Just to let you know Susan Dial out of North Carolina just finished a theatrical  piece work of art for a mermaid. I sent her teeswater lock that she then died and made the wig. Sue you did a wonderful piece of art.

 Sue washed the locks

Dyed the yarn for finishing the Mermaid.

In the end a beautiful wig. I love this hair. Again a great project finished using Susan's Fiber goods. Susan just got in a big variety of yarns 100 % alpaca in a variety of colors. Soft and luscious.

Dragon Flies

Nut Crackers.

To round off the week I went on a day trip to deliver sheep to Knoxville Tn. Marilyn Lajoie from Bosic N. C. picked up the sheep and were on there way. The teeswaters have a nice home and Marilyn nice sheep.

I thought because of the long trip across country Marylin should call the ewes, Thelma and Louise and the Ram Clyde. What do you think?

Get ready we will be shearing in two months.

When I got the sheep delivered I went to see my Grandsons Gymnastic meet in downtown Knoxville. He did very well and looked like a pro.

This Grandson Joey is a contortionist makes me proud that he can do so good in Gymnastics. He took 4th over all and in some categories took first. 

In the end we probably all have a great week. We just say.

Have a lovely week. Hope to see you at the knitting retreat.
