Country textiles in Provence

the real thing here
sturdy country fabric and design logos
they have inspired me lately
I will be making my versions soon

Some of my fave, items.
Great comfy grain-sack cushions
Wanted them but couldn't fit into my one carry-on bag

Pin it

it is easy to make interesting pincushions from old silver pieces
one base came from Paris and makes a nice little whimsy.
the other base was found at a flea market

Luggage sachets

I sewed the lavender filled sachets
 thought they would be very nice in a suitcase for trips abroad or to Vegas
the French blue striped fabric is old homespun, very European
I made tags with assorted Passport stamps and sewed them on each sachet
two are tied together with twine for a gift

4 pretty sachets in a basket

Burgundy collage

I made the patchwork collage from some of my photos
most were in Burgundy, in the wine country
I took a wine tour there, and found the quaint winding roads so peaceful, dotted with  Chateau and small rustic villages
Our transport had a difficult time traversing some of the extremely steep and narrow streets
we had to back up and find another route at times
Lots of fun and great photos
