Sassy is knitting Christmas ornaments. Don't ask why.
She doesn't know why. It is a re-entry into knitting. And the
birds they are another story. She foundArne and Carlos
online. They are Norwegian designers writing about fair
isle and knitting birds. The Sassy one is hooked. So, she gave it
a go and photographed them with the lovely peppers, the last
of the garden produce.

A dear friend sent this embroidered runner as birthday gift.
Sassy named it: "Sassy's Flower Garden." The beautiful colorful flowers are enchanting. They symbolize the joy of a long friendship with a kindred spirit. A perfect gift!

A few weeks ago Sassy's friend of fifty years died.
Her last gift was a magazine filled with photos of
Hummingbirds. Sassy could not lure Hummingbirds
to her feeder.
Lorrayne died by allowing herself to be taken off life support. The Hummingbirds came. She sent them to my feeder..
And for Sassy's birthday daughter # 3 gave Sassy this art work;
The Hummingbird resides over the kitchen fireplace, a reminder
that those on the other side bless us.

Today was a get-on with it day. Sassy put off
weaving this experimental warp long enough.
Time to become intrepid.
A cooperative warp and weft made for a
Lovely way to wind down August with Sari silk
woven on Sari silk with a header of chenille.
This sample will inspire lots of possibilities
for future projects.
Thank you to a dear friend for the generous
gift of a half dozen Saris.
