Alas, Poor Stephanie

Feel free to listen Here!

And you know we love you Stephanie! Why else would I get to your book signing 4 hours early?! 

And her new book, The Amazing Thing About the Way It Goes is a very interesting read and well worth checking out!
Here’s a link to the Shear Madness show. Check it out! Really interesting!!
Morro Fleece Works is a truly reliable place to send your fleece for processing! Several of my friends have used her services and are full of accolades for what she sends back to them.
I’m very excited to get my 2 kilos of fleece from Stansborough Farm in New Zealand! I’ll post pictures when it arrives!!
I hope you’ll check out Fiber Trek podcast! This videocast is so interesting and Sarah is very knowledgeable and informative!!
Most of you are here because of the Knitmore Girls podcast so I’m sure you are already familiar with Jasmine and Gigi.
And the Twinset Designs Podcast is truly worth tuning in to. But be aware that Jan and Ellen will soon become like old friends. : )
The Columbia Gorge Fiber Festival is coming up this weekend, April 18-20, 2014. I will be there Saturday, the 19th. If you’re in the area, come by and say “hi”! I’ll be spinning with my spinning group on my new Hansen Mini Spinner.
For those of you who were holding your breath waiting for the results of Rick’s playoff tennis match…His team did not win on Saturday, therefore, Rick did not get to play on Sunday. Boo!
For your sipping pleasure, here is the recipe for Purple Haze:
2 oz. Vodka 
3/4 oz. Lemon/Lime juice (equal parts) 
1 oz. Simple Syrup 
1 oz. Blackberry Puree 
dash of sparkling water/soda water
And Theo Chocolate is a must try! I especially love the Salted Almond Dark Chocolate!!
Please join our Weave-Along! Check out the thread in this group for all the details! The Prize of Dye Your Own Silk Scarf Kit graciously provided byMachine Knitting To Dye For
My Monsoon shawl is coming along nicely. Just have the edging to finish.

And here’s my sad plying job with my Edgewood Garden Studios alpaca silk. But I’ll fix it somehow! 

And my lovely Market Jacket just waiting for the buttons!

I’ve been happily plugging away at my rug hooking with the goal of finishing the center ‘bouquet’ by the end of April. 

My Hansen Mini Spinner arrived this week!! I simply love it! Check out their website if you haven’t already!
Thanks for tuning in! We’re so happy to have you with us!
