Inspired Morning

I wanted to drop by, and give you an update on the sweater I was unraveling.  I ended up with a dozen good-sized balls of wool yarn, which I began felting today.  They will eventually be dryer balls.  I mostly unraveled the sweater while sitting with Joseph on the couch at night. I'd say my first experiment in unraveling a sweater for yarn seemed like a worthwhile endeavor.  I forgot to weigh the yarn before beginning the felting process.  I suppose once the balls are good and dry, I can accurately weigh them to estimate yardage.

An old friend is visiting this week.  I have some workdays scheduled at a local pottery.  The first blooms of grape hyacinth were spotted today, and the pond is almost filled to the brim. Feelings of  inspiration and gratitude have filled my days. I hope the coming days bring you just what you need to feel inspired.

I noticed my first grape hyacinths yesterday. I always get excited to see new blooms.

I noticed over a foot of compacted winter snow still hanging out in my garden ... waiting for spring .. just around the corner (and down the hill from me).

Sounds like our yard is on the same schedule, Kellie. Mrs. Mac, you definitely have a more serious winter there!

I just wanted to send out a "Ohmygoodnessthankyou"

My wife was kind enough to pick up a shaving kit for me from Brightside. Beautiful mug and the soap inside was yours.

I.. can't... put... into... words... how much my skin loves it. I'm curious if you happen to have any moustache wax, or if you would consider moving in that direction?

Please, don't hesitate to email me.

thank you thank you thank you again.

Hello dear Laurie,
I am belatedly returning here to visit you and spend some time in your cosy world. Thank you.

Am also plotting and planning trying to get to a few events in NC this spring and would love your advice about travel if you have the chance to email me. My email address can be found on the About page at The Bower.

Wishing you mild days and plenty of time to enjoy them,
