Saturday report

This week started with the horrible news that our Sunflower Kara, who worked here a couple of years ago, was in a terrible car accident last weekend and is in critical condition in an Albuquerque hospital.  I am putting this out to you because I believe that we can all send our love and prayers to help her, wherever this journey may take her.

Moving on to happier things...I am almost finished with the Great Adirondack shawl.  I will show you a picture, taken earlier in the week.  It was a gloomy day and I don't think the colors really show; it is very bright and cheery in person.  I will get a better picture taken and posted when it's finished, fringed, and blocked.  Img_0356

Knitting this has been so much fun!  I am going to have separation anxiety when I finish it...the same way I feel when I finish a book that I wish would never end. 

Great news:  for those of you who knew Sheila and Ruth, the founders and former owners of the Gypsy 360 Cafe next door...well...ta da...they're BACK!  They've opened a new restaurant in the Overland Sheepskin complex called Maverick County Cafe.  At this time, they're open Tues-Sat from 11:00-9:00 and Sundays are open for brunch from 9:00 a.m.-2:30 p.m.  As always, the food is fantastic.  Tell 'em we sent you if you get there!    --Martie

I'm so sorry about your former employee; my thoughts and prayers are with her.
I love the way you've revamped your site and it's obvious the handspun is one of a kind, it's out of this world, beautiful! Keep on spinnin' ladies.
