Terri and I share many things in common, but one of our mutual fiber addictions is Jo Sharp DK wool yarn. Wander over to her blog today, read a very moving post about festivals and why they are meaningful AND win some lovely yarn if you choose to enter her contest. (think of a joke. We could all use one!)
Yesterday, Cathy's post surprised me. Many of the designers who contributed to Fiber Gathering are friends. We talked in depth about their projects...but in Cathy's case, I never knew that her crocheted sock pattern came from a desire to make something for her dad. Sometimes we need a blog tour to find out wonderful and private details about what makes our needlework meaningful.
Tomorrow the tour heads to Chrissy's blog--and she's another designer who inspires me!
Meanwhile, the professor went out to our yard yesterday (our backyard, in downtown Bowling Green, 1/2 mile from a university and a 1/2 mile from downtown) and he flushed a wild turkey. A wild turkey hen was hanging out in our yard. I don't know who was more surprised--the turkey or my husband! I'm beginning to think that the turkey is his totem animal or something. Stay tuned for his post on Tuesday, April 7th. My professor will talk about how the photography worked for the book, right down to what kind of cameras he uses. (Yes, I suspect he'll even talk about turkeys.)
Remember, my blog tour CONTEST to win spring time yarn for a project or two is still happening. Please don't hesitate to pop over to that post, leave a comment, and win some yarn! (right now odds are pretty good; with four batches of yarn and only 19 comments...why not leave a comment and give yourself a chance to win!)
Thanks for taking a tour with us!
PS: You can leave a comment here if you'd just like to say something but not be entered in the contest. It's ok. Really. I love to hear from you even if you don't want more yarn. :)
