Gentle Friends so sorry to leave you hanging yesterday without a word or email or anything, but we had two call outs and work was a bit overwhelming so something had to give.....
I have stitched a bit on the LK "Mystery Hallowe'en" piece and here's and updated snaperoo...
I was trying out some different lighting on my camera and flash options and came up with this snap, although it is wrinkled to death it does come very close to showing the actual colour of the linen. For some reason a heavy flash washes the grey out of the linen and turns it more yellow/tan. I would love to get this sucker finished up and move on to one of the two Christmas stitches I have kitted up ready and waiting. I am waffling between which to start first, an older piece from last year or a new design from this year.... one is very traditional in colour a feel and the other not so traditional..... I'll have to chew on this for a bit longer.
Now, to the trip.... I have been simmering on the back burners of my mind taking a trip this Fall - since I'm turning the big 50, I thought it would be a fun way to celebrate - so I narrowed down what I wanted to visit and was getting all my ducks in a row...... and into my lap plopped a huge opportunity. Some really good friends of mine are taking a house in Perros-Guirec, Brittany for the month of September and have invited me to come and stay there for the last part of their vacation.
Now, I had already decided I was going to the North of France, I've been all over the south of France a few times and really found it gorgeous!! But, I had never gone north of Paris, no reason, just never thought about it until I got to thinking about this Fall. My friends are renting a car and so we'll be driving all over the place visiting and seeing different things... especially looking forward to seeing Mont Saint-Michel. I have tacked on a few days for myself in Paris after Brittany but before I come home. I have been to Paris a few times and have always enjoyed the City of Lights!!!! I will certainly make time to visit this beautiful place...
......The Sainte Chapelle - I have been here twice before and it is my Number one place to see in Paris!! Like, whenever I have been to London I have always made a space of time to visit Salisbury Cathedral, and will always make the time.
Here's a question for you, after seeing the Big Sights... La Tour Eiffel, a goodly hunk of le Mussee du Lourve, Mussee d'Orsay, Musee National du Moyen Age, and most of the great Churches in and around Paris, what would you make time to do???? I am open to any suggestions. Thanks.
That's about it for today sports fans. Thanks for stopping in, do stop again.
