Dreaming of Provence Color Story

Color Story for April 16

COLOR STORY OF THE WEEK: Dreaming of Provence 
  
This week's color story was based on the Glacier yarn we received from Classic Elite.
We were so inspired by the mix of lavender, green, grey, and cream.
It makes me want to pick lavender in the French countryside.
On honeymoon in France, my husband and I were enthralled with 
the French planting lavender between the rows of grape fields.
It made the whole winemaking experience somehow that much more romantic!
The scent of lavender wafting through the fields
bees buzzing between blossoms and grapevines
and the hardworking wine maker, with purple-stained hands, sampling the fruit.
Put a plate of goat cheese with fruit and a glass of Beaujolais in my hand...
...I am there!
