Paris Cross Stitch

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.
