What I like about these photos is they tell so much about what has been happening. This photo is of the new grand piano a sweet woman named Ruth Bohannon gave to the church. Ruth and Mr. Honey and my nephew Mike and his family were closer to Ruth than I was though we were friends. Ruth passed away shortly after purchasing the piano and it was dedicated at church this morning.
The prayer shawl is an order and it’s the first time someone ordered it in this color called Edwardian. I wanted to photograph it so I can offer it in its own listing. I’ve had a couple more prayer shawls ordered, made and sent. It is a kind of funny thing. I had someone tell me they thought I was selling prayer shawls because people needed some hope. That’s both comforting and sad.
The photo of the little guy. That’s Mr. Honey and we celebrated his birthday. His birthday was on date night and I offered to take him out another night but he wanted to celebrate on his day and we went to dinner and enough to fill us for a while and brought home left overs. I don’t know much about that little boy but I love the grown man to pieces. I am always happy to see him.
This group of women are the next officers for the Chicago Northwestern District of the United Methodist Women with the Conference president, Dottie, swearing them into office. I had the pleasure of going there and also attending a women’s day celebration at another church.
A group of us also went to Wool and Company in St. Charles. A sweet store with some really friendly people. We stayed there for maybe four hours and had a load of fun. I was really good and walked out spending under $50. I purchased some Plymouth and some James C. Brett. And yarn isn’t the only thing I picked up. Besides meeting some more women who were enjoyable, they had a hat sample that fascinated me and the pattern was free and I found it and started to make it and I also saw a sample with Noro and another yarn. It was a stockinette/reverse stockinette infinity scarf and it was really lovely. It gave me an idea of what to make with that cache of Noro yarn I have. You know the yarn I purchased here in 2010. I can’t believe it was just five years ago. I have yarns that are older than that and still have no idea what to do with.
Because of the orders, I haven’t had the chance to work on too much more but I am happy I have the orders. That’s what the business is about. We will be taking a trip up to Wisconsin to check out another LYS – is it local if it’s in another state?
