Attention all stitchers from UK and France ;o)!!!

As you would probably have guessed by now, I’m getting a bit excited about our upcoming visit to see my gawjus girl and her partner in London …18459_256177823178_656333178_4335273_1687739_n That’s my Tahlia in the red coat with her partner Luke on the left. The other couple are my DS Ross and his lovely wife Alicia – they visited UK last Christmas. I cannot wait to give Tahlia and Luke a great big hug – I miss them SO much!! Only 3 more sleeps til we leave :oD!!!!!!

Of course, we’ll also be doing some travelling around and some sight seeing, so I was hoping my friends in the UK might be able to help me out and let me know where the patchwork shops are over there as I’d love to check them out :o). We’ll be hiring a car for part of the holiday and plan to travel around a bit. We’ll also be going to France and spending a week in Nice so if there are any stores around there I’d love to hear about them too ;o).

I haven’t started packing yet … but I have to say, all of our suitcases are looking much smarter now, thanks to Fiona from Bubz Rugz – look what arrived in the mail yesterday…September 2010 162 and when I opened it up …

3 GAWJUS luggage tags for our suitcases!!!!!!!!!! Don’t they look smart now (try to ignore my DHs guitar stuff in the background he he he). Bear (my DD2) also snaffled the pretty pink ribbon to go on hers :o)  ….September 2010 168 We’ll have NO trouble picking out our bags on the carousels now!! THANK YOU SO MUCH Fiona … your thoughtfulness just warms my heart :o)!!! I LOVE them :o)!!!

I’d better be off … I still have HEAPS to do before we go ….
