T-Day Weekend & Why I'm Glad It's Over!

Turkey Day was a lovely family-filled day at a restaurant, but I told you all that. Friday was a laughter-filled drive to Northern Virginia - my Big Sis and I had a blast! We stopped at G Street Fabrics and bought a bundle of fabrics at 25% off!

Then...
 
Saturday and Sunday were spent in the confines of this 10x10 foot space...many new friends and customers entered my life those two days...it's was fun, but completely exhausting, as shows always are.

So when it was almost over (on Saturday night), Big Sis dropped me at Knit Happens in Old Town Alexandria, where I picked up...Debbie Bliss' new book Donegal Tweed. I'm a tweed nut. And I just love Inishowen...the lace scarf in Aran weight. There are a couple of sweaters in here, too, but as I've never knit a sweater, don't hold your breath!

And then...because I loved the color...a single skein of Rowan Kidsilk Haze in Violet.

Nope. I don't know what it's going to be. It'll tell me. Eventually.

This was my reward for pushing myself to do three shows in a month.

Oh. And then...Big Sis and I went to La Madelaine's. My favorite French cafeteria.
Heaven.On.Earth.

Sweaters aren't difficult - if you can handle lace, you can handle a sweater. Start with a simple pattern, maybe a top down raglan and next thing you know, you'll be a Sweater Magician as well as a Lace Magician.. {{{HUGS}}}

Love my new Christmas Kitties bag. Getting lots of complements on it too! So glad you made it to the Lee Rec. Center Show. PS: Can't quite figure out this blogging; how do you insert a signature picture/graphic like everyone else does??

Yum, I love La Madelaines. I only recently discovered them on a trip to NoVA for work this summer. Glad that you got to stop by Knit Happens too. Two treats in one day! I wondered if they were still around since the owner recently moved to England.

Namaste

I honor the place in you,

which is of love, truth, light, and peace.

When you are centered in that place in you,

and I am centered in that place in me,

we are one.
