Can you spot the hexies?
Nadine and I had some stitching fun while in Provence. Mostly in the late afternoons and evenings or while our husbands took their naps.
|"Shall we have a snack while we stitch?"|
Never in my life did I know there was such a thing as a Raspberry Grape,
or a Pineapple heirloom tomato!
and the taste? HEAVENLY!
But Oh-- how I loved the melons!
|Delicious, fragrant, sweet Melon de Cavaillon|
It might not be surprising that these fresh slices inspired a Charm Hexi-diamond.
Nadine had found this lady who was willing to sell us her provence fabric scraps,
and I was so happy to be able to include some here:
|Can you spot the olives on the far left and the little crickets |
"Les Cigales de Provence" third down from the Right?
By the way, I will be sharing these scraps with you in our little souvenir giveaway! I thought you might enjoy that... :)
And, in case you are wondering what inspired this diamond...
I don't think you'd be surprised it was these: agh, I am so predictable!
|don't they make a lovely pair?|
I have to admit that I am counting the days for the boys to be back in school. I can tell that the level of crankiness is reaching critical levels. But we had a wonderful summer. And at the end of it all, as I look back and see that despite of it all, it was indeed pretty Fantastic!

so please excuse me as I go and collapse for a bit...
Looking forward to replying to your lovely comments and catching up with you and your blogs!
Thinking of you, as always,
