June Crochet workshop in France

The walk this morning with Sue and BeBop was cloudy but warm.

After breakfast we all bundled into the car and went in to St Jean d'Angely for the Wednesday morning market. Hannah bought a hat and a  basket at the first stall we came to, Jane bought some honey to take home and I bought seafood and veg for supper.

By mid morning it was hot and sunny, so we sat in the square drinking coffee and watching the world go by. Wandering through the lovely, narrow old streets we came across an amazing exhibition of hand made models showing the construction of Egyptian pyramids.

After lunch of fresh oysters, cheese and salad we spent the afternoon in the sunshine with our crochet.   All the projects are progressing well, Hannah thinks she will finish her project by the end of the week, I have started a second project (before finishing the first) inspired by a lovely book that Sue bought yesterday, making a crochet rose to attach to a fabric cushion. Sue and Christine are working hard on their projects but not convinced they will finish by Friday.

Jane, Sue and I took BeBop for a walk, then I cooked supper of paella followed by Pavlova with strawberries from the garden. It was warm enough to sit in the garden for supper and stay out there talking with our crochet until long after dark.
