Like The Queen
Whatever happens to strike my fancy, but surely some sort of fiber content.


What a fun photo of you! I hope you'll share the story behind it. Speaking of which, I loved the bug story -- those kids will remember that day forever! Sorta like when I went to the spider museum as a kid and held a live tarantula, and didn't die!

Great summer photos! You are looking more rested than you say you are, so you 'carry it' well, Girl!

Proof of life
and guests


Proof of real fiber activity, though it's mighty little.
This is the beautiful alpaca/silk blend I have been nattering on about. I have another spindle full and will start the second one this week (she says – who knows what this week will hold). I have another bag full of this stuff too so if I'm lucky I'll get 600 yards out of it. Certainly enough for a small shawl – or maybe lace scarf and gloves? Hmmm. Or lace stockings? Oh my yes, over the knee lace stockings. Hadn't thought of that before but wouldn't it be lovely?
Christmas socks are stalled – can't find #2 needles and haven't ordered any yet. Not too happy with the limp yarn either – it's KnitPicks tweed. It's pretty but unsatisfying to knit. I guess I better learn my lesson with their sock yarn. I don't like it.
And here is a great shot of MrJamestown
a reenactment of John Smith being stung by a Stingray on the north point of the mouth of the Piankatank River – thus giving that bulge of sand and pine forest the name Stingray Point.

HotHotHotHotHot down here leaves one literarily uninspired – but I am dabbling with The Historian – Vampire novel – had no idea that was what it was about – and the author leaves me singularly un-horrified, I am pretty sure I've already figured out the plot, but I'm just curious enough to keep on reading a while. I have other options in the house, though, and if I don't get a thrill soon, I'll set it aside and pick up Italian Detectives instead.
