Paris in May

Spent a glorious long weekend in Paris last month.
The usual picture, taken from the 'Batobus' boat on the Seine in glorious sunshine.

Some delectable looking pastries! Did not taste any as the queue was so long in the shop I did not feel like waiting.

Crafty Things - What I've been doing

Although I've not been blogging lately, I have been reading other blogs and I've been crafting. Below are just some of my FOs

Some socks:
From the lift; pink socks for my sister made from 'Fabel' sock yarn from Scandinavian Knitting Design. I really love this sock yarn and it's a very good price
Next are the lovely blue socks, made from Koigu yarn which I received in a gift from my swap partner ages ago. It's such soft yarn and they should be really warm for the winter
The brown socks are made from gorgeous alpaca/wool yarn bought at the Avoca sale. I gave these ones to another sister as a birthday gift.
And last but not least are the two tone socks made with yarn left over from the first pair and a ball of navy Regia sock yarn. (a gift for my daughter)
You can really get 2 pairs of socks from 150g of sock yarn!

It was my daughter's birthday earlier this month and I made this cushion from various pieces of fabric in my stash. She really loved it and I was delighted with the result.
