Love it, as usual.  I sound like I'm repeating myself, don't I?

WOW, Nutty Tea is amazing. And that Woodland is amazing.

aloha all and happy monday! this weekend we were able to see our 3-yr old godson who recently moved back (with his parents and sister) to the US from Switzerland. last time we saw him was at his baptism in January 2011 so this was a wonderful reunion. he lived on a mountain called Pilatus and is the inspiration for this week's first color.

and the inspirational photo

enjoy!

This is one of my fav of your inspirational pics... of course, the fiber/yarn isn't bad either.  LOL 

mine too! the weather was overcast for most of the week we were in Switzerland then the last day there the sun broke through and i was able to take this photo. so many shades of blue :)

I'm not sure I've ever seen so many different shades of blue on one pic, I think that is what draws me to it.

This is what I get for trying to sneak in my own playing on the computer while helping DH with business things!  I typed this reply:

I've always love these blues!

and then didn't post it! =)

Oh how pretty!  Into my favs it goes!!  I really love this one Christina!!

I've run out of superlatives to describe your work Christina!  I am very enamored of this photo and roving :D)

Beautiful!  Hope you had tons of fun with your DGS. 

thanks so much everyone! we did have great fun with our Godson and family members. it's amazing that i didn't realize how much i had missed them until i was hugging and kissing them then it hit me. maybe i was trying to put it out of my mind so i wouldn't be sad :) it is great having them back near us, but we've also had fun visiting them in New Zealand and Switzerland - gave us a great excuse to travel!

so, to continue on the 'Swiss' theme this week, how about some
