Oh Dear Sweet Friends,I haven't dropped off the face of the Earth, just dropped into a whole new realm of Life ~ Grandmotherhood, is that even a word?, or for me it would be Mimmiehood. That's a new word created by moi. Yes, dainty little Miss Johanna Grace came into our lives on May 14th. Just as precious as a little girl can be, and so is her Mother my daughter Lauren. I have been busy keeping up with her, crocheting, and creating in down time. Even had a chance to visit a couple Antique Stores here in Shelton WA. So there are some New goodies in the Boutique. And a new favorite Yarn Shop, which just happens to be right on my path to visit with Johanna. Fancy Image Yarns, www.fancyimageyarns.com, is a shop full of hand dyed Merino's and Mohair's. Myra's eye for color is just outstanding with yummy summer, and rich fall hues. This shop is a must have for the Fiber Artist.
Today we took Johanna to the Olympia Farmer's Market. I just Love her New Copli Stroller! Her Blanket here was made by Melissa Danner of 'My Favorite Things', melissadanner.typepad.comThank~You Melissa!!
I Hope You ALL are Enjoying a Wonderful Holiday Week~end!! Huggs, Nancy www.coeurdalenegifts.com
