On the way home we stopped at the Red Barn to load the kiln with pieces from the pottery classes for adults. The other ceramics teacher had some of her own lovely pieces already in there.
Stephan refinished the fire damaged calendar holder he had made for us a few Christmases back.
I washed the afghan Karen knit last year and it is as good as new.
I always have some knitting project to occupy my hands when appropriate while sitting, listening, watching or riding in the car. The latest was very different, using ruffle yarn. Here is the finished scarf which I sent away as a gift.
Wednesday afternoon I took father and son to the airport for their first of three flights to Yellowknife, Canada, in the Northwest Territory. It was quite an opportunity and honor for Mike to be invited to help professional ice-carver-son-Stephan in the Long John Jamboree winter festival. I found a photo online from Day 1. Can't wait to see the finished piece.

Meanwhile, here in warm Upland, I have kept so very busy. Several commitments came together at this time, but not without moments of respite--wonderful fellowship with friends.
Thursday I was invited to visit a friend at her bed and breakfast--The Loft Inn. We enjoyed coffee and goodies and three hours of conversation in her lovely upstairs alcove.
As I was leaving, she pointed out two unique pairs of trees, grown together, inseparable. My comment, "There's a lot of love in this place."
