I found only two gorgeous
when I was away.
A fabulous tiny cross stitch shop,
the walls covered
in stitched samples.
I could not leave these books behind ...
... so many beautiful designs
in these pages.
The hard part will be deciding which to
stitch first :)
Loved these magazines ...
whilst I have absolutely
no idea what the articles say,
the pictures are definitely worth
a thousand words.
The other little shop sold furnishing fabrics,
and oh my goodness,
if I lived in Briancon
that is where I would be buying my
curtain fabric from.
they also had a stand
of divine laces and ribbons.
Well, it would have been wrong
not to take a sampling home with me :)
Nothing to do with stitching whatsoever,
I bought a little cow bell:) ...
... to remind me of the many walks I took,
because everywhere you went
you could hear the bells ringing.
depending on how many cows in the herd
were wearing bells,
it was like a musical :)
and such a pretty sound.
A few of my treasures ...
