Summertime

maRRose - CCC: the month of July (2014)It’s been a while since my last blog post, I guess summer stepped in the way!

Over the past few weeks we’ve been camping in the South of France and enjoying weeks of lovely warm and sunny weather at home. Thís is so my kind of season ……
Oh, yes, I like winter nights too, when we cozy up in front of the fireplace (crochet, book, magazine, coffee and/or wine right next to me), but these weeks filled with sunshine, gorgeous flowers everywhere, lazy meals outside ….. just terrific! maRRose - CCC: summertime 2014 maRRose - CCC: summertime 2014, Saint Tropez A lot of crochet was done also (as you can see in the 1st photo), but not a whole lot reached a finishing stage, so I have barely any “ta-dah’s” to share right now.

A “ta-dah” of all sorts was my Instagram account hitting 6000 followers: wow!
The “6000” was crocheted as a token of my appreciation.

Are you a fan of summer too? What is your favorite kind of season?

Wishing you a very happy day – no matter the kind of weather you’re experiencing!

Love,
