This is for our friend, Lois Ann in Italy!

We had our Aussome fiber group meeting today at one of our members homes (Carol T.). Carol prepared a great lunch!! She's sending us the recipe for the roasted leek potato soup!! It was SO good! After our show and tell, a little talking and dessert we headed off to Birmingham to see Mary's fiber work at the Our Town exhibit. Mary was juried into this show so we were pretty excited for her! The art work was great but of course we thought Mary's work was just outstanding and looked so wonderful on exhibit.

So for our friend, Lois Ann, who moved to Italy last year we send this greeting!! We miss you but you were in our thoughts today for sure!!!

I'm also posting some knitting projects I finished this week...I didn't get my beads purchased until Wed. to put on my latest Inspired by the Masters piece (Frankenthalener) so I cleaned out my beading cabinet instead and knitted. Good time to start some knitting projects and finish some others!

The first is a beanie hat I made in one didn't take any time at all. Very simple will make a nice hat for Amber's dolls or if my head shrinks and I decide to wear a beanie.......
The 2nd one is a lace scarf I finished. It's smaller then others I've made but it was supposed to have a flower (knitted) attached. I gave the yarn away at one of the quilt guild auctions this past week so I'm going to add beading on the edges to make it appear longer. The picture shows the piece folded so it's a little larger then what you see here!
The last one is a twisted knitted scarf from the 1st Threfold journal by Linda and Laura Kemshall & Catherine Nicholls. I love these journals as well as their new Design Matters TV they have on the web. I've made 3 of these scarfs and they are fun to wear.

So Sunday will be a trip to the Farmers Market to get some more Granola which I love from the Bake Shop and Coffee House in Owosso. Their Maple Cherry is the best..wish they had a web site but you can order by phoning them (989-729-2253). Hope to get lots of the beading done on my Frankenthaler while watching our Lions!!
