Follow-up Friday – The “Monsoon Stole”

maRRose - CCC --- Monsoon Stole-23As far as crochet and finishing old wips is concerned, I’m afraid there’s not all that much to show you this gorgeous Fall Follow-up Friday.

You may recall, however, I was lucky enough to have been treated to an “all-inclusive” 4-day trip to Cannes/France by my sweet brother and his husband (gifted as a birthday present, back in February), and I love to share some photos of that wonderful voyage with you.
