In my dreams last night I was searching for cake.

There were a many adventures all involving a different person.

In each segment I was with someone - searching for cake. It was a mix of people, from those I haven't seen for years to those I have just met on the internet.

We got close but never found cake.

Lots of running around

My entire schedule is now twisted around thanks to once again having a shop. The Official opening is coming soon. Until then hours are sporadic. Thurs. - Sun. 11- 6ish.

In all of this momentary craziness a wonderful surprise package arrived from

Rockpoolcandy, if you don't follow this blog, start now.

Inga sent a fabulous skein of yarn that she spun, and calls blue moustache. I love that it's perfect for me in everyway. The photo well that's not so good. but here it is posted anyway.
