The Love Letters

So after my whirlwind travel post, I've been home for awhile and this is what I've been up to.

You can read all about that project on lovebeadlove.blogspot.com !  I've had so much fun creating and embellishing these letters and from the looks of it so have others.  If you're so inclined, have a go, the letters are great fun and who can't use a little more love in their lives!

Where have I been?

I've been all over!  After leaving Nice on our November trip we continued on down the coast of Italy, up to Croatia, then Bay of Kotor, many Greek islands and finished in Athens.  Wow, that was a magical trip with so many highlights!  The Seaborne Sojourn Mediterranean cruise.

The Acropolis was amazing!  Such  presence against the blue sky.

The new Acropolis museum was so excellently curated it was quite a treat.  We spent a peaceful two days just wandering the city.

Then off to our local San Diego Airstream groups rally in Chula Vista, always a treat.

I busied myself with beading the alphabet....just because.

Next up a day trip with the grandkids to visit Disneyland....18,000 steps, this grandma was tired!

Parked in the Santa Cruz redwoods for the holidays.  I love this spot, although it can get dreary in the sunless days of winter.

So I busied myself with peace, this one is reversible and a gift for a dear friend.

Seems that LOVE is everywhere if you look close.  We got to see the Rose Bowl parade floats being built while joining another airstream rally in Pasadena.

We had front row seats for the parade and it was wonderful.  Look at this fanciful guy!

Finally some time to relax!  A moebius scarf for a friend I love. If you measure love by the number of cast off stitches this one was huge!
