We are so fortunate here in our part of Arkansas to have been so close to the Joplin tornado and to not have sustained any damage. The relief efforts from our area are heartwarming and the folks up there have a long struggle ahead of them to put their lives back together. To help the Joplin folks http://www.sema.dps.mo.gov/recover/donations.asp gives several ways to help.

New Projects, Lots of Green and a New Family Member
Lots of new things happening in my world it seems. New member to our family came to us this weekend. How quickly we forget what it is like to have a new inexperienced youngster in the family. He is a hoot and and I am hoping our resident "Queen of the House" soon decides to not kill him. Work is very busy for me which has cut short my time on fiber projects, but so be it. I believe I have enough "new" work this year to put in my New Mexico summer show at Ghost ranch that opens the first week in July so I am trying to not be frantic. Socks are flying off the needles and I think my Mother's Day socks for a dear friend went over well. I have started this new piece on the loom and am having a hard time sitting down to it. So much to do it seems like with all of the green around here. The grass and trees and flower beds are bursting with all of the rain we have had the past month. Honeysuckle fills the air with it's summertime sweetness.
