APRIL is National Letter Writing Month!!  OHMYGOODNESS!!!! (all the happy feelings)

I also have a shout out to the amazing SUSAN aka Rista1313 and her Project bags that she makes!  GIRL CAVE BAGS are just so awesome!   I recently acquired a sweater sized project bag and am SO THRILLED!

 Adventures in Juniper Grace Land :

I have recently been doing a lot of awesome artsy fartsy things including becoming an Associate of the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria!  It comes with a name tag and an awesome opportunity to give back to this community that I love :)

MARLIES came to visit me... bearing wonderful gifts...  wow it was so great to see you THANK YOU for making time for me! 

I also had the chance to stop by SaltSpring Island and visit my favourite yarn shop there ELDERBERRY YARNS.  I picked up a skein of sparkly ANCIENT ARTS YARN in the She Sells Sea Shells colourway.   I have plans to knit matching MUK CUFFS by Jana Huck for my bestie and I.

I've also fallen completely in love with Water colour painting.  CREATIVEBUG has an excellent Intro to Water Colour Painting class right now taught by Yao Cheng.  


Currently on my needles I have :
- CANOPY by the amazing Melody of Mandarine's knit in Mountain Top by Classic Elite Yarns Crestone.

- SANDHILLS LACE SHAWL by Melissa Stajda aka Heyladyhey.

- HEXI PUFFS for my 'The Bee Keeper's Quilt' by Tiny Owl Knits

- Awesome Neon socks from RAIN CITY KNITS yarn using my all-time favorite sock pattern 'How I Make My Socks' by Susan B. Anderson.

- CAMILLA SHAWL by Carrie Bostick Hoge knit from the amazing gift of Sweet Georgia Worsted in the Orchid colourway from my Hubby.

Needle Adjacent: 
- SHOE CANDY by Leah Oakly.

I guess that's it for now :)  
I send you my love and hugs and happy sheepy thoughts across the miles!
