With many Thanks...

by Kathleen

Thanks for my parents who have always loved and supported me. (My Mom saved canned goods for years so I wouldn't starve in a garret. Sure she may claim now that she was joking, but I think she really did it.)

Thanks for my siblings who I bossed about mercilessly in my know-it-all oldest child manner, but somehow managed to love me anyway. (Of course... I do know it all so maybe that's why.)

Thanks for my DH. A good man who makes me happy. Enough said.

Thanks for the roof over my head, the yarn and fabric in my stash, the sweet kitties who are at home right now laying a fine mist of fur on the aforementioned stash, dear friends, and the yummy food with the welcoming in-laws tomorrow.

Life is feeling good right now. Not perfect (whatever that would be), but truly, deeply good. And for that... I'm thankful.

Wishing you all a happy, healthy, love filled Thanksgiving with whoever and whatever you are thankful for.

Welcome Home

by Caroline

If a picture says a thousand words then I certainly don't have to say any more:

Welcome home Jonathan and thank you.

Happy Blogiversary to Us!

One year (and a couple of weeks) ago my fellow fiber enthusiast sister Caroline posted the first entry to this our shared creation.
We didn't know how it would go or how well we'd do with it... we're still not sure about that. But since that momentous occasion we have manged to average a post a week! Not that we've posted every week... or even every month... but if you average it out...
We've gone to Fiber Festivals, learned to spin, taught others to spin, taught others to knit, designed and constructed huge period Shakespearean shows...
It's been a busy year.

Now many on the blogosphere have contest and give out prizes on their blogiversary. Uhm... we'll get back to you on that...

In the meantime, Happy Blogiversary Caroline!!! (who is apparently celebrating it by going to Disneyworld this week).
Happy Blogiversary to me!!! (who is celebrating it by... making spaghetti last night. Hey wait a minute...)

Remembrance Day

(The firing of the cannon across the street, followed by taps)

On the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month...

With gratitude and respect to all veterans every where...

To my dad (in for 20 years, a Retired Navy pilot)

and my Nephew (Army Reserve, back in the states as of this week) (with his team, second from left)

Thank you.
