Hi, everyone! I hope you have been having a good summer. I can't believe it is August already. It's been hot here in Colorado and I discovered that cross stitch was the perfect hobby for this weather. I'd sit in the living room under the ceiling fan and stitch away.
I started cross stitching years ago and put it down for 15 years. Last year I started picking up some great magazines from the UK again. It was a happy moment when I opened up my Longaberger Picnic basket and found all my floss clean, organized, and ready to use.
This past May, I got to spend a week in Paris with my sister and brother in law. After that trip, I decided that I'd start stitching some of the places that I've been lucky to have visited as a special memento.
This pattern is from the Cross Stitch Crazy magazine. What drew me to it is the vibrant colors. I still need to get it framed but at least all the hard work is done.
Is there a hobby that you put aside for awhile and returned to it later? I'd love to hear what it was.
