My Talented Friends - Two Giveaways

One of my closest bloggy neighbours
Suzy who blogs at
will be teaching a class at Creative Workshops.

The class Suzy is teaching is called
and Suzy will take us on a step by step journey
on how to create our own
fabric lace book
just like the ones we drool over when we see them on her blog!

I have already enrolled and I can't wait
until Monday 14th September when the class begins.

Suzy's Giveaway
Suzy is very generously giving away
one free entry to her class!
The lucky winner will be announced on Monday 7th September.
Follow this link to put your name in the hat!

When I mentioned that Suzy is a close neighbour
I was stretching the truth just a little.....
however 2600 odd kilometers is considered close
 in our far flung corner of the world!

I went weak at the knees when I saw this embroidered fabric!

I am now working only a couple of days a week
and I'm ready to spread my wings
and search new horizons!
Suzy's class is the "kick start" I need to inspire me
to get creative again.
So if you have always thought you would like to
make a fabric book/journal then this is
the class for you!

All you need to do is follow the link above or on my side bar,
and I will look forward to catching up with you
in class on 14th September!!!

More exciting news!
Another of my special bloggy friends is
(she's also a Kiwi like me - now domiciled offshore)
and blogs at
Just Lilla

She is also hosting a wonderful
of a Rive Gauche Paris Bag.

Lilla trips off to France every year
and she soaks up everything
in the french way... she has that certain
je ne sais quoi!

She arrives home with wonderful photographs.
Some of these images she uses for inspiration
to paint water colour art works and embroideries
which are incorporated in her fabric books,
bags and collage art.

You won't want to miss this one either and
the giveaway is open until the end of September.

Lilla is a regular contributor to
Somerset magazines
and this Rive Gauche Paris bag and
another Montparnasse bag are in
Haute Handbags magazine - Spring 2015 issue.

Next time I will show you one or two items
I bought at the brocante in my daughter's village!

Take care and
be kind to one another

Merci à bientôt

Goats in Moulin en Tan France

More pics from our afternoon with the girls at
Moulin en Tan.
The day was hot - the temperature was in the high 30's.

The goats seemed quite happy lazing in the sunshine
showing no interest in climbing posts this day!

The two white doves showed more sense
resting in the shade of the tree.

The sign suggests this pen is for sheep
maybe they had gone walkabout
 as there were none to be seen!

I'm joining 
Theresa for Good Fences
Eileen for Saturday Critters
Mersad for Through My Lens
Arija, Gattina, Lady Fi, Sylvia, Sandy & Jennifer

Thank you all for hosting your great Memes!

Take care and
be kind to one another

Merci à bientôt
