le 14 juillet!

Stop calling it Bastille Day! it is the name that English speaking countries have given to le 14 juillet, of course celebrated on the 14 of July each year. In France it is formally called Le Féte Nationale or the National Celebration or even Le Quatorze Juillet.

a day of celebrations of French culture. So much more than French wine… it is the French National Day or so many names for 1 day of the year. Canvas by Unique New Zealand, which is in my I’m going to stitch this someday in my lifetime pile.

So what exactly is Bastille Day? Well today is the anniversary of the storming of The Bastille and the unity of the French Nation during the French Revolution…

What could make you think about France more than Julia? Julia Child that is.

Julia loved cats! So for more than one reason, I gotta love this lady…

There was a kitty-kat adoption at my local Petco with lots of kittens this past weekend and of course I had to take a look-see. When I got home I threatened AlleyCat that maybe I might trade her in for a new model if she doesn’t behave herself…

Like this…

Even though she looks pretty cute sitting there…she is somewhere she knows she’s NOT supposed to be! She was busted and as soon as I ask “and what do you think you are doing there?” she sasses me and then jumps down. What am I to do with her?

and until next time… keep on stitching

About Vicky

Needlepoint, morning noon and evening! what could be better than this? I work on the computer in the daylight hours editing stitch guides and drawing stitches that you will see in the next Needlepoint Now for your stitching pleasure! In between this, there is time for taking pictures of my stitching adventures, Facebook and writing stitch guides for canvas that I am stitching for Needle Deeva, Maggie, Ruth Schmuff and others. Mostly needlepoint you ask? well we will talk about my cats Sylvester and AlleyCat, better known as "the brat". Of course I can't forget Felix who was the love of my life for over 14 years. He broke my heart as he departed for the Rainbow Bridge last year. Oh did I mention baseball?

  1. My Sienna is always getting into places she knows she isn’t supposed to be….like messing about in the garage. Since it’s one of her favorite things to do, sneaking out there behind me (she doesn’t know I can sometimes(!) see her slink out there when the door is open), I let her play in there until she gets bored and trots back in for a treat or a rub. If she’d only learn to close and lock the door when she returns….

    I love Julia Child! Is that a book about Julia and her cats? Must look up.

    Heureux le 14 juillet!

  2. I recently finished stitching that Julia Child canvas. Just love it! I’m now debating whether to frame it or make it into a stand up or easel back.
