We are home--trying to readjust to the PST time zone which is 9 hours different from France. Loved our trip--wonderful places, wonderful people, delicious food and wine. I bought a couple of sewing items--some bias ribbon in Chinon at a delightful Bernina dealer. A magazine in Blois, a magazine in Nice...nothing too extravagant~didn't see fabric I wanted at a price I was willing to pay to drag it home. I did appreciate that life in general is much more expensive in France and that the kind of stash/excess I sometimes indulge in would not be possible for me there.
I am anxious to get back to sewing--I need a couple of days to finish adjusting to life here, spoiling the grands, reading the mail, etc.
