WOO-HOO!!! It's finally time to head to the markets as soon as I get my day in tomorrow. Peggy and I are going to go together and have a great time. Can't wait to see what's new this spring to bring back to the shop. We will be open next Monday (Martin Luther King Day) for anyone that happens to have the day off. Don't forget that our fantastic punchneedle class is next Thursday (January 24) from noon to 3 p.m. I am honored that Teresa Kogut is teaching in our shop and bringing her wonderful patterns with her! Then on January 30th is our needle felting class with Jan Turchi, come make a beautiful felted heart.
I wanted to share my new little cupboard that I bought from Robin (The Parson's Wife) a week or so ago. Finally got it in place and just love it. Peggy gifted me with the beautiful battery candles (which I will have in the shop soon)and I just can't believe how real they look!
This is Dickens after a hard day at the shop. He loves to come home, snuggle up in his nice comfy fed, cuddle with his stuffed dog and just snooze for a couple of hours. He has already grown almost 4 inches! Just love him to pieces - but he IS a puppy! He is getting pretty potty trained, doesn't cry in his crate at night anymore, and is just full of life - just what the doctor ordered. Hope you have a great weekend and I'll post again when we return from Ohio. Until next time...
