She is modeling a beautiful new red cardigan sweater my MIL made and kindly gifted to me, along with "the girls". The two stands in front of them will be stored away in the attic until my dreams come true and I take on a space at an antique mall.
She is retired but has a large home studio filled with her current projects and the remaining inventory from her long career as proprietor of Lisa's Yarn Shop in downtown Jackson, California. If you knit or do needlework be sure to check out the destash in her Etsy shop, MagicWithYarns.
I filled a little pot I had on hand with the very long needles that covered the ground under the Sugar Pine. I need to buy some Spanish Moss to tuck in around the edges. The closet box on the right came from her studio. Who needs California Closets when you can have an "atomic age" closet!
I did make one quick stop at an antique mall during the visit and I got a big new box of buttons just before we left plus I have nearly finished a project that has been sitting on my desk for months. Time to get back to my regularly scheduled programming!
