28 07 2013

Hello,

Today I want to share something special with you.  Visiting the Shetland  Isles is on my Bucket list.  And while I am there I would like to visit the premiere yarn company making Shetland Yarn, Jamieson and Smith.  I have used this yarn for years in various projects, not knowing that one day I would actually own Marley who is a Shetland sheep.  When this blog arrived in my in box this morning I knew that I wanted to share it with you.  I hope you enjoy the article and  the beauty of the shawl.

Len’s Memorial.

My friend Lynn’s husband passed away recently.   He was 92 and lived an interesting life  He was a boiler designer by trade.  He and she both were great helps to me when I first arrived here.   The house was full of emergencies then, this and that breaking.  They always came when I called.  My sheep spent many a wonderful summers on their land.  We called it summer camp.  Len lived a wonderful life, with his beloved wife and this wonderful land.   I hope you enjoy the picture of this day.  The Memorial was planned with everyone in mind, family and friends gathered.  It was a great day to remember Len and visit with family and friends.  This picture is of some old and a new friend sitting on the studio porch.

SOMETHING TO DREAM  AND PLAN FOR

This week I got an e-mail from Deanne Fitzpatrick that she was holding a one day event in July of 2014 with Kaffe Fasset.  For those of you who don’t know of his works please visit http://www.kaffefasser.com .  I have been following him for years his colors in knitting and fabrics are astounding.  I thought about it overnight and decided why not.  I e-mailed and the 1 day hooking class was filled within a few hours.  Oh my could I get on a waiting list?  Yes I could and Deanne is trying to get him for another day.  I got an email late in the  day  Wednesday that I was in the second day, yesterday I called and gave them my information and they told me that this class was full with a waiting list too.  Its a year away but oh how exciting. I will be planning my trip to a place I love Nova Scotia throughout that time.  He and his assistant will help you draw a pattern and pick out your colors.  There is a book signing on Friday night and I think I will attend if there is room.
