Just before Thanksgiving I discovered that there was a new yarn and quilt shop in the area. A mom at school told me about it because she knows yarn is my Thing. =) Abigail and I stopped in one day after school, started chatting with the owner about my projects, and I walked out with a job.
LoL LoL LoL!!!
The store is called Wexford Dry Goods and it is the Loveliest place to work!
(Hi there, Abigail!)
(that scarf on top is my own design!)
This book was one of the first things I saw when I walked into the store. I knew IMMEDIATELY that there was a Kindred Spirit here.
GIFTS and PRETTY THINGS
So what exactly do I do at WDG besides drool over beautiful fabric and pet pretty yarn?!
I teach classes ... mostly crochet with a bit of knitting and quilting. =)
I've always wanted a little job like this!! It fits me to a T. =)
So Dear Carolyn, the Other Erin, Sherri, and Marianne ... thank you from the bottom of my heart for letting me be a part of your shop family.
I changed the background, clipart, and text to something Dotty, Colorful, and Happy.
Do you like it?!?!
This fall I got a new phone (the smarty-pants variety) and it was chock-full of pictures. I successfully downloaded them all to the desktop and now I Can Not Find them!!! Hopefully, Mr. K can locate them tonight.
I was able to rescue this picture of my Work Room. =)
(yes, I tidied it up for the picture ... because I know you will ask)
Outside my window ...it is sunny but shivery cold. I should not complain as it is actually warmer then yesterday ... 15 degrees instead of 7 degrees. LoL =)
I am thinking ...I want to blog LOTS MORE in 2013. Last year was pretty skimpy here @ DGD and I am really sorry about that! (eta. There are only 5 posts in 2012 ... that's pretty pathetic. =( )
I am thankful ... for all the lovely people who became followers of DGD last year even with the lack of blogging. XOXOX
In the kitchen ... the dishwasher just finished running and I need to unload it. Why is it that I so dislike that job?!
I am wearing ...a staple work outfit. Cardigan with t-shirt and a Lacy Baktus on the top. Skirt with tights on the bottom. Would I be a total dork if I wore TWO pairs of tights one on top of the other so that I can stay warm?!?
I am creating ...a crocheted entrelac blanket for Abigail's 9th birthday (lots of hooky time yet as it is not 'til April) out of Stylecraft Special DK. It is in Lucy colors + a "few" more that are coming from Deramores.
I am wondering ...what to make for supper??? I made Zucchini Corn Chowder last week. It was so YUMMY that I want to make it again. =) Thank you, Meg, for sharing the recipe with me!!
I am reading ...through the Bible with Mr. K and Abigail. One chapter every night (when we remember =) ).
I am hoping ... that Abigail's presentation on the Netherlands goes well. She made a poster and everything!
I am looking forward to ...teaching the second session of Beginning Crochet today at Wexford Dry Goods. I will tell you more about my new job sometime soon. =)
I am hearing ... the hum of the furnance and not much else. It is So Quiet when I am home alone.
Around the house ...lots and lots of baskets of yarn. It is hard to keep them contained to the Work Room. =)
One of my favorite things ...Ravelry. I've been tooling around it quite a bit lately and finding so much inspiration.
