  1. Mary I swear we must be long lost sisters. I am always amazed how much we have in common. Each show you reveal one more nugget (did you hear me squeal?) My hubby and I went to Rabbit Hill Inn about 15 years ago on our anniversary!!! How I loved it being a fellow rabbit fanatic! I too, spent hours and hours completing an intricate Stave puzzle. The owl you did was awesome! Also, several years ago I put together a weekend knitting retreat in Jefferson, NH for my students and one of the days we went to Yarn Garden in Littleton! She had just opened and had snacks and refreshments for us all. Such nice people.
    Are you going to SPA? April and I will be there on Saturday and would love to see you. Email me if you will be there so we can synchronize our watches and plan a meet up. If you don’t plan on going at least we will be able to connect in April in Newburyport!!!
    Thanks again for an enjoyable episode!

    • Hi Gail
      Sorry for the delay in getting back to you! I hope you have/had a great weekend at SPA! Sadly, it was not in the cards for this year but will try to next year. I’ve heard only fabulous things about it! Can’t wait to see you in April! It will be a great day 🙂 I’m actually heading back to Littleton this weekend (bringing my MIL for her birthday…she loves it there too!) I just may have to pop into the Yarn Garden again!!! Hee hee!

  2. Mary, send me the Liberty Yarn. I’ll overdye it for you. Sounds like a great vacation. Take me next time! XOXO
