Where Have I Been, You Ask?

I'll tell you in a minute but's Lisa. She is my hero and my lifesaver. She has been helping me at the shop for many months and has just taken over the job of filling up the webshop. I love her. She is doing it faster than I ever could have and the photos are beautiful and the descriptions are lovely. Blog love to Saint Lisa.
So I came home from the shop on Wednesday night. (Lou had taken the kids to visit the parents and I was home by myself and was having a very difficult week.) When I drove up to the house I saw this. It's a "heart attack". The the little girls from church had a day camp with a pioneer theme. Maggie and I went to teach them all to spin on low whorl spindles. It was great fun and many of them took right to it. So they came to thank me.
These are the hearts that were in the planters and shrubs and yard. I cried. In a happy thankful way.
So, right now I'm at Abby's house along with Jillian and Denny and I have no photos other than the mess we made of Abby's living room. There are 5 wheels in this picture alone.
So we are eating fab food made by the Mr of the Abby and we are spinning and I'm hoping for some ice cream...
And when I get back there is a box with about 4 pounds of Abby dyed silk that Saint Lisa will be adding to the webstore.

Back to fooling around now.

My Friend Ted

I met Ted in 2006 at Rhinebeck. Just before I bought the shop. I went to Rhinebeck and stayed at the Holididay Inn and on this very Blog I announced there would be spinning/knitting in the courtyard there each night. Ted and his friends showed up and we were fast friends.
So he was passing through during his vacation this past week and stopped by for some fun. He carded some wool he had dyed but didn't like and he brought his knitted lace to show. Of course I didn't take one picture but he left me the scarf from his most recent blog post. Spun and knit from Abby Batts. I've already worn it plenty even though it's August. I have a feeling it will get plenty more use this winter.
Sandy stopped by for some Abby Batt huffing and...
the fabulous Kat was in for some fun.
No pictures of Redford Phyl who also came by, but I love her anyway. I'm having issues with remembering to take pictures. Too caught up in the moment I guess.

Spinning Spider Jenny and Jofran also came by for shopping and some lunch...but this time I got one picture. Cute huh?

I have to go make my list for the week....crazy weeks coming up but I will try to do better with the pictures.
