Dorothy WINS and so do I


Dorothy won my comment contest. http://mommy-knitter.blogspot.com/
Head over to her blog to see some wonderful wonderful knitting. Dorothy you have to send me your snail mail so I can send you the prize!

I won big today too! Al and I visited Donna Boucher of Quiet Life today. Yes, yes this is the pretend friend Donna who I met at the Cub game a month ago. I couldnt' stay away. She is so amazing. Katie, her daughter is just a doll. Al wanted a road trip and Donna obliged.

She made us a delicious good old layered salad...the incredible one with the mayo and sugar and parmesan dressing. We went on a yarn crawl as that was my agenda...
The Sow's Ear is a must see shop in Verona Wisconsin. If you want a small charming shop with a coffee bar inside, you've got to go here.

Katie is a near professional yarn winder. She will happily crank away until your hank is a lovely perfect cylinder. Katie and Donna, what fun we had. Funny thing is, Donna will be in my neck of the woods tomorrow. DONNA the door is always open for you!

TOmorrow I'll post about my swap with Channon. She sent me a wonderful wonderful swap box.

Some days hold so much joy.....today was one of them (sorry no images. Blogger wont post them tonight for some reason.....)

Congratulations Dorothy! So happy to hear about your fun yarn crawl. It is rare to find a shop that will wind yarn, and so perfectly. I love those little round cylinders, especially when they pull from the center!

I've been on vacation and just found out! Thank, Kathy!

There. I finally have a second to stop by and see your post since you left! Super picture of Katie.

I was honored and delighted that you came to visit! I will come to your porch some day....soon!

You bring such love and joy with you everywhere you go. Thank you for being my friend.
