Spent a lovely day at SPA knitting event in Freeport, Maine yesterday with my friend Holly. It’s a small event but fun. No classes or anything...you just bring your knitting or spinning and hang out in any of the public areas in the hotel. Spontaneous “classes” may or may not set themselves up and it’s all very laid back. Afterwards we went to one of my favorite yarn shops “Mother of Purl” in Freeport, Maine. They have expanded and have amazing store samples. Sweaters to just die for. Our heads are spinning with so many ideas. Hit a local quilt shop “Cottonweeds” which used to be right next to Mother of Purl but they moved down the road and expanded too! Lovely store. Holly had never been in a quilt shop and she was impressed. We found a really cool and easy looking project bag pattern...no zipper :). I’m deficient in zipper sewing skills...always looks like a monkey did it but I can do a parachute hook which this pattern calls for :). Can’t wait to make these bags....pics soon hopefully. My friend Holly is vegan so I always let her pick the restaurant. She always picks unusual and interesting ones. I’ll be the first to admit, I don’t know what some of the stuff on the menu even is sometimes. I had a great grilled chicken salad and managed to lose another lb. yesterday despite our stop to the bakery that sells vegan donuts :). So yeah any day where you can buy yarn, lose weight and eat a donut too is a good day :)
PS The Pure Barre exercise classes are going great. The studio I go to only offers classes Wed. And Saturday so I found another place to a third class on Tuesday......so I guess I can say I’m hitting the “barre” scene :).
