Status Check!

OK, everyone, I'm ALIVE -- and grading is done.   Have already gone to the Greencastle Fiber Arts Event in Greencastle, IN, and bought some incredible (REALLY incredible) handspun kid mohair (barely spun locks, from the 2nd shearing, which is the best) -- not cheap, but one of a kind and ready-made for luxe cowls and trims.  I also bought some amazing mill-end skeins from an Illinois mill that processes wool, alpaca, mohair, llama, and's gorgeous all natural colors.  I have pictures in my cell phone, but damned if I can figure out how to get them HERE.   So I need to consult a twelve-year-old.   This coming weekend, I will drive to Minnesota to attend the Shepherd's Harvest Festival in Lake Elmo, which is near Stillwater (the place of my birth)(well, the town where my parents lived when I was born -- I was actually born in St Paul).  I will be sure to figure out how to transfer photographs from phone to blog by then.  I also get to talk at long last with my dearest, dearest buddy from way back, Julie Larson, over a long lunch on Friday -- and I get to squeeze at least one niece, and hopefully multiple nieces, in Stillwater (at the Freighthouse) on Friday evening.  So -- toodles!  More soon       svb
