Today is Carole Lake's birthday!!
And Carole is one of my very favorite people on the whole planet, so I am happy to help her celebrate! I may even find cake and ice cream to eat in her honor!! May? Make that, will be certain to find cake and ice cream to celebrate!!
And tonight I will probably sign up for her newest class at Shining Needle, taught with Michael Boren. It's a set of four Christmas ornaments (although you have a choice of about eight different colorways)--they are very, very cool. Carole and Michael are even offering a finishing kit so you can stitch them up and finish them yourself and avoid the finishing deadlines--AND, if your guild does an ornament exchange, you will have something to exchange!
(if you don't know about Shining Needle, contact Kate Gaunt at firstname.lastname@example.org. . .this is one of the places that gets me into trouble about every couple of weeks . . .it costs nothing to join, but you get opportunities to take fabulous classes online)
AND, for those of us who have long loved (and stitched) Carole's Anasazi Song and Anasazi Dream--there will be a NEW Anasazi (Spirit, I think) around the first of the year.
So, I am very, very happy to have Carole in the world and in my life. YAY, Carole!!
