snuggle schedule

It’s been chilly and both cats want to snuggle. Buddy remembered his manners and at least looked at my schedule before he snuggled in yesterday afternoon.

Wishing all a wonderful, safe, and happy Memorial Day weekend and a ! חג שבועות שמח ושבת שלום

spinning samples and swatches

I’ve been busy working up handspun samples for Happy Fuzzy Yarn to display in the booth at the summer trade show of The National Needle Arts next week.
