Squares and wool

I agree with you (who left a comment about the amaryllis), it is very nice to be welcome by beautiful plants. And guess what? at the end of each month we can adopt some of them (without the container though). I hope I can get one or two of those bulbs.

On Satturday, I've been working on some squares. Annica, I promise I did not copy from you :-)
And On Sunday I was off to visit a Fair of the Wool. Unfortunately photos were not allowed. That's a shame for you because there was an exhibition of textile art with very good pieces. Really worth the trip. And the crafters had beautiful items too. Some of them go from the rabbit (for angora) or sheep or alpaca to the finished garnment, through hand-spining, hand-dying and hand-weaving. I was quite a good girl and bought only two batches of wool:

very thin mohair
almost raw wool
As you can see, my assistant is in great shape...

Have a nice evening all!

Vero your quilt looks very contemporary. That is the trend right now. So that makes you very trendy.

Your assistant is very handsome. I am sure he is very good help.

I hope you get an amaryllis bulb or two when they change the flowers.

Liebe Vero, mein Kater ist kein guter Assistent, er wollte mich gerade schon wieder davon abhalten, Dir einen Kommentar zu schreiben. Die Mohair-Wolle sieht gut aus, was wird daraus? Das erste Bild ist umwerfend.
Aber noch etwas Schönes kannst Du in meinem neuen Post bewundern, es dürfte Dir bekannt vorkommen.
Lieber Gruß vom Wurzerl

Hello. My wife and I bought our house about 6 months ago. It was a foreclosure and we were able to get a great deal on it. We also took advantage of the 8K tax credit so that definitely helped. We did an extensive remodeling job and now I want to refinance to cut the term to a 20 or 15 year loan. Does anyone know any good sites for mortgage information? Thanks!
