Ellen and Me at the Antique Shop
Back in April I had a lovely visit with three special ladies. Ellen is a friend that Dawn had told to stop by when she was in America from the Netherlands. Ellen's daughter Liz and her friend Roelie were also along. It was so special to meet someone so far away. It's also hard to believe that it's been all summer since they visited. Time has flown so fast!
I received my new Spin-Off a couple of days ago and have been glued to the pages since. I always enjoy the magazine but this time it was particularly interesting to me. There were several articles about dyeing and about fine fibers, both my particular obsessions at the moment. I even noticed ads that were more interesting to me than usual. Interweave Press has changed hands and some people are worried. I've been taking a wait and see attitude; as long as a magazine is enjoyable, I'll pay for it. Probably this issue was laid out before the change in command, but I'm happy so far.
I worked on the computer yesterday, putting up more jewelry on the web page and Tias.com. Then last night I wound more yarn into skeins for the dye pot today. The sky is overcast this morning and there's a little rain, so I don't know if I'll get to do the bunny chores I had hoped to work on today.
