And one more pic before bedtime...

Secret Gardens was also my favorite book growing up. I think Wendy, you picked this also for your favorite book challenge. Whilst walking between venues in the village of Ste-Marie-Aux-Mines we came across this garden door that reminded me of that book.

Exhibit 2 was held at the museum I mentioned earlier. In addition to info on the mining in the area they also had several looms set up. The quilting exhibit was showing what students had made after a workshop. They were page sized and the exhibit consisted of two "books" of the completed pages.

Exhibit 1 at Chapelle Saint Joseph was an exhibit by artist Genevieve Attinger from France.

The quilt show was great! Quilts and other fiber arts were displayed in 21 sites spread over 4 villages of the Val d'Argent area. (They used to mine silver in this area, hence the name. I know that because one of the venues was mining museum.) The setting was beautiful. The weather left something to be desired and if if wasn't for that and my low camera battery I'd show more pictures of the area. I will share a sample or two of the different exhibits. Some you have seen before if you are caught up on the shows here, for example Sheila Frampton Cooper was there with an exhibit of her quilts. There was also a display entitled the Best of QuiltCon 2015 from the Modern Quilt Guild. Many of those looked familiar to me, though it was awesome to see in person. I can't remember if Pam Rupert was on Quilt Show or not, but it seems I have seen her quilts before.

Rainy weather all day, but didn't let that stop us. Each village has beautiful flowers everywhere!

Wow,, Wendy you have a memory like a vault! My DH went by himself because I really wasn't feeling up to the 8 hour drive (which he took in 2 shots on the way, but did the entire thing yesterday on the way home). Besides, it was only London, Ontario - besides missing him I also missed going to my favourite Kaffe supply store. And missed the Strarford Theatre festival. Oh well, next year. :)

Hi ~ I have a friend who has attended this show at least twice and love it. I'm looking for information on the Pour L'Amour de Fil show held in Nantes in April. Has anyone been before? A friend and I are thinking of going and would like some reviews before committing. Thanks!

The closest I've been to France is a car sitting in my driveway right now that we are keeping for friends who are now in France for 3 weeks! We live near the airport, so often let people park for free in our driveway and then drive them to and pick them up from the airport. If needed, they stay overnight. At least I'm a small part of the travel adventures and it's my way of partially realizing my dream of having a B&B.

I can't go this year but hoping I might next year. I might just make it to Maastricht in October though. I hope you have a great time Lorna and please post some photos and tell us all about it.

Wow Lorna! I am feeling a little green right now. I've only been to France once, 9 years ago, and I fell in love with it. I went on a trips with my cousins. We did not make it to the Alsace region, but were close. We went to the Franche-Comte region where out great grandfather came from. Not surprising since my maiden name is Comte. We had a wonderful time and the people there were so friendly. I would love to be able to attend the quilt shows. I am glad your DH is happy going with you. Enjoy the show and share your pictures with us.

And I'll sit on your shoulders. I've heard it's an amazing exhibition, wish I was there. The Scottish church shows were fun.

So good being retired :cheer:
