wonderful holiday in which we drove from the Black Forest in Germany to Northern France to meet a cousin of my husband and her family, who started a camping site there. Then we travelled south to the Ardèche and the last week we were in the very south of France, near Cannes. Most of the time it was a more active holiday: canoing, climbing trees and slinging down from them, walking and swimming.
I did take my sewing machine, but didn't get a lot done. It was very, very warm and I didn't feel like sewing much. But I did set up my sewing machine one or two times, doesn't this look like a perfect sewing setup?
This was the garden in the last house we rented, near Cannes. At home I would never bother to take my sewing machine outside, but here it was gorgeous to do that. The iron and board were in the house, I didn't take those with me!
It was a lovely house, and we even had internet access there (my husband took his laptop), so I was able to catch up a bit from there.
These were waiting for me at home, I'll write more on my additions to my sewing library later.
Hope you all are fine and starting your sewing for the new season. For me I'm looking forward to fall sewing. First I'm going to finish my dress/jacket combination. The jacket will probably more of a Chanel-jacket. I've joined the Chanel sew along (see sidebar) and think JoanneM was right in her comment on the fabric, that it is perfect for a Chanel-style jacket. To be continued...
