Today I found out that my proposal to teach at the Elora workshops was accepted. I am super excited about it. I think I will be a really good teacher. I have tons of experience teaching. I have been told that I am a really fun teacher too. It is going to be good!

I used a photo of shattered glass that I took at the wrecking yard this past spring as the background. I love this photo and will likely use it in my art work again! I added beads and fibres. I printed the photo on paper and adhered it to fusible interfacing before adding stitching.

Well, we happened upon the best little street. It had a great deal of stores that were very interesting. We were out early so the stores weren't open. That was a bit disappointing but it was also good. We got a few photos of some interesting windows and I am sure the shop owners wouldn't have liked that had they been there to see us. As we window shopped we happened upon some stairs that led up to a park that was above the stores. How cool is that? We enjoyed the park immensely as we made our way back to where we started. The first cool store that we had happened upon was a stitching/quilting store and it was open by that time. Again, how cool is that! A perfect way to end our trip France. giggles

The bracelet was calling my name. I wear a lot of this color so it was perfect me. Plus it sparkles so!

Truly the day at Giverny was the highlight of the trip. So beautiful and peaceful.

Honestly the supplies that I find here in thrift stores are just as good and a LOT cheaper. I can always find a bargain here at home. I hope that doesn't sound like complaining. I mean to sound extremely grateful for my beautiful life here in Canada. I am truly blessed beyond measure! I am also grateful for such a wonderful trip and the chance to shop for some treasures.
