• Clean-up time

    This weekend has been devoted to cleaning up after a few weeks of teaching/travel.  Unpacking and setting things into piles was about as far as I got…I still need to organize samples into the various classes and put them away.  I can only take so much of that, so I took a break to sew together the Duxbury Point Pullover that I have been knitting for Bill.  I left it blocking before leaving for Madrona, but now it is all finished!  I plan to get photos of it this afternoon if I can pin down Bill or William to model it for me.

    I also am cleaning up the blog.  I have been getting about 25-30 spam comments every day, and my phone is always pinging to tell me about it.  A few months ago I had a “re-direct worm” which caused all sorts of havoc.  I know folks are reading the blog, because I see the stats – but commenting isn’t popular, so I have removed the comment option from the posts.  You can always reach me by e-mail, and I am always happy to interact with you.  The spammers…not so much.  So, bye-bye spam!

     

    In really wonderful news, I just heard that a student I met at Stitches West just had her baby!  Welcome to the world, Amelia Rose.  You have chosen your mother and grandma wisely, and I have high hopes for your future.

    I just heard that Jennifer (on the left) gave birth to a healthy baby girl, Amelia Rose.  That is her proud gramma, Debra, on the right.  I loved meeting this mother/daughter team at Stitches West, and wish them and Amelia all happiness!
