Friends and Fibre

Have you had your all-bran today? No, no not that type of fibre the one you wear, touch, stitch and even knit. Last week I was lucky enough to have my friend Dawn visit, a week of talking, creating, eating and even a little exercise followed.
We walked to the top of “my” rock which looks over town and took a few photos as Archer ran around beside us.
We ate picky platters of cheese, olives, cucumber and crackers, and ate only as we felt hungry, with very odd meal times.
We created, Dawnie made beautiful jewellery – I wish I took pictures – and my muse decided to knit. Three scarves, this one embellished with sari silk, ribbon and beads, another almost done.
The fur and purr babies delighted in Dawn’s attention and Charles, dear boy, even slept with our friend, loving her as I do.
This week it is back to work I go, and by the end of the week I will have found the rhythm, for now I am clinging to these sunshine filled play days.

Those are the kind of visits that refresh you and get your creative juices flowing. I love the scarf!!! It looks so light and airy and the colors remind me of sherbet!

Oh, Julie! What a divine day! It's hard for me to wrap my brain around the idea that as I'm enjoying the most beautiful spring ever, you are gearing up for fall!

Charles is wonderful -- so reminds me of Stimpy and so very beautiful. He looks divinely happy!

Hi Julie,

So glad you had a fabulous time with Dawnie and a lovely creative holiday! Only 10 weeks 'til the next one :) xo

PS Love the scarf! It's the perfect weather to get knitting needles out... I might just have to do that myself - thanks for the inspiration!
