15 Years

Dear Husband,

It has been fifteen years today since we got married.  I love you more than I did that day.  I loved you so much that day that I didn't think that it would be possible to love you even more.  We had a rough first year but we made it through and we are stronger with each passing year.

We have survived loss of loved ones, moving three times to different states, being away from family, and the addition of three wonderful children.  I can't imagine anyone else I would have wanted to share it with.  Thank you for choosing me to be your wife.  I hope you know just how much you mean to me and how much I love you.  I know that God gave me an amazing gift when He sent you to me.  I am looking forward to the next 15 years.

I love you,

Spin A Long

I finished my AllSpunUp spin a long fiber last week.  I ended up with 1230 yards of a laceweight.

Fiber 80/20 Merino Silk in the Down to Earth colorway.  I am hoping to make a circular shawl with it.

Where Did Those Two Weeks Go??

Isn't it amazing how time gets away from us.  I can't believe it has been two weeks since I posted last. 
I have finished a hat for a friend of mine who is going through chemo for breast cancer.  

I tried my first corespun yarn also.  I like the idea of this yarn but it is so much harder to do than it looks.  I am kind of picky about how my yarn looks and I never really know what to do with this after I am finished with it.  

I have been spinning a lot since it is Tour de Fleece.  I have yarn that is drying that I will show off in the next post.
