The Shrines are in

I was in a matchbox shrine swap and these are the shrines I recieved. I think they are awesome. Artists are Pam, Kai, Mahala Ninnie and Sheryl.

This is what they look like inside. They are really incredible.

This is the one that I sent out. I didn't make one for myself or I would have grouped it with the other pictures.

Here are some journal pages from last week.

I am planning on having surgery on my hand next week. It is what is commonly known as trigger finger. A simple procedure but I figure not to have full use of my hand for a week or two. My posts will definetly be shorter if I am typing left handed.

This past weekend I had spinning friends over for the day. I was spinning white cotton and then ran into difficulty and switched to some dyed blue and lavender and oh I am loving spinning it. I am hooked again. I will show a skein when its finished which may be awhile since it take a long time to spin. I picked up this shawl I had been knitting which has been a problem but I am determined to figure it out and finish it. Its nice to be reacquainted with old projects. Its almost like connecting with old friends.
