Paris!

I know this is a quilting blog but no sewing going on for me right now. We are in Paris for a week and I thought I'd show a few pictures of this beautiful place anyway. We went to see Mona at the Louvre, this was as close as we could get to her. There is always a crowd and it's roped off so you can't get too close to her and this is using the zoom on my camera.

The entrance to the Louvre is under the pyramid. It's a huge museum and we could not see it all in one day.

Inside the court yard of the Louvre is filled with sculptures from Roman and Egyptian times.

I don't know what this lady did during her life, I'm guessing this scupture was a reminder to others of what not to do or this will happen to you....very tough times I'd say.

So you won't see any quilting updates for the next couple of weeks, I might be able to show a few more pictures of our travels in Paris and Rome as time permits and internet connections are available.

Happy Quilting.

Oh, lucky you! We went to Paris last March and I loved it there. Can't wait to return. My favorite museum was the Orangerie.

We have a friend who just returned from Paris on Friday. His favorite thing was the catacombs beneath Notre Dame. But he was NOT happy with the bed bugs that found him!
