No More TGIFs!

Doesn't really matter anymore, does it? I finished my Storm Cloud Shawlette - knit with the beautiful handspun and dyed yarn from Vickie. It had more of a ruffle before I blocked it - but I think I like it this way.

My DH gave me this Creative Spinning book at a family retirement party that my DD had for me on Father's Day (she's a multi-tasker!)
I wonder if the spinning wheel is on its way LOL

And the Nora Ephron book is from a co-worker - it's called I Feel Bad About My Neck and other thoughts on being a woman. It's a hilarious look at women who are growing older.
Nora Ephron wrote Sleepless in Seattle, When Harry Met Sally, You've Got Mail, three of my favorite 'feel good' movies.

I think I need to have a contest in honor of my retirement. As soon as I come up with an idea I'll post it - so stay in touch!
