My Wonderful "Heartwarming" Gift.......

Heartwarming gifts are gifts given and received "out of the blue" 
and from the heart.  This is the heartwarming gift I received yesterday. 
A framed "Daybreak" print from an original painting by Marie Mason 
it is 18x24 inches of love - just look at that beautiful dog
My love and thanks to the giver -- I will cherish it always.

Look what came to "Live" at our house...........

I am so excited and thrilled.
For a long time I have wanted to learn how to spin ...
now,  hopefully, I will be able to learn.

My new addition is an Ashford  "Joy"  Spinning Wheel
It is beautiful, folds up and fits in it's own travel bag to go where ever I go.

First two photos of my new beauty, the last photo is of a huge bag of carded wool 
that came with the wheel  for me to practice with -- and the middle photo is publicity photo.

Past Week Happenings......

What a fun few days.

FedEx brought a package, compliments of dear friend Lynn. The darling sheep is a tape measure, three fantastic buttons (she knows my love of different buttons) and a absolutely fantastic necklace that she made for me. WOW, with friends like this, life is good.

Also I spent time using my new N crochet hook from Wolfenwoods --it is a dream to work with -- and I have a good start on a new shawl in the basket weave pattern.
