First I mentioned my books and now.....

Yesterday I talked about books, books everywhere well today is yarn, yarn everywhere!! Last night I went to knitting and sure enough Sara at The Cottage Yarn was having a sale! Guess who walked away with some beautiful royal blue Juniper Moon Farm yarn-that is right it would be me!!


Well as you see how could anyone resist this beautiful blue yarn called Clear Skies!! It is gorgeous! I will be making a cowl for myself with it. It is so soft and I love the fact that the owner of Juniper Moon Farm had come to The Cottage Yarn, visited with us and is a woman owned company! That makes it all right that I bought this yarn right? I am supporting a woman owned company. I know, I know I'm pathetic-LOL!!!

There is just something about colors and textures of yarn that just make me want to buy, buy, buy!! I was listening to some of the ladies last night about their yarn stashes (yes that is what they are called) and I am one of the few that doesn't have a whole room in their house designated for yarn and only yarn! They were telling me they have bags, plastic storage containers, closets, and shelves all full of various yarns in various textures and shades. So I guess that my hubby should be really happy that I don't go crazy and I usually give the things I make away as gifts (except for the last 3 purchased-I am making the cowls for myself). So my thought is I'm saving him money because I'm making theses gifts, which would cost a ton more than what I am spending on the yarn for the gift. Well atleast it sounds good-LOL!!!

Enjoy your day everyone!

That's so funny that you have stashes of yarn. I have stashes of beads and my mother has stashes of fabric. I guess every crafter has a stash of some kind! That color of blue is beautiful too!

Stashes! Even when some things remain in the stash for a long time, just looking at them can make you happy and appreciative of their beauty.

What a wonderful shade of blue!

I am one of those crazy ladies thst has a whole section of my basement devoted to yarn and it is desperate need of organizing. I've got it in containers and tote bags. It really is scary. My books are no better. Lol. That beautiful yarn likely would have come home with me too.

I love blue, too. And I'd love to see what you make with this.


Ring of Kerry, Ireland
My husband, John and I went to Ireland for our 25th Wedding Anniversary in 2004. We had an awesome trip and we will never forget it. We actually got to visit our friends who live in Northern Ireland. We spent 3 wonderful days with them! The picture above was taken when we visited The Ring of Kerry. The beauty of Ireland is just spectacular! If you ever get a chance visit there.
Megan is my oldest daughter. She and Ken were married on April 12, 2008. It was a wonderful ceremony and reception!
