The first retreat in June was another wonderful week - a mix of old and new guests.
We started the week with a trip to the Puce de Couturieres at one of our local villages - a wonderful market of new & vintage fabric, trimmings, yarn, buttons, bag handles and lots more .....
By the end of the second evening everyone was starting to feel a little weary
and yarn winding was not going well
After an early walk in the fields with Buddy & Billie I was ready for a trip to Cognac
Starting at my favourite yarn shop
Then a wander around the town
and coffee and cognac (for some!) in the square
Back home for more knitting and crochet
The next outing was to Saint Jean d'Angeley
First stop was the sweetie shop
Then more shopping and sightseeing
on the last evening we went to visit Egreteau our local Cognac producer for a bit of tasting and shopping
Back home for apero's and supper and the end of another week at Knitting holidays in France with some amazing people
