Package from Martha
I had the good sense to get all of my chores done around the house early today, including laundry and got to spend some long overdue time with my good friends Terri and Irene. It is rare that we get to see each other anymore, but it is so wonderful when we do. We always laugh so much, and that is just the best! As usual, we always promise that we are going to get together more often, and as usual, it just doesn't happen. Still, there is nothing like being with dear friends.
When I got home, there was a package from Martha! Oh, what a wonderful package it was! Filled with shawls, silk scarves, love. The scarf that is up on the blog is one that I just had to nuno/laminate felt right away. Ok, so it took a good many hours, but I just couldn't wait a moment to do it. I used a navy blue merino silk blend on the reverse side. It turned out lovely, I think.
Dear husband is quite sick with a bad cold. I think I'm buying dinner this evening.
Oh, I forgot. I wanted to tell you all that on Christmas Eve, I had to make a quick run to the store. While on the drive, there was something in the middle of the road, kind of fluttering around. I stopped the van, go out and walked up to a Screech Owl, who had a mouse in its claws. We just looked at each other. I could have reached out and touch it. I was with it for about 3-4 minutes, and when I turned to go back to my van, off she flew. What a great memory to have. I've always loved owls, and to be that close to one in the wild was just really special.
PS: Did the green one on Sunday, just had to do one more!
