Good grief! Where has yet another day gone?!
Last week, two boxes, overflowing with fiber, showed up on my front porch.
The first was from dear Alison. She’s such an invaluable resource to me for all things fiber, and now, some of her stash that no longer sings to her has moved east, where it most assuredly does sing to me… and to MJ, who is just crazy about the round ball of roving. If I remember correctly, the cone shaped fiber is wool, and the round one is unknown. Thank you, Alison! I do adore those colors!
The other package was from Kathy and her pack. This is a mohair blend batt. I just love the colors. I’m on a blue kick, in case anyone has missed that.
This batt is named The Spa. It reminds me that I need to MAKE time to get to the day spa! It is a BFL batt, and on a rainy day like today, I can only wish I could go home and spin up some of this sunshine.
This is a lovely new base in the Gypsyknits line. It’s a cashmere blend, and this colorway is Thunder. I can only hope that today’s thunder and rain green the grass up a bit.
Regular readers might recall that Gretchen has a thing for cashmere. Sure enough, before I could scoop the yarn to safety, she had sprinted up the steps and come to inspect the latest lovely to arrive for HER stash.
Of course, the girls weren’t forgotten. Mr. Bettis took full credit for the Sissy-allowed treats, but a little birdy told me that Mr. B’s owner actually fetched the meat-free cookies. I can’t tell you how much it means to me that my friends (and their spouses!) go to the extra trouble to find treats for my DIVA. I can assure you, both dogs heartily appreciate it!
The girls would have liked to have posted their own thank-you, but it just wasn’t that kind of weekend.
I tried to get a photo of the girls savoring their new favorite treats, but I’m afraid that they were so into them that all I have is an unimpressive cleaning up the crumbs shot.
How was your weekend? I’ll have to tell you more about ours another day…
