Souvenirs from VT

Most folks bring back cheese and maple syrup.  Pardon me, but I can buy Cabot and Camp's in my grocery store.   BUT where else can one find hand spun and dyed alpaca yarn?  and Vermont tea? the Alpaca Fiber Mill, of course!  The photo is a bit fuzzy, like my new yarn. :-)

Vacation in Vermont

I am not an outdoor person, but Vermont may have turned me into a camper.  This sunset cruise on serene Lake Champlain for starters....

The Burlington crowd introduced me to Harpoon draft.  Yummmmmm.....

The gospel sing-along at the RV Rally in Essex Junction .....

I could really go for a Winnebago outfitted with a sewing studio!!!!

I just received this beautiful handmade card from a friend.  The leaf is hand printed and stitched on dyed cotton.  How simple is that, but how special it can be!  With a little time and creativity, we can give so much to each other.

Faded Glory

"Stars & Stipes Forever" one year ago.


After hanging on my front door all year, it has faded into mellower tones.  The elements have 
 taken a toll, but it still waves!
