Over the weekend I got my autumn mystery box from the awesome Alissa at Chestnut Hills Studio! Along with the yarn and stitch markers (bigger pics a little later) the box also contained an interesting writeup on Halloween and harvest history and lore, two packs of pumpkin spice instant coffee (my Mom absconded with one… Continue reading Spooky Mail Time!
This license plate pretty much sums up my long weekend with friends in Wisconsin 🙂 I met up with a bunch of amazing ladies for visits to the sheep and wool festival, a trip to a yarn shop, and assorted other adventures.
