My adventures in Norway and Paris Day 3

Here I am finally getting to the last day of our trip to Norway and Paris...I have been so busy packing and getting ready for market I haven't had a spare minute until now...

bonjour...from Paris


Our first day in Paris...Cindy took me to her favorite cafe where we enjoyed crescents and hot chocolate and people watching...just divine!!!


Most of what I show and share here in Paris is from this things I saw that remind me of Paris...


I can't possibly share everything so I have just a few favorites to share...







This fountain was in a small park just around the corner from where we stayed...









my first try at a selfie...ha ha




Louvre





Versailles
















largest hydrangeas I have ever seen...


Eiffel Tower at night when it was sparkling...









yummiest lemon meringue pie we have ever tasted...


                 Notre Dame







left a lock on this bridge for Randy and I...not sure I'll ever find it again...






breakfast each morning in this 200 year old hotel...we think it was older than that...


last night was listening to this lady sing opera where the acoustics were perfect...memories!!


se la vie 

it was incredibly inspiring...until next time...

Happy Sewing!

Farm Girl Vintage "Woolly Sheep"

Woolly Sheep is the last block on the  Farm Girl Vintage Friday Blog Hop Sew-Along.

It has been sew much fun sewing along  with Lori Holt, Fat Quarter Shop and all of you every Friday. 


I have a pile of super cute Farm Girl Blocks that I can't wait to start piecing together to make a fabulous quilt. 


I wanted my sheep to be white so I used low volume fabrics...I'm going to add some embroidery around the edge of the sheep to help the outline pop.

My Woolly Sheep and I  took a little field trip to Birdseye, Utah.  My sister-in-law and her husband  live on a ranch... It was the perfect spot for some  Farm Girl Vintage photos.

 Don't you love this old farm truck!

The setting was a beautiful, peaceful, tranquil day.

We were able to take these photos with the perfect backdrop for Woolly Sheep.

You can see how adorable my Binding Baby is and how she keeps my binding from unraveling while waiting to be used. 

My letter today is "lowercase o". It is super quick and easy. I have made several blocks as I am preparing to ma…
