Monday Fun Day

Allisa (Headknits.com) arranged for us to meet in real time last night. She had driven a long long long way from Colombus, Ohio to Lake Geneva for a conference she is attending. She taught me many things about Free Trade. I missed,somewhere, along the blog way, that she is the Executive Director of Global Gifts. (What’s going on with this hair of mine? It’s called it is growing out and it is a pain. Note to self, Pixie cuts take over a year to grow out,) Thanks Allisa, for the effort and the wonderful time shared. I’m sure you were exhausted but it didn’t’ show. Allisa did say that Manos De Uroguay is free trade yarn if you are interested in putting your money towards the Free Trade movement. I love their yarns. Next Up, my WIP:

I decided I have to make a Susan b. Anderson leaf scarf again. It is such an easy pattern. I have bulky yarn from Lorna’s Laces’s Chicago shop( that is no longer in Chicago …but neither are we so…..) I’m loving it. 14 Rows to follow and boom, another leaf joins the scarf.

I’m still trying to compensate (over compensate) for my D in art. So here’s our snow dog, Piranha. (That’s a line from a favorite movie, Robin Williams starred in: The Birdcage)

I am so thankful, that Zach is with great friends and loving living in Mexico. The little guy is a good friend’s baby. He had a birthday and baptism weekend. 48 hours of celebration. I laughed and said , Zach, send me a photo of you holding the baby. Tell them you know how. He laughed and said, “I can hold the baby. Are you kidding ? The kid is passed all around the room.” So this made my heart sing. Aren’t they cute. Pale, pale ZACH, AND adorable not pale baby with gloriously soft looking black hair!!!

Finally, I think I need to updating the ABOUT section of this blog. Allisa thought the barn was mine. I’m so sorry if I gave that impression. The barn where I LOVE to VOLUNTEER is called …….

S.M.I.L.E.S in Darien, Wisconsin. IF you find them on Facebook, look at the Magic in Motion Video . It is so sweet. Our Stable is not for profit.

You know I’m wishing we could all meet someday. I hope you get some good knit, crochet, card making, or stitch work in today.

  1. Zach is a handsome young man. What a good baby too that isn’t afraid of ppl. I’m trying to grow out my bangs and I’ve cut my hair shorter for new year.

  3. I’m happy for you to get to meet a fellow blogger. To be honest, most NON-bloggers don’t understand the us and our enjoyment of blogging. Your son looks very happy with that little one.. he might get the bug to get married and have one of those little darlings. ((hugs)), Teresa 🙂

  4. I’m so glad you got to meet another blog friend. Zach looks like he’s having a wonderful time holding that baby. Our Alex is the same with children. He’s like the Pied Piper. I think your hair looks great. We are our own worst critics aren’t we? Cool looking snow dog!
    Blessings, Betsy

  5. I love that movie too. I just saw the original french version and while it was funny, it was not as hilarious as the Robin Williams/Nathan Lane film. I loved Hank Azaria as the house boy. Wouldn’t it be fun to have a house boy?
