Fiber Arts Friday ~ Contentment

This is the word that best describes my week.  Although I had a lot of activities this week, they all revolved around family and friends.  What more can a person ask for?

We were finally blessed with wonderful weather and the wild roses are in full bloom.

They bloom for only a short time in June, but while they are here they are a stunning site and the smell is amazing. 

Everywhere we look, you can see roses.
JB (Jimmy Boy) is growing like a weed.  He weighs 25lbs now and is a very handsome lad.  As you can see from the picture he really likes to get dressed up. 
Tuesday...... while I was washing fleece, a friend stopped by and we had a wonderful visit.

Wednesday......  visited with my parents and then that evening met with friends at Arcadia Brewery for WWKIP (world wide knit in public day).  We shared a meal, our knitting projects and loads of laughter. 

Thursday...... the day was spent at twirlycurlybirds house.  She helped me with some wire designs for my dutch spiral beaded shawl pins and we spent the afternoon picking and carding one of my fleeces using her Pat Green equipment. 

Friday.... helped hubby with chores this morning and will spend the rest of the day checking out all the other Fiber Arts Friday blogs and working on some more wire designs.

Who could ask for a better week?

Happy Fiber Arts Friday!!!

  5. You didn't get time with me :-( I missed our time together this week...I was even at YLYS this afternoon hoping you'd be there. I can't wait to see you tomorrow and hear all about your time with Melissa. Miss you!

  6. JB looks like he was having a great time rolling around. Made me think about the Jacob fleece I was just skirting out in the garage. All that vm...LOL Does alpaca fiber hold the vm tightly like wool does? He is certainly a cutie and I'll be he's super soft too. Sounds like you had a great week. Wishing you many more of those. Happy Fiber Arts Friday!
