Good Day/Bad Day

Diana, I love the caterpillar, The edging you gave to me is out in the weather and I haven't done anything to it! And Gail, I love the Halloween garland, so cute.
Today was one of those days that got better later in the day. This morning my husband and I took my son's dog to the Humane Society because they were offering shots and microchipping for a very low price. Of course everyone else in town thought it was a very good price too. We waited in line for 3 hours! When we got there and the line was clear out the door and down the sidewalk, I thought about turning to my husband and saying "let's go to the vet."But we stayed. Later when I told him I thought about just leaving and getting the shots elsewhere, he told me he had thought the same thing. Our son was in Seattle and they had hired a dog sitter but when we went to their house, the sitter was gone, she only worked until 1:00 and my son didn't come home until about 4:00. So we had Henry longer than we thought we were going to today. But this afternoon I answered an ad on Craiglist for some weaving wool. I went and bought about 28 partial cones of rug wool. It had belonged to tapestry weaver, I got to see some of her tapestries and got some wool too. Her daughter, who was selling the wool, was settling her mother's estate and she told me a couple of names of people who were starting a weaving guild in my town, so I need to get in touch with them. Also I won a weaving book from http://www.eweniquelyewe.blogspot.com/ called, "Weaving As An Art Form"by Theo Moorman. When I bought the wool, the seller showed me a tapestry done in the Theo Moorman technique. How cool is that!
Tomorrow we are going to Seattle to visit the Nordic Museum, http://www.nordicmuseum.org/. Hopefully I will have some pictures to share about it.
My big buy

My big win
