Marché de Noël St Emilion

I am so lucky living in such a beautiful part of the world and within half and hour of a World heritage site like St Emilion. I hope these pictures give flavour of the village and our stand. The weather was very cold and crisp, and on our way home there were flakes of snow…
All tucked up now with full tummies and the woodburner going to keep everyone, especially Smokey, content.

Le marché

We set off at 6.45 am for our first day at market at Eymet. It was raining when we set off, but the sun came out after dawn and it turned out to be a lovely day. The other stall holders said it was really quiet, but we were quite pleased with our first outing and have plans to improve the stand for future visits.

This is a great result!

I have pressed on since my New Year’s resolution to finish the throw and today I finished it too. It has been more than 3 years in production (although most of that was waiting to sew up the squares!) This was the starting point for Alba Yarns. Most of the yarn and the beads for it were sourced from the internet and gave me idea for the business, so it is delightful to see it complete. Although I chose the colours for the house here when it was our holiday home and we have different furishings now, the colours still work well.
