Wendy's Mom said...

Let me clarify!!! As a child, Wendy did tend to be somewhat of a drama queen so I took her complaints with a grain of salt. We laugh every time we talk about it as it is an attempt to make me feel guilty - the parents' bane !!!

folksmith said...

to wendy's mom...i had to laugh when you said that wendy is somewhat of a drama queen. my husband and oldest daughter seem to be in that category. too funny how they only remember these moments. i'm sure everything will turn out well for her on her drs appt on monday.

You ladies look beautiful as always! Wendy I'm so sorry to hear about your leg. :( I hope the healing goes quickly. Your shawl is gorgeous. Those blocking wires sure work great. Someday I will get them, I hope. Hugs to you both!

Loved the show. I recently went to a quilt show and The Yarn and Fiber Company was there so I had to get some Romantica lace yarn, and I bought the pattern for the Hydrangea shawl. Can't wait to start after I get some of my present projects off the needles. Also I recently got a Hundai Elantra and love it. I do a lot of stop and start driving and I get 29-30mpg. I was told as it warms up here in NJ, the gas blend changes and I should get even better gas mileage. Hope everything works out with your leg!
