A Treasure

Remember when we went on and on about our trip to France this spring.  We had such a great time! I mean Paris - in the spring - with gorgeous weather.  We were so lucky.
Then we headed to Nantes and the spectacular Pour l'Amour du Fil show.  
Kaffe Fasset and Brandon Mably's house.

Needlepoint pillow of Kaffe's design

One of Di Ford's lovely quilts

Not only was it visually stunning - we met so many friends - new and old.  

After one of our great dinners out with Kaffe and Brandon a "trade" was suggested.  Of course I would trade!  Brandon was the recipient of one of my quilts and yesterday in the post, as the British would say, this arrived.
A fabulous scarf knitted by Brandon for ME!  He calls it Laurie's Pennants.  Thank you Brandon!

What a gossamer wrap of colorful scarf. Wearing that in the dead of winter gray, snow, and slush will keep your spirits high. Enjoy. A beautiful memory of a wonderful trip. Stephani in N. TX (

How great to have such a beautiful scarf as a trade! I'm attending a lecture and show by Kaffe and Brandon in October--can't wait to see their creativity in person!
