How are you this morning? I am doing well. First of all, thank you so much for the Birthday wishes. I had a fine day (despite having two conference calls in the morning) and I bugged out of work early and spent the afternoon doing fun things (knitting and stitching). All I wanted for dinner was pizza, so I got a spinach/mushroom/roasted red pepper pizza. Fletch ordered Chinese. And Fletch fetched while I sat and had a glass of wine. Lovely.
My friend Leslie sent a package filled with birthday gifts and a card. Also a set of cordial glasses. These are glasses that her Mom (my second Mom) used and they are gorgeous:
I love the Dogwood blossoms on them (and the blossoms are 3 dimensional!). I haven't used them yet, but you can bet I'll be enjoying an after dinner sip in one of these! It just means so much to me to have something from Mom.
Saturday dawned another gorgeous day (our weather over the last few days has been what I would call perfect!) and I drove up to Dee's and from there we went to the NJ Sheep & Wool Festival. YAY!! An in-person event full of sheep and yarn. There were not as many vendors as in the past and not as many sheep either. I would guess that a scant half of people we saw had masks on. Let's look at some of the cute animals:
My what big horns you have! The front guy must have been Baa-ing for a long time because he sounded very hoarse!
A skein I couldn't resist - the colors just called out to me. The colourway is "Hiking Trail" and I thought that it would knit up into gorgeous man socks.
And lastly some mini skeins that I will use in a cowl I'm planning to make for Bonnie. I have another set that will blend with these very nicely (and Bonnie loves purples and pinks).
The cowl I plan to make is Land of Sweets by Helen Stewart.
