Random Thoughts While Waiting for Spring

Another day, another snow storm.  Friday morning brought several more centimetres of wet white stuff.  There was more last night and again this morning.  Sigh.

I spent yesterday at TrueKnit7, a local craft sale, sharing a booth with my friend, Candace. I enjoy the social aspect of sales; it's always nice to chat with people I haven't seen for a while and to experience the work of new craftspeople. I managed to find a few birthday gifts. I'm pleased when I can buy pieces from local artists. Here's a shot of our table:

      I'm not sure about the profile choice, either. "Anonymous" is fine.
