Finally completed Tilia – was up until about 5 am finishing it. When I get that close on a Saturday night, what’s a knitter to do? Missed church this a.m. though. Not good.

My colleague, Ann, is covering the only (uncontested) case that I have this afternoon. I’ve got a lot of paperwork, hence I am at the desk, at the computer, and taking a break to write this blog.

And this time, it will be in a size I don’t have to refigure:) (no pun intended).This book can be purchased at … Continue reading Before I get back to work….

I just love to hear that and it makes me laugh, because honey, when I look in that mirror first thing in the morning, I sure as hell don’t see a 30-year-old! I like being 52.
