Greetings from Maine………
An early spring, and early ice-out has us putting in docks and cleaning up the yard when we're usually impatiently watching the lake ice as it slowly melts away.   I feel as though we've been given the gift of an extra month to enjoy our lake!

This morning I heard the unmistakable sounds of geese flying overhead.  Most of our migrators have continued north, and this flock may have kept going, too, since I see no sign of them on the water now.

Isn't this a lovely watercolor by my artist friend, Kimberly Shaw?

See her tea cards here.  All are painted with her original designs, and each has a little tea bag included.

Here's a pretty spring project to inspire you:

The Starlight Shawl by Dutch designer, Hanneke.


A crescent shape makes it easy to wear, and our scrumptious silk and wool lace weight yarn is wonderful to work with.   
It drapes beautifully and the silk content imbues the colors  with a soft sheen.  This pattern has both charted and written instructions.   Size 4 US (3.5mm) needle recommended.      Purchase our kit for $29 in your choice of colors below by entering a 1 in the box.
