Knitting (and Quilting) in Nantes

London?!  London?!
Where's London?!


One is off to Nantes in April next year - that's in Brittany, France, for ....


 Pour l'Amour du Fil


... to exhibit tea cosies and to give knitting workshops and parler du Francais.

Carol, the head honcho at this publishing house and co-event-organiser of Pour l'Amour du Fil, found One at the Stitch and Craft show in London and invited One to come and play tea cosy with her in Nantes and well, what was One to say but...

Oui Oui Oui merci beaucoup. C'est magnifique! 
Taking over the WORLD!


AND Really Wild Tea Cosies will be translated into FRENCH in early 2012 in time for the show.


I LERVE the French (translation 2012)
and the Estonians (translation 2011)
and the Russians (translation 2012)

Oh alright!  I love the Aussies and the Kiwis and the Poms too.  I love everyone.  (it is one of those days!)

And in a the-web-is-a-wonderful-place search of Nantes One found this mechanical elephant and whole bevy of bestiary machines - a reason to go to Nantes all on its own.

That mechanical elephant ride sounds like so much fun !! I'm thinking that you simply must go to La Cigale....en francais on dit La Cigale n'est pas un restaurant comme les autres. .... http://www.lacigale.com/index.php?/Accueil/Accueil/cest-le-jour-et-la-nuit/id-menu-1.html s they say....La Cigale n’est pas une brasserie, c’est une institution du bonheur, un temple de la joie et du plaisir de vivre pour les Nantais et les gourmands de la terre entière. Enjoy!!!
Très magnifique !!! Next stop- world domination.
