patchworkqueen Turning into a very productive rainy bank holiday...... Just made a couple of pillowcases using a tutorial from Film in the Fridge. Worked perfectly, I'm sure I'll be making some more very soon. I'm thinking of flannel ones next. 5d

patchworkqueen Someone was very pleased that her big brother came out - she gets fed up as he tends to be 'too busy' for family days out these days. 2w

patchworkqueen Working on a new cushion cover to go on my bed.... A little treat for myself. Also giggling at the piccies of my kids that are next to the sewing table - they may be a few years older now but they still have the same fun loving spirits 2w

patchworkqueen If you are in Paris go to St Etienne Du Mont right behind the #pantheon. So amazing ... This is the only 'screen' left in Paris and it's amazing. They used to go up there to do sermons.... The whole church is interesting and worth a visit. 3w

patchworkqueen At the #pantheon today I was able to have a long conversation with my daughter about one of my female inspirations. I read about Marie Curie as a teenager and have found her life and scientific works fascinating.... Important to have female aswell as make role models. 3w
  •   stitchoutsidetheditch ️we should all love Marie curie. 3w
  •   hellofromcat My oldest went as Marie Curie to bookweek one year - she'd read a book about her, so figured she counted as a book character! We made a test tube necklace for her, as it was kind of tricky to come up with a costume. 3w

patchworkqueen Weirdest thing we've come across in Paris so far is this pest control shop in amongst some cafés.... The right hand window is full of dead (stuffed) rats hanging from metal traps. #paris 3w
  •   mjandco Just like in Ratatouille! 3w
  •   patchworkqueen @mjandco I think that might be what it's all about we went on the new ratatouille ride at Disney yesterday so we've kept up the theme! 3w
  •   jeaniehlm Love the title of the shop! 3w
  •   relovedpreloved Looks very dramatic ! Pest control is a serious business 3w
  •   helenangharad It's all a bit Diagon Alley! 'Destruction des animaux nuisibles'! 3w

patchworkqueen Loved the new sculpture that has appeared since our last trip to Versailles.... Looking towards the palace from the gardens you don't even see it..., fabulous artistry and shows you can mix the new with the old. #versailles 3w

patchworkqueen Here you go.... A taster of what the inside of Versailles is like ... The Hall of Mirrors. The opulence is astounding. #versailles 3w

patchworkqueen Here's another long queue I got involved in this week... 2.5 hrs in the blazing sun queuing to get into Versailles (that was with tickets!). However it really is something that has to be seen to be believed... #versailles 3w
