Some days i wish i lived closer to Merritt... 20 minutes is nice on a warm spring day and i don't have much to do... but in the winter and when i have a million things to do, a five minute drive would be nice... Larry had a mole on his face that was driving him nuts, Dr had tried to freeze it off 3 times, so at 6:30 this morning we had to meet Dr at Hospital..cut it out this time... so poor sheep didn't get feed early and dogs were left in their kennels till we got home...Went to Kamloops and got more gifts... had a real problem finding something for my Mom...finally had to go to Sears Catalogue to get anything close to what i wanted, and it still wasn't what i wanted...it will be delivered to her by the 18th of Dec... so i won't have to worry about wrapping it... Oldest son and his wife are off to the coast on the 20th, so they will take the gifts down...I lucked out years ago and found a gift for 90 year old step grandmother... i buy her novels...about 5 of them, she loves to read and never gets out and still has all her marbles so it is a good gift. I buy for my niece's kids, she is a single parent so i always get them something small just so they have something to open. I probably buy more gifts for friends, couple of neighbours and i have exchanged gifts for years.. and that is always a challenge..this year all our close friends are getting a FROZEN home grown chicken...nice little pullet about 4 to 5 pounds...


Darn it any way.... tried to get picture of Larry and his peg leg down here, but it didn't work... anyway this is the 'i walk free' that Larry uses out in the shop... i also have a couple of pictures of my shawl... so were they show up is beyond me... Shawl is made out of handspun silk, original weight was 100 grams and i only used about half of it...i will take it to the next guild meeting and take a picture on someone so you can see the size, i should have made it larger, just add another set of rows.... take care

Sheila.......Your shawl is magnificient! Looks as delicate as a spider's web.
Glad you added a pic of Larry's "peg-leg"....I just couldn't seem to figure out what it would look like.
We are getting a ton of rain, here on the coast, so I suppose that means snow for you.
Take care.......
