Yarn A Long






One of my sisters-by-choice is a member of Annie's Creative Woman Kit-of-the Month Club.
She doesn't crochet and since I do, she sent this kit to me.
I'm between yarn projects (just finished an afghan).
I needed an easy project while I decide what I want to try next. 
When I'm finished I'm going to send the scarf back to her!
Surprise!


Crochet Scarf




When I need to take a break from the crochet hook,
I grab a book.
I'm reading Paris Letters by Janice MacLeod.



Crochet Scarf



I was lucky enough to visit Paris with my knight in shining armor.
The Louvre with its amazing art collection 
and the crowd around Mona trying to get a picture of her.
The amazing windows of Sainte Chapelle.
I could spend days just sitting there.
Notre Dame
The amazing gardens and parks.
The Eiffel Tower -- it seems to hide and then suddenly -- there it is again.
The bread.
And, last but not least, 
I can still imagine the taste of the lemon tart I had in the little store on the Rue St Honore.
One must remember not to hurry these experiences, but stop and enjoy.


In Paris Letters we learn that Janice has job burnout.
She wants an answer to the question:
How much money does it take to quit your job?
She finds out, gives the reader suggestions,
and plans to spend a couple of years traveling in Europe.
She finds romance and a new business. 

Janice has a blog that you can find here.

I also follow Carol Gillott's blog.
She is another Paris lover and I enjoy her adventures in the city.

Wishing YOU well, much joy, lots of new yarn and a good book!

Your book sounds interesting. I am sure that your special sister will love to receive the scarf all crocheted up by you with love! xx

Two nice things done by two nice friends.

I have blog friend who is living in Paris - I love her photography. I like the colors of your new scarf.

Having just returned from France and Paris I can understand your enthusiasm. There just aren't enough hours in the day when you are there. I have just finishing a prayer shawl so have been working of pocket prayer shawls as they are not as time consuming...but I hear a call to start another one. Have a Happy and Holy Easter.

Gosh, this is pretty yarn. I finished Paris Letters a couple of days ago and am now continuing the French theme with Picnic in Provence. Vive la France.
