and the beat goes on...

home again from a lovely time in Paris.  Lynn and I gently explored and ate our way through the various byways of the city.  The perfect millefeuille was one of our desires, and boy when they are good, they are soooo good. Over the next few months products sourced at the trade shows will be introduced into the shop and samples inspired by our travels will emerge.

Over our time away we managed to keep our hands busy - in Lynn's case a knitted pair of socks were achieved for hubby, and in my case the joining of many, many tiny Liberty hexagons...

I am finding the glue then stitch together method is working very well.  We have a Sewline glue stick available in the shop along with many different sized hexagon cut papers if you would like to have a go also.  Not quite sure where this is going in terms of a finished project, but sure am liking the process.  Any ideas gratefully accepted.

Just finishing with these gems...

found on the doors of two adjoining little shops on the Ile de St Louis (with Berthillon icecream in hand).  I present the first image hot having much clue as to the content.  Maybe a translation is in order.  I do hope it is as enchanting as the image.
