I hope you all are doing well this fine sunny morning. We are. Our truck has been located, it is still in Kansas City (or it was the other day) it should be here sometime this weekend. Thank you so much for your support of my moving madness. It is so very good to know I am not alone, and the crazy passes quickly. While we have been waiting we have been making this yellow house ours (minus chooks). Since I can't hang plants from the house, my husband made me a hitching post. I filled my flower baskets with seedy mint. Hopefully it will revive it a bit. I love mint, and it is one herb that is almost impossible to kill. Our little garden in the back is doing well too. Happy day!
Yesterday Emma and I went out exploring for fabric shops. The one we found was Wool and Cotton. If you can judge a town by their fabric shops, San Angelo is possibly the friendliest and most well supplied town in the world. Judith Lester is the one woman show behind her shop. As soon as we entered she introduced us to everyone in the shop and gave us a tour and a glass of Iced Tea. By the time we left both Emma and I were signed up for knitting classes, and I bought some fine little treasures. Judith has heaps of hand dyed wool and cotton and felt. Really such a great collection. And a pretty good range of fabric. I couldn't do too much looking at the fabric since I don't have any of my cutting supplies here with me....just hand sewing stuff. So I bought a fabulous skein of hand dyed turquoise cotton and a little crochet hook. Emma selected a much more affordable skein of cotton (I assure you it was not her first choice, she first wanted a super soft chenille but chenille is so hard to crochet, so that can be her second project for next time we go to the shop) and I am going to teach her to crochet some little wash clothes. Jennifer Dembowsi was making some before she left for Fort Bragg and I have had them on my to-do list ever since. Well, I sure have the time right now!
