Just A Quick Post

I finished my Traveling Woman Shawl and just love it. I also have finished the shawl for my Mom's 79th birthday. It is a modification of a Stephen West Colonade.

Traveling Women Back

I was looking out the window yesterday and saw our friendly neighborhood squirrel, who usually only shows up in the Winter. I wondered why he had come onto the deck, today I found out. He is digging in my flower pots. He is either going to be dead or I am going to have to buy some squirrel repelant. He better watch out.

Happy Mothers Day

It was a lovely Mothers Day weekend. I was able to go to Maryland Sheep and Wool, had a wonderful time. I was very wise with my money, but got some beautiful things.

We went to dinner at the Shamrock with my parents, a good friend and our beautiful daughter. Our food was wonderful and the company was fantastic.

I am very busy sewing and have promised my daughter a dress. She reminded me she had paid $70 for material and she would like her dress by July. Is she trying to tell me something?
Here are the rest of the pictures of my finds, I love the hat, I got it for the Cruise that Louise and I are taking in September.


The fiber is 100% baby Mohair I can't wait to spin.


The sock yarn is for a shawl and the purple yarn I don't know what I am going to do with. The T-Shirt and bag are mementos.



All in all it was a wonderful weekend.
