Needlepoint in Paris and Oliver the Cat

In the Walk With Me section of the Knitlark Lane Podcast Number 17
I talked about going with my friend Georgette -- it was her first trip to Paris -- to a wonderful needlepoint shop on rue des Moulins, near the Opera Garnier.

Here is the link to the shop
and a picture of the front.

This is a picture of the canvas my friend Georgette bought. It is really lovely.

Here are some pictures of some ribbons from La Droguerie, the yarn, ribbon, bead and button shop that I talked about in Podcast #16 and wrote about in the last blog.

  1. Thanks for your comment! :) I have not read The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Society (what a title!) but I think I will have to check it out. I have a substantial list of to-reads but what's one more, eh? So many books, so little time.

  2. What a fun blog!! I'll have to check out the podcast now :)

  3. Thanks for the comments. I love hearing from you.
