Well, I couldn't help myself and I must say there will be moocho amounts of woolies heading to my door soon
I can't wait for it to get here and wash it and dry it and put it on the shelves at Simply Fibers for my hooking group....such pretties! Rebecca even has a wool that is made of cashmere and alpaca....oooohhhhh....I'm thinking of some sort of scrumptious hooked pillow to prop my little head on.

Last night we went to the book store and it was so nice to just sit for an hour and peruse books and magazines that caught my eye.
My favorite book that I saw last night was this:

these floppy jersey cotton hydrangeas
another item using the reverse applique and hand painting and stitching
and this beautiful beaded postcard
Go forth and be creative,
