Poppies and Lace – an Odyssey!

Just in time for this week’s hotly anticipated (ha!) heatwave – I have some time off and am going on a little jaunt with my family.

It’s the first time that Mum, Dad, my brother Alex and I have holidayed together in at least 25 years (and no, I’m not revealing my age!)

I’ll give you a few clues as to where we may be going…  Firstly from Mum’s garden…

Secondly, I expect to be drinking this (in moderation, mesdames et monsieurs!)

And thirdly, we shall be staying within a stone’s throw of this beautiful piece of work…

Answers on a postcard, please to:-

Lou (AKA Chester Bunnynuts)
C/O Bayeux
Calvados
Normandy
La Belle France!

Apart from the lovely markets and the Bayeux Tapestry itself, our trip is as a homage to my uncle, Bill Vernon, who fought in Normandy and helped liberate many of the villages around where we are staying.

I hope to be posting some poignant and interesting photos with help from my brother, who should have been a military historian, such is the breadth and depth of his knowledge of, in particular, the two World Wars (although he seems to know a great deal about most historical conflicts).

Needless to say I will be taking a few projects with me…  More on that later!

Happy crafting!
