I kept taking pictures of all the windows and doors which were painted in an array of aqua and blue. They were just so appealing to me against the old stone buildings. It just made me want to stitch a new project.
As chartreuse is my favorite color you can imagine how these fields of mustard were so appealing. There were hundreds of acres of fields all the way through the Loire Valley. I have never seen so much vibrant color in a landscape.
This passed summer I planted two wisteria over my new deck at home. I am hoping that in a few years they look as wonderful as the ones I saw in France.
Kelly also ordered chocolate mouse one evening and was amazed when the waiter arrived at the table with this huge bowl. The idea was that she was to serve herself the amount she wanted.
You can't go to Paris without visiting the Eiffel Tower. Wendy made the comment that every time she visits it she is still amazed at the size of the structure. We thought this picture may give you a better idea if you have not had a chance to visit.
We really had a wonderful time together. It was great to spend time with Kelly, Wendy, my Dad and Cathy. It was also wonderful to have them at the show in Nantes and for them to be a part of the launch of my new book. I thank them all for all they have done to make it possible.
It was not possible for Wendy, Cathy and I to go to Paris without indulging in a little fiber. So we managed to find a couple of stores to satisfy our need. Now we need to make time to do the projects!
