Fruits of Grenada, Caribbean Island

Sweet and Juicy. Starfruit just freshly picked from the tree. You should see the size of them and sooooo many just hanging on this tree. The owner of the home came over to see us and told us to just take as many as we like as she can’t keep them all. Wow. How amazing is that.

I tell you the Grenadian people are so nice and kind to us. I would be honored to call them my friends.

Clinton! Cutty needs you to help reach the fruit… great to have amazing friends in my life

IMG_9963Tint Of Autum is the perfect memory of this wonderful time in Europe.

I was so excited to be able to go on a holiday to Europe this past Fall 2017 a cruise

from Basel to Amsterdam on The Rhein River.

“So Beautiful and Memorys to keep”

“Spending time with my mom back home in Switzerland and with great friends….”

Exiting part of this trip was the Ms. Excellence Allegra our Ship stopped in Amsterdam….yessss guess who has a store there? Stephen West and Penelope…I just had to visit this store! We bought yarn and some stitch markers with…

Oh yes bicycle theme. So cool

 

File 2017-12-14, 12 02 57 PMReni my girlfriend was totally on board to find this store too. Though she doesn’t knit much she still bought yarn so this is where I came into play….happily I have to say

 

She fell in love with this Malabrigo Rios yarn, (Smiles I think it was the colour that she had to have)  in Amsterdam at Stephen and Penelope’s Store. See more info here for Tints Of Autum Pattern

So peaceful this is!img_7723

You should see the rocks and the crevasses, many covered with all kinds of moss.  Just love all the little things I see when taking time to look. Perfect moment.

So friedlich ist das!img_7704

Du solltest die Felsen sehen und die Äste, viele mit allen Arten von Moos bedeckt. Perfect den Foto Aparat  mit zu bringen. All die kleinen Dinge, die ich sehen, mann muss nur die Zeit nehmen zum schauen. Perfekter Moment.

A father son operation belonging to the Fair Trade Federation. I have been buying mittens and leg warmers whenever I see them. They even have coats that are all lined with super soft fleece too.

As we where leaving the second day, still inside the Metro Toronto Convention Center I had this view. CN Tower directly above me.

Always like to go to Toronto it is a stunning view when you drive in to the city it

Hope today will be a good day for you ladies working the show. Take a break, have a lunch you will need it for the take down after.
