Crochet workshop in France - day 3

The cushion fronts ready to be blocked and pressed
It is a Public holiday today so there is a Brocante in Brizambourg, however, we wake up to steady rain with no sign of a break. Cath and I brave the elements and take the dogs out for a short and soggy walk after breakfast. The weather doesn't really matter as we are all desperate to get on with our crochet, after a morning of hard concentration and little conversation we have all finished the front of the cushion covers, now all I need is for my new iron that we ordered on-line last week to arrive!
Brizambourg brocante
There is a brief respite in the rain so after lunch of French onion soup we go into Brizambourg to check out the Brocante, understandably only three stalls have put up with the weather. I buy some more geraniums for my new window boxes that Culli has just finished painting and we have a laugh at the bottom half of a shop mannequin that is for sale on one of the stalls then back to start on the back of our cushions.

Sue has a good rummage through my remaining yarn stock and comes out with some lovely shades to knit a fairisle cushion which she starts after supper.
