fun stuff: yay for purple

upon seeing our car in the drive way, 
a wonderful friend and neighbour came over for a quick visit
and to hear a few highlights about our paris adventure
(lucky her...she wasn't inundated by all my photo posts on facebook)

she also brought me a bag of her left over yarn...with tons of purple!!!
so thanks to ellen (xoxoxo), i've casted on another scrap blanket.
(my sunny paris blanket is still in the suitcase)
also, after a quick visit to our local library and browsing the shelves,
i picked up and started reading kline's orphan train.

so far i haven't been able to put it down!!!



  1. More yarn, yay!!! How nice of your neighbour to pass it on. Can't wait to see the blanket.

  2. Mmm...that is a great purple! And a great book...read it last summer. Welcome home!

  3. Oh, that is a wonderful book and purple...well, we all know how I feel about purple,...it's one of my favorites!

  4. I loved that book!! I am glad you are back and settled in at home with wonderful memories :)

  5. Free yarn is good. Free purple yarn is GREAT!!!!

  6. Glad you had a great trip. The yarn looks lovely, and free!

  7. Love that purple! I'm also highly amused by your library's ad campaign sticker. It never occurred to me to think of the fine on an overdue book as a daily rental fee.


thank you for your kind words... they really do make my day !!!
