Santorini and Naxos

It's been too long since I've posted.
I hope you have been well!

I've been a little preoccupied lately as I have been very fortunate to travel to the Greek Isles
with my daughter, Little Bug, for a "Mamma Mia" trip.

What beautiful islands of nature's and man's artistry:

Now, I so want to crochet a Bougainvillea something or the other:

And check out this crocheted arbor valance:
 Here's a close-up:
This gives me I need anymore. Ack!

And we found a 24 hour bakery...
We were in Seventh Heaven!!!

We had such a good time and
 I am so grateful for this trip of a
 lifetime to celebrate Little Bug's 30th Birthday!

But I'm back at the Koselig Hekler Hus, and have written the pattern for the
Mitered Blossom Dishcloth:
It's been a long time coming!
This pattern is now available and can be found by clicking here.

I hope you've had many days of 

while I've been away!
