Archive - Winter Gift

From the archives – A Winter Gift for Ladies

I think I need to start an archive with all the old patterns and pattern books and needlework magazines I have.  They range in age from 80 to over 100 years old.  Many are from my mother, grandmother and great grandmother but I also have some magazines that have been gifted to me over the years.

Lang Jawoll Color Fingering Weight yarn

Despite the spelling, I absolutely LOVE this yarn. It is fun and fresh.

windstorm Garbage

Windstorm killed my debit machine

Wow, I would never have believed it but the windstorm this past week wreaked havoc on my debit/credit machine.  Yes it was a brutal day.  We had wind and snow and driving was like a slalom course because it was also garbage and recycle day.  The wind blew the garbage and recycle all over the roads.
