Fiber Camp

Dianne has been here, and the two of us have been having a Fiber Camp.

We've skirted fleeces, spun, sewed (well Dianne has, I've admired as she has!), mended, knit, cooked, eaten, and laughed. She has taught me, I've taught her. An equal exchange, I hope. While she is leaving a lot of things behind for me, her truck isn't leaving empty! LOL Isn't that the best type of friendship?

She brought two denim shirts, she applied some of my hand-woven fabric (Zephyr warp and Lorna's Laces sock yarn weft) to the yokes and collar tips for our camp shirts. Howard took the pictures for us.

She leaves tomorrow. It has been a lot of fun. I'll miss her.

Dianne and I were matched up as knit buddies by Joan Hamer in 95 or 96. We've been working at it since then. It is funny, but there are a lot of places where we resemble each other, and many other places where we diverge. But, that is the fun part of friendship -- we enrich each other.

So, Thanks for being a great friend, Dianne!

Thanks for posting the pictures! They look good. Glad you had a good time, and I bet you'll sleep well this weekend!
