Welcome back everyone! So far I have had nothing but positive feedback about the new site and that makes me very happy.
It has been a long three months and lots and lots of hard work and burning of the midnight oil by David Hartsock putting all this together for us. He did a fabulous job didn’t he?
The site is still under construction. The store is not available as yet but it will be soon. Please bear with us while we are refining everything and making it feel like home and more importantly, making it what you, the subscribers, want and need! Thank you all so much for your continued interest and your support; it really means the world to me.
I don’t know about you, but the last three months have been a whirlwind of activity for me and my family. I have two grandchildren due to make their debut next month – one on the 19th and one on the 24th and so I have been knitting like a madwoman in addition to everything else! So far I have made two layette sets consisting of sweater, hat, booties and mitts for each baby. I have also knitted at least eight washcloths and a teddy bear hat, a long tail hat and a whole bunch of other hats and several sets of booties. I am currently working on an Heirloom blanket and another crib blanket. Hopefully they will both be finished in time for the babies arrivals!
I have noticed of late that there are a lot more homeless people where I never saw any. A sign of the times for sure. I was purchasing lunch in a local cafe this week and one of those homeless people was behind me. She was white haired and obviously old and clearly had some mental issues. She was hissing and making faces at me. So I finished my purchase and the owner of the place started to wait on this old woman. She had placed bottles of juice, containers of yogurt and several other items on the counter. The owner told the woman “nobody has left any money here for you.” The woman’s face fell. I said I’ve got it and the owner asked if I was sure. I replied “yes, she would do it for me.” Well don’t you know that the woman who a few seconds ago had been hissing at me smiled a toothless smile me and said quite clearly “I would, I really would. I have a kind heart.” I smiled back and said “I know you do.” All day I felt good knowing that the woman would have a breakfast and lunch that day. I bet if the tables were turned she really would do that for me.
So, if you see someone down on their luck, try to help them as much as you can. That’s what we’re all here for isn’t it?
I hope you really enjoy our new site and please be sure to tell all your friends about it as well!
Until next time…
