It is a very good thing that I generally enjoy very good health, because when I am sick, I crumble, grumble, moan and complain. With the help of several doses of over-the-counter remedies, I made it through the day. Unlike our little friend Clara from Edward Gorey's Ghastleycrumb Tinies, I am not wasting away.
Despite my extreme pain and suffering (see what I mean?) I had a busy, enjoyable weekend. Saturday was a family get-together. I took my-favorite-little-boy-in-the-world who is exactly 25 months old. He hit it off in a big way with another little boy who was at the party. The boys share great-great-grandparents. That makes them third cousins. Imagine that! Watching the two boys play together was really entertaining.
On Sunday, I went to the Hemlock Fiber Festival. Again, I was honored to have the company of my little friend. The weather was perfect and I picked up a few nice things. I bought a product called Glitz. That is mylar fiber which is spun along with your wool to add a little sparkle. I was inspired by my friend Phyllis who made a version of La La's Simple Shawl using handspup with just a subtle little glimmer.
