What is new?

Hello everyone! Maman is very busy with her studies.
She has a big exam coming up in one week.
We have a Christmas tree up at the Bleu Manoir.
There are pretty lights on it.
We will decorate it very soon.
Mammon's big computer broke an it is in the repair shop being fixed.
I don't know how to fix my spelling mistakes on the iPad.
So I will say good bye for now.
Love from Yvette Marie. Xoxoxo

11 11 11 on the 11th day of the 11th month at the 11th hour!

Maman has borrowed this photo from Tante Peggy who made it.
I do so wish Maman would make one just like it for me!
Maman is buried in WWI research right now.
She has forgotten all about sewing. But it is so exciting!
You can read about what she is discovering on her blog at House of Houben.
The outfit above was sold by GL from 1915 to 1917.
This is the era that Maman is studying. Her great Uncle William Williams died when he was only 19 in Greece on Feb 22, 1917. He was fighting with the Royal Welch Fusiliers.
That's why I'd love to have this uniform.
