We are now in Bordeaux. It is a beautiful city.

After two long flights and some sleep, we caught the train to Versailles where we were staying for two nights. In the afternoon we wandered around the gardens of the palace trying to keep awake! Had a fairly early night and then were up early and were about 6th in line to head into the palace at 9am. It was so wonderful to finally see the Hall of Mirrors. We did come here in the 70's but the palace was closed!

We are in packing mode here at the moment as we set off on an adventure overseas on Monday. We are heading to France for about 3 weeks and then to the UK for the other 3 weeks. We will certainly miss these little people (and their parents) while we are away.
We had our last classes this week and it was lovely to see what the ladies have been stitching. Lynne has made another bag and another canvas work scissor keeper.

Last Friday I headed to the coast for our annual retreat at the coast. Twelve of us enjoyed a rainy weekend of relaxing, too much delicious food, puzzles (not me), lots of chat and a bit of stitching for a few of us. We did manage a walk or two in between the showers and some swam in the pool and at the beach (again not me as it was not warm enough). Here are some of the treats we managed to share over the weekend.
Here we all are just before we headed home. Monday was a lovely sunny day!
We stopped and Kangaroo Valley for lunch and enjoyed a lovely look at the shops.

Last week, I took some photos at class of some lovely stitching but my memory card died!!! So sad. Armed with a new one I was able to take some this week. Paddy brought in her gorgeous boro bag all finished! It looks so good and we all want to make one. It is a pattern and kit by Jane from BeBebold.
