Work, Knitting, Stress, Spinning, Beauty and Friends

What a week it's had it all.

Last Sunday i spent the afternoon with the Young Textile and Fibre Group which is run by the local Embroidery Guild. The group is aged between 8 and 14 and they are learning to Knit and Felt a small handbag, there were some amazing and creative little bags going on, some deviated somewhat from the pattern that was provided but how can you help dropping and picking up stitches when your giggling and have a great time !!! I did a little presentation on the different types of fibre and showed them how wool comes from a sheep, is processed/carded and spun, we passed around samples and felt the differance between wool and silk and bamboo and angora and mohair they LOVED it, it was a very rewarding afternoon.

WORK - A full on week at work and i am releived to say it's Friday. And that's all i have to say about that.

I have been knitting like a crazy lady on my secret project that is due to be revealed on the 16th of July.

This week also bought to me a moment that i thought would be far off into the future. On Thursday i was blessed enough to have lunch and share the secrets of my LYS with the amazing, beautiful, talented, loving and passionate [Courtney](http://ravenscauldron.blogspot.com/). There are no words to explain what a wonderful experience this was, clearly the world meant for us to be friends, she has touched my life in a very positive way and i will be forever grateful.

Tonight i am settling down to some more knitting and a nice pot of tea.

And in a little bit of self promotion Knot Your Nanna's Knits has having a 15% off sale from 8pm tonight 3/7/09 til 8pm on Sunday 5/7/09 - check it out :)
