In The Dark

Last night we found out how hot it can get and how quickly with no airconditioning!  Storms caused an electrical outage and thus no electricity from 8 p.m. until 5 a.m.  Tom and I sat out on the porch and chatted, which was so nice.  It did get hot quickly and what can you do with no computer or television etc.?  I read my audio book and knitted a topper for one of the beautiful towels Mary B. embrioders for me.  Now we know how the pioneers survived.  They went to bed with the chickens and got up with the roosters!  All was well this morning and it was nice to see the lights and airconditioning were back on.

Welcome to HollyKnitter Chat. This is my first bloggging attempt so wish me luck. What am trying to do is make my blog a center for discussion. I would like to discuss varied topics from knitting and recipes to good news. I am excited to say the Artfire studio is going well and thank you to all who have looked, purchased and commented. I could not do it without my dear husband ,Tommy (My photographer and sweetie for over 34 years), my friends Audrey, Martha and Jean (all three help me with the website, and/or trimming the items for sale and charities). I recently started a new packaging collaboration with Vicky Ritchie of Holiday House at Holly Lake. With Vicky's help I can now offer my cloths in attractive packaging. I have just added a “Chef Smiley” cloth and a cloth made with a beautiful Butterfly stitch. Vicky and I have some great ideas so stay tuned....
