Play Date

I made good progress on organizing supplies yesterday and am mostly ready for Tucson. Here is this years visual shopping list.



And so I've earned myself a play date with 'my girls' A few years back I wandered into the Grove in South Park San Diego. It was rather instantly home, a place you just feel good. Susan stocks a fabulous yarn store in the confines and Anne has a well rounded collection of books. Several other shops also reside at the Grove including some fun and funky clothing, fabric, bamboo products and intriquing gift items.

In my other life, the non bead artist life, I knit, and I've connected with a great group of women at the Grove who also knit, although our connection goes way beyond knitting it is the common thread. So today I treat myself to visiting and knitting among my dear friends. I'll be finishing my second Kiri a laceweight shawl, this one out of cream colored Habu Silk Mohair, kind of like knitting a cloud. This is my first, which I wear a lot! It's the perfect lacy scarf in just the right color for me.



The Grove is in the San Diego neighborhood of South Park which I love. Across the street you can get the best scone EVER at Rebecca's, next door is the Daily Scoop serving up delicious handmade ice cream and Krista's amazing cupcakes. Around the corner is Junque where Jeffrey stocks an electic shop of clothing, bags and various interesting house decor. And around the other corner is the Vagabond, excellent food and the best Basil martini. It's definitely a good destination!

See you tomorrow, I have a play date now.

I love that scarf! That is another on the list of things I would like to learn to do...My mom tried to teach me when I was young, but I am VERY left-handed and it never worked out :o) And, I can definitely see how that color works well with you and your wardrobe!

Marcia,
I think your next scarf should be teal so it will go better with my red hair. LOL. When are you coming to see us in Clovis again? Is your book out yet? Can't wait to see it.

Hugs,
Arline

I really like the shopping idea, with the baggies! I find I buy lots of beads I like/love/can't resist, BUT I don't end up matching those I already have LOL. Teri http://www.sandtcreations.com/wordpress
