I'm still a sewing (travel?) blogger of no fixed address. I can't have the luxury of a stash. I'm on the move, seeing things I've always wanted to see, shedding more than accumulating, living for today (once I have somewhere to sleep organized that is!)
I've been to London
The Scottish Highlands. I have a feeling it would take a brave man to wear this rather non traditional kilt.
Back to Paris. I can't begin to tell you how much there is to see and do in Paris. I have a feeling I don't need to. One of my favourite places is the lovely Sacre Coeur high on a hill in Montmarte.
Just down from Sacre Coeur is the garment fabric district. How could I not drop by there as well?
The fabulous Tissus Reine (pictured below) and the March Saint Pierre are on opposite corners to each other. I enjoyed the chance to feel fabric, look at fabric, browse catalogues and peruse buttons.
There are also many smaller fabric shops all the way around the corner. It was late afternoon and there were tables of bargains outside each shop.
I went back to Tissus Reine and came out with this lovely piece of Liberty for a summer tunic/smock.
It hardly weighs anything and I need the injection of colour amongst all my practical basics. I didn't buy any of a perfect soft dress-weight denim and that my sewing friends, is quite a feat.
