This is a rare giveaway.
Actually, the first ever for my El Grande Cowl.

I wish you the best of luck!

Fringe coupon code
offered here.
Good through Friday, November 25th.

A lovely little feature (and a bonus)...


Happy Thursday, dear hearts!
I hope your day is filled with smiles.

I was asked to do an interview
for a very sweet person, Sedie.
She has a beautiful blog
and today
my interview is the featured post.

I hope you'll have a moment to visit.
You can read the interview for Yarn Obsession here.

There's an extra special something at the end of the interview.
A coupon code to be used in my shop
on anything.
It's a very rare and limited offer.
The coupon code will be active until midnight PST on November 25th.
So, darling dears,
it's the perfect time to treat yourself
or make a dent in your holiday gift list.
Giving a gift of Fringe is like
giving someone you love a warm hug.

Why the coupon code,
you may ask?
Because I love you.


stay tuned for another exciting
(but different)
special offer.
All will be revealed tomorrow morning.


Coming to Fringe tomorrow.
Front Porch Scarf in pine.

I have completely fallen back in love with pine green!
Plan on seeing the results of my new-old love
sprinkled here and there in my shop...


Thank you for spending time with me, dear ones.
Much love..


On the Grasshopper and the Cricket
John Keats (1795-1821)
The poetry of earth is never dead:
When all the birds are faint with the hot sun,
And hide in cooling trees, a voice will run
From hedge to hedge about the new-mown mead;
That is the Grasshopper’s—he takes the lead
In summer luxury,—he has never done
With his delights; for when tired out with fun
He rests at ease beneath some pleasant weed.
The poetry of earth is ceasing never:
On a lone winter evening, when the frost
Has wrought a silence, from the stove there shrills
The Cricket’s song, in warmth increasing ever,
And seems to one in drowsiness half lost,
The Grasshopper’s among some grassy hills.
December 30, 1816.

You may not know that I take a 4 mile walk,
usually during the lunch hour,
usually with Ron,
usually 5 days a week.

Yesterday was particularly beautiful.
The sky so crystal clear blue.
The hills green and sprinkled with wildflowers.
The hawks soaring magnificently.
We paused here and there so that I
could capture the day with my phone camera.
I wanted to share the feeling of the day
with you, dear hearts.

By the way,
I have a couple of exciting blog features
coming up in the next couple of days.
Two lovely, beautiful ladies
will soon feature a tidbit or two
{of the Fringe variety}
on their gorgeous blogs.

Stay tuned.
the festivities begin!

Thank you for visiting,
thank you for being you...

Much love!
