Amazing Threads: Shibui Reveal 8/3; Arne & Carlos Knitted Dolls; The Shop is Abuzz!
Life at the shop is busy! All year around but especially in July, August & September because UPS, FedEx and USPS are delivering lots of boxes each week.
Boxes of Yarn always make me smile.

FYI - It's time for my family to downsize to a smaller home and footprint The home we built when both of us were in Corporate America needs a new family! Our kids are married and we have 2 1/2 grandchildren living near and far. We are downsizing and need to move. Our wonderful home is for sale and it needs a family that wants room to grow and a lovely pool in the back yard. We have almost an acre which is less than a mile off the freeway and our kids attend Maple Grove Senior High School which was recently identified as one of the top 10 High Schools in the US. Here is MLS; take a look and visit the Open House Sunday 12-3 pm: http://matrix.northstarmls.com/DE.asp?ID=15924838947
