So there’s been a distinct lack of creative blog posts lately – namely because I’ve been so busy working on secret things. There, yes, I said it, and I’m sorry. I’d absolutely love to show you my finished wedding invites, my upcoming Minerva Blogger Network posts, my Liberty-print party dress and my finished fairisle jumper – but I can’t just yet… or at least not for another few weeks when they become, well, less secret!
Instead, my news for this week is that we’re off to Paris in a week’s time! I can’t wait. I haven’t been for 2 years (last time I was there I was a fille au-pair to 3 little French boys, read about about that here) and I can’t wait to get back there. I can hear the stripy Breton tops and baguettes calling from here. It actually feels like I’m going home…
We’ve not got much of a plan for our week there aside from eat lots of croque monsieurs, drink du vin and flâner around the Tuileries, but that sounds pretty perfect, n’est-ce pas? I just hope it’s sunny! I also have plans to visit Brin de Cousette to get hold of some Deer & Doe patterns – sewing is never far from my mind.
Who else has fun holiday plans for this year? I promise there are more crafty/sewing posts to come – they’re all sat ready and scheduled in my dashboard waiting for the opportune moment. In the meantime, let’s all croiser les doigts and wish France the best of luck in this year’s Eurovision 😉
