The French Festival was held this weekend at Southbank in Brisbane and, as a devout Francophile, it was important to be there and be surrounded in all-things-French. From can-can dancers to crepes and an occasional glimpse of Marie Antoinette it was a lovely way to spend a Saturday (apart from the queue for the crepes).
Naturally it was essential to bring some joie de vivre home and that came in the form of macarons. Since I had a solo weekend (Luvvy and the teenager-in-residence were away visiting) that evening and the next were spent sewing more one-inch squares together for the “My Small World” project. Put it down to the lack of company but I may have spent a little while trying to incorporate the two – fabric and macarons that is. What do you think?
It was almost as much fun finding fabric to ‘stage’ them as it was eating them. Actually, no, it wasn’t.
The Apatcheez were also busy this week. The glory for most finishes this week went to Chris. She brought these two quilts for show-and-tell, both of which featured rather wonderful owls.
We were all very impressed with these and the quilting that Chris has been perfecting. Well one of the group was just cold and preferred to take advantage of the chair quilt – literally!
Hope your week was productive too. Let me know what you did. Until next time happy quilting.
I think you’ve got a new obsession? All that sugar must be helpful with your Small World.
love the Macarons and fabric nice calorie touch
Kaye, I thoroughly enjoy your emails. They make me smile. All the quilts your lovely ladies create inspire me to keep going on my “ooooonnnnn goinggggg” project.
Loved all the French theme pics especially the fabric.
