Guests are Arriving

Last night, Granny and Grampa Joe arrived safely. Tonight many more family members are coming to help us celebrate Megan's graduation. In the middle of all the craziness...we got a new car, a Toyota Corolla. It already has The Twisted Purl sticker across the back window so if you see it driving down the highway be sure to give a honk! The hub works out of Little Rock and needed a REALLY good gas mileage car, and this one gets close to 40 per gallon. Sounded good to us!

Amazingly enough, I also got some new fiber posted on Etsy. Here is Clown's Hair. Next, a little festival inspired Cotton Candy sock yarn.
I do want to get more posted today...hopefully, in between yard work and shopping I can get some fiber listed. It is just so hard for me to part with fiber. I dream of how gorgeous it will look spun.
This morning, I came across this verse:
"Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest." Matthew 11:26
It gave me great comfort in my stress and exhaustion from the last few weeks of non-stop action. Like a little reminder that God loves me and is waiting for me to come to Him for recharging. I may name this fiber "Rest" after this verse.

As for me, my resting time is done, I have to mow the lawn and get some laundry moving. Plus, shopping for Megan's brunch tomorrow (at my house) and her BIG party, on Sunday, at Dad's. ♥

Gorgeous, gorgeous. "Rest" makes my mouth water. And what is with "Clown's hair." Holy cow! That is the coolest ever. It actually made me laugh out loud. It must become mine.
