Jean came up this weekend without Dan and the kids. Joesph woke up sick on Wednesday, so the decision was made for Jean to make the trek up north to visit her family alone....thankfully Joesph is on the mend.
I met Jean thru blogging a few years ago while she was still in Germany and actually blogless. Over the years she, I and our husbands have become good friends. The way our lives have mirrored each other's has been uncanny..........sisters from different mister's I swear....LOL. We discovered more coincidences this weekend and had a good laugh about it. Anyhoo.......Jean is a good friend and brought me a little present..the cabled Starbucks mug and I LOVE it.
Funny thing, both Ken and Jean's uncle looked at the mug trying to figure out what the heck it was about it that we liked....heehee! Ken and I enjoyed meeting Jean's Aunt and Uncle who are basically the same age as us....it was a fun night, even if we almost had to be escorted out of the restaurant for being there waaay too long..haha! Thanks Jean!
Oh my........such wonderfulness this box holds! Over the years, I have received Spin Sales notices from the Humble Hills folks and have resisted the temptation. One night however, when I was up much later than I should have been, Andy posted some fleece and that was it.........I gave into the temptation.
Immediately after I hit that paid button, I thought to myself......you'll be sorry...remember...that pledge of not buying fleeces without seeing them? I figured I would probably be disappointed as my standard for acceptable fleece has changed immensely over the years.....yes, I admit it...I am a fleece snob.
Well, I can tell you that nothing in this fleece disappoints! It is a 3/4 Merino/1/4 Romney Morritt fleece and it is stunning! If you ever get tempted by one of Andy's fleeces.........go for it, you will not be disappointed!
Tomorrow this fleece is getting a bath and I will be lugging down my carder once it dries....wheeeeeeeeee~
