apple of my eye!

Were you wondering where I’ve been?

My BFF Mary and her daughter (my god daughter) Claire came for a visit and to celebrate Claire’s 12th birthday! Happy Birthday Claire! We had a real girls’ weekend, complete with popcorn and Mr. Darcy. Claire is one of my all time favorites, with her sassy attitude and her sharp mind (I think she gets that from me!). Her Mom is tops in my book too.

Claire has recently taken up knitting and completed her first sock. I put together a knitting basket for her birthday. As if she couldn’t get any better, Claire also requested a spinning lesson and seems to be a natural – the girl is good! check out that spun fiber in her hands – that is the result of a quick mini lesson and about five minutes of spinning!

  1. Woo Hoo! Happy Birthday Claire! You’re a natural at spinning!
    Now that truly makes me want to call you a bad name out of sheer envy and jealousy. But since it’s your birthday I’ll hold my tongue. Seriously though spinning is a wonderful way to relax and think about what ever is going on in your life. I hope you stick with it and cultivate a life long love of spinning and knitting.
