Blog Neglect

Oh, my gosh, you need to go here and see what Kristen has written on her blog about me. It makes me feel a little sheepish and sort of embarassed - yet really pleased and is giving me big smiles. I've gone back and read it a couple of times for a big ego boost.
Kristen is one of the very first folks that I felt a connection with a few years ago when I started my Etsy shop. I have checked out her blog weekly and admired her handwoven goodies. You know the pictures that you get in your mind of what someone must be like? Kristen remains there as a kind, generous, intelligent woman out East, but I was sure she must be in her late 20s 'cause she has two wee kids. Now I find out this Attorney trained woman is about the same age as my own girls. Well past 30.

I've been neglecting this blog because I'm out of my normal routine with the grandgirls and their dog, Knox, staying with us for the week. We have played tons of games, knitted, spun, shorn sheep, groomed winter hair out of the horses, and last night went to see "Nim's Island" 8 year old Meredith has decided that she wants to put some stuff in my Etsy store so is right this minute weaving a pot holder.

What lucky grandgals you have! Can't wait to see what Meredith makes for your store.

I thought Kristen's post about you was lovely.
So glad you are having a good time with your grandkids.

Merily said...

Grandkids are a good reason to neglect your blog. :) That's so awesome that Meredith wants to do artsy things and put stuff in your shop!

Oh, and Kristen's blog post about you was so nice. Kristen's a sweetie. :)

Just want to say that I love Meredith's pot holders and handspun yarn.

I loved the post too...everything she said is true. :)

HI, Maple,this is Dee from Sip-n-knit. I am enjoying your blog. Hopefully one day I will have my own blog. You are a fun grandma!!

Lisa said...

Having fun with grandkids is more important that blogging anyway right? Enjoy them while they're there!

(now I'm blushing) I'm so pleased you liked it! It was a pleasure to write about you and your work, Maple.

And well past 30 indeed - turned 40 (gulp!) this January, lol! Can't wait to have grandkids of my own, someday. When I'm about 70. At least. ;-)
