We started the week with a visit to the Brocante in Saintes and found a few bargains - metal signs, trays, beads, necklaces and fabric.
On Monday we had a day at home working on projects. There is a good mix of scarves, shawls, gloves, a child's sweater and a lovely X-stitch project.

Some amazing fabrics for cushion covers and bags

Followed by a walk in the sunshine around the old port and down to the beach
where we had a coffee in the sunshine
and a paddle
then back to the old port for lunch
followed by a wander around the shops
and a visit to the wonderful little yarn and fabric shop Mercerie l'Aguillee
