Le petit Prince

A few weeks ago I posted a picture and a little text from the book"Le petit Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry on instagram.

Hélène told me about a limited edition in a dialect where she lives;
 Switzerland, Canton Fribourg.

'Le Piti Prinhyo'

It is printed in only 2500 copies.
Wow
It would be wonderful if I could add this book to my collection....


She was kind enough to send me a copy and in return I am going to sew a doll quilt for her.






When I was searching for a background I wanted to choose something soft and fresh.


I chose a golden yellow. Like The little Prince his hair.

“You see the wheat fields over there? I don't eat bread. For me, wheat is of no use whatever. Wheat fields say nothing to me. Which is sad. But you have hair the color of gold. So it will be wonderful, once you've tamed me! The wheat, which is golden, will remind me of you. And I'll love the sound of the wind in the wheat...”




'Le Piti Prinhyo'


It is a lovely idea that as soon as I finish this mini quilt it will travel to Switzerland.

Thank you so much Hélène

What a wonderful exchange. We read Le Petit Prince in high school French and loved it. I should pick it up again.

Fabuloso intercambio, que me ha hecho investigar si había una edición en gallego, el idioma de Galicia y sí, existe.
Gracias por mostrar siempre cosas tan bonitas!
