I want to go back soon…I think this is a permanent thing at the Seattle Center.

Last weekend held a visit with a dear old college friend from Chicago. We hadn't seen each other for thirteen years, but it felt just like yesterday. We spent the day walking all over downtown Seattle and then some, including the Chihuly Garden and Glass exhibit. The whole thing is... Continue reading

She is SO great. If she were an apron, & I wore her in the kitchen, we could be twins, I look a lot like her when making dinner…ask the boys.

She just makes me Grin. Someone once told me that I might have to go all the way to the other side before I could find the balance in-between. & GORgeous rose photo.

It really is swell, I was sorry to be done. & I think it's good for lots of body types. I'm pretty busty, but it looks fine enough.
Ha-Exactly!
Ditto, what she said.

Thanks, deanna, and thanks for the reminder to put the link to the pattern in!
This reminds me of the "choose your own adventure" books the kids were looking at today. Everyone will go through the book in the same direction, but what comes next in the path is up to the reader.

I'm thinking this little sprinkling of stars can be a touchstone . . . a reminder of self and centering. Wearing it to school today kept me warm and snug. And there were a few moments that a twist of the wrist was helpful in remembering to try to stay... Continue reading

Yes, the blue collar and the "blah blah", I know them well! & yes, a few good people are all I need, too.

Yes, I think a few stars at the wrist will be just the ticket! I will email you soon about London…they did get soccer tickets for the 20th.

It's thicker yarn than usual & squashy soft, knit on size 8's & going round and round makes it speed along, too.

Almost finished with the Portland Pullover from the latest issue of Taproot magazine. An easy-peasy pattern. It's only taken two of weeks of evenings to get this far. A couple of alterations in length and ribbing were made (I'm tall, and too wide to want garter stitch stripes highlighting my... Continue reading

Gosh, thanks, Tracey. I think reading through my childhood, and then theater, taught me a lot of other ways to communicate. I do love working with words.

More thanks, Nancy. I'm struck by how many of us are connected in these feelings about words.
Toggle Commented Jan 30, 2016 on round & round she goes at handstories
Wow, that's lovely & transporting, too.

Thanks, Nancy, I hope you're finding some peace this weekend.
