I finished the teal scarf and had Diane arrange it for me and take a picture. I'll be standing in front of the mirror trying to re-create that look. It's soft and pretty. Speaking of which...
... on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday there was a sidewalk sale in downtown Ashland... including Websters, the yarn store... that sells soft and pretty yarn... and which I happened to visit... twice... and buy things... like yarn. I don't have the balls here to tell you the content. Above, I got five balls of a denim-ish blue and below...
... there are seven skeins of 100% cotton, hand dyed in Chili. The colors are ever so slightly different so I may need to play with that in terms of achieving something cohesive but it'll work.
AND... they had the same black yarn that I'd ordered earlier so I got eleven more balls for another project since I like black so much. I have one in mind that I'll post a picture asap. It's a poncho but not a kid-like ponch. It's delicate, sophisticated, and elegant.
Yarn shopping happened between my coffee with Anna above and dinner with Susan below. What a gift it is to meet with all these creative women and enjoy such fabulous conversations.
Susan and I are a bit washed out. We had to use the flash because I forget until it was too dark for the soft candelight image.
Elaine picked me up on Saturday and took me back to her house for a tour of her new - gorgeous - cutting table and sewing studio. Having a space of our own where we can spread out and be creative is SO SO SO important. I hope you have a space.
Elaine's husband drove me back to my car in this pretty car... which turned out to be a Jaguar. He did offer to let me drive but I declined to enjoy the ride instead. Such a lovely color.
Today, I'm driving up the coast of Oregon to a B & B in Astoria where I'm staying for two days. I have this image of me meandering along the beach, perhaps painting on some of my canvas scraps with a rock or a stick and throwing a little sand in here and there. Maybe. Or maybe I'll just curl up on the porch and read a book. Either will be good. More later.
Talk soon - Myrna
