So, if you do not already know, I will be headed out for Sturgis on Tuesday morning, and will arrive back on the 12th. In case you need me, I will be watching my blog and still posting. Hopefully my connection is better, and I can download some pictures. I am very frustrated with not being able to do so. :( I have a lot of stitching going with me! Before I leave I will mail the 3 Ladies to you, Colleen. I will take a needleroll, my fair and squares, my next 3 Ladies, A hedgehog finish, and one to start, Skeleton Crew, a bent creek mini, etc. I will post my progresses, and hopefully pictures. The reason we are going, is Jon actually won a gig at the Gold Chip you can see his info at www.screamingskunk.com. Everyone have fun, and I will definitely try! Laura

This Selbuvotter book is a great read , read it many times. I went ahead and tried the stranded work - (not one thing I am good at) - it was too small with fingering yarn . So this morning , found some naturespun sport in my stash along with size 3 needles and perfect.
Cuff took about an hour and then the rest flew by - - really need to keep tension loose with the stranded work - but I am in love!

What can I say, this bunny is super cute! Love the finish ! I was so surprised to see the H&E designs project you sent me. It is very cute and now - I need to start it. You are such an enabler but a good one at that!
Love it , love it , love it!
Where do you find the time?????
Very much appreciated!

Hi everyone! I am sorry it has taken so long to write. I just found out a few days ago that I am a grandma! The kids were abit anxious to tell, but even so, I have a wonderful blessing! A grandson - Dante Joseph Mansfield Just so you all know, I have pics, but unfortunately blogger is not liking me right now... I will try once again, and then I will have to figure it out later if not. He is a beautiful boy! Laura
