Oh how I wish I could have joined you. It all looks so dreamy!

This post was a overload of pretty!! Looks like a lovely time was had by everyone, and thank you for sharing all the photos... So glad to hear that your bag was found! A good beginning to a good week!

So glad your stitch bag is being returned to you. And oh, how you will love France. You'll come home with so much inspiration!


Hello Charlotte,

Your next teaching workshop in France sounds amazing!


Tammy Gilley

Looks like fun, C!


I am so glad you stitch bag was found! I'd be in tears if I lost mine, not because it is valuable, but because of the things inside, like my G. Gram's thimble. Your Sailor Hearts are beautiful. Oh, how I wish I could go shopping at French General! What a beautiful shop. Brush up on your French! xo


Hurray! So glad to hear your stitch bag was found Charlotte! WHEW! What a relief.
Do you know Gina's blog address by chance? She and her friend told me they have blogs and I meant to get their info and of course was too excited to remember anything. Everyone was so darling that I sat with, I could kick myself for not exchanging emails with everyone.
You lucky, wishing you tons of creative fun and inspiration in France!
Happy week to you,


It's all so beautiful. I would have loved to have gone! I'm so glad you got your bag back. I would have been in a panic!


Glad you found your bag :) Everything in the shop looks fantastic. How cute is that stitch book with the little birdie and straight pin holding section? Love it! The hearts all look fantastic, too :)

So happy that your stitch bag was found. Looks like you had a wonderful time - what a fun place to gather & stitch together. All these beautiful hearts make me want to get out my stitching goodies. Congrats on your upcoming trip to France! Hugs.


What a wonderful time it looks like you had... I'll bet it feels like being a kid in a candy store when you're at French General!
