this week - back to St Germain





This weekend's stitching - automatically I turned to the somewhat neglected project box.
Perhaps this is my way of dealing with the feeling of sadness and helplessness of this weekend. 
The "St Germain" quilt is named after and paying a homage to that  beautiful part of Paris, St. Germain.
DH & I spent our honeymoon in Paris, 45 years ago this week.
















I am now working on outer borders, 2 long and 2 shorter ones.
 One of the long borders is finished and yesterday I started on the other side, to mirror the first border.
It is a dull weekend, not ideal for taking pictures.






























Earlier in the week I finished the yellow flower on the wool embroidery and nearly completed another one;



 I need to get more of the main colour thread to finish this one.
