Sheila, I'm so sorry to hear about your tooth. I am glad, however, that you have an appointment tomorrow and you will feel better soon.

Wendy, thanks for the advice at the end of the episode. Like you, I am a homebody. It's hard for me to leave the house. We moved to the northeast from the northwest almost 5 years ago and i am still finding it hard to get out to meet new people. I'll have to work on it.

i look forward to your show every week. thanks!

5 stars.
As with folksmith, Sheila, I hope the tooth has been fixed. Agree with Wendy that tooth pain is a bad one. The mitts are looking good.
Wendy, the shawl design sounds very interesting, and I am eager to see the gift from Lois.
Sheila, I understand your frustration with Kim. Definitely need a talking session.
take care,
and Wendy....thanks (wink) :))
