Due to being tired after our big day and miscalculations in setting an alarm, we slept in until about 11:00! Not the way we had planned to start our 2nd day in Paris, but the rest sure felt good.
Anyway, I didn't care about sightseeing as much as I cared about visiting a local cross stitch shop. We managed to find Le Bonheuir des Dames and I floated around in heaven while the girls waited patiently!
I'm attempting to be good about not acquiring too much stash, but I had to get a few things! A pair of embroidery scissors with an Eiffel Tower design was a definite must . . .
As well as a beautiful embroidered pouch to keep them in.
I thought this little zipper bag with the rick rack trim was very cute. Now I just have to figure out what to stitch on it!
The shop had several models of cross stitch fans on the wall. This one looks like a fun stitch.
And a book of herb designs with fabulous patterns and project ideas.
That done, we set off to squeeze in the Notre Dame Cathedral before our train left. It's such a beautiful place. I really loved all the carvings. We did go inside, but weren't allowed to take any pictures.
Of course I had to get a few snaps of the Seine.
Then it was a dash to get the metro back to the train station in time. I thought the sign at this metro station was very cool.
We arrived in London exausted but very pleased with the trip.
