La Rentrée




    Here in France the new year really starts in September.  This time is called 'la rentrée' - everyone comes back from the summer holidays, children start school, clubs are joined, taxes are paid, I go back to work ...

     ... and so I thought I'd give a little review of the embroidery work I have done so far...


     I'd also like to thank you all so much for your lovely comments, and  to welcome all my new followers!


Corsets, Caps, Bags, Hats and Shoes ...







Fire Screens, Bed Hangings, Chairs and Seats...






      





Bed Linens and Cushions...






Hopefully, over the next year, I'll expand my repertoire, as I've noticed that it is exceedingly floral!


Have a wonderful Rentrée!

Jonquil

  13. Just came back from Bretagne a few days ago where everything was focused on La Rentrée, even the new Vogue, which I thought was funny.

    Well, first few days of school are nearly over, here as well. After a relaxing vacation it is never easy when the alarm wakes you what seems like the middle of the night.

    But seeing your lovely embroidery makes me want to want to go and work on some miniatures again. I bought lots of embroidery silk a few months ago, so now I should really get on with it as well, don't you think?

    A little late, but Bonne Rentrée Jonquil!
