Pour l'Amour du Fil.... OR For The Love of Thread... ;-)

I have been to France twice recently...first to the Aiguille en Fete in Paris in February. Where I didn't take many photos as it was so crowded one could hardly hear oneself think!!!!

Then, last week this time I was to be found in Nantes...with glorious sunshine and my camera overheating <grin> I was attending Pour l'amour du Fil as the title says. Where they were celebrating 150years of the quilt by Jane Stickle, otherwise fondly known as 'Dear Jane'.

There were many quilts of all sizes and colours, on display and I think i may have photographed most of them. I know I missed some, and others were woefully out of focus but I don't think I did too badly considering!

I'd like to insert a slideshow here of all the pics but I don't know how to, so until then I will try to put one in the sidebar so you can see all the pics from the show! Later I may add some other pics of sightseeing malarky...
