La Droguerie

A little trip to Paris last week. And for me, going to Paris means visiting and shopping at La Droguerie, my favorite haberdasher's shop. They have their own production and dyeing of great quality yarns. In this wonderful shop you can find quilting fabrics, Liberty fabrics, all sorts of threads, buttons, beads, ribbons... as well as catalogues with their great patterns for children or adults.

I remember when this shop was created in 1975, I was one of their first customer and so happy to find cashmere yarn, out of which I knitted a sweater for the one who ...

Up Cycled Basket with Vintage Trim from Tea Rose Home

Several years ago, I spray painted this basket and set it on my shelf. I was looking at the left over vintage trim from my other project and I had an idea for what to do with it. I made this in to a ribbon to decorate this basket with added pom-pom trim.

Paducah Quilt Week -- 5 -- mostly modern from Fleur de Lis Quilts and Accessories

A few more of the pictures I took last week. These are almost exclusively all winners. I tried to get both the title of the quilt and the ribbon(s) but I'm sure there are a few that I missed. Getting decent photos was especially difficult because of space limitations.

These are all so beautiful! Are you a modern quilter? Do you ...

Houston IQA {3} Ribbons! from Fleur de Lis Quilts and Accessories

Every quilt on this post is a ribbon winner. That's about all I can tell you. It's possible to look them all up in the catalog, which I always purchase, but if I take time for that, you get fewer photos. I'm going with the photos. You can look up the winners in the catalog which is now online. 


Janet Stone's Garden Variety Sampler which won Best of Show 

And a tighter look at parts of the quilt...
My personal favorite part of the quilt is the topiaries.

Did you notice the sheep?

Can you just ...
