Miscellaney: Thought of the Day, Give-Away Update, DVSG website

Thought of the Day
In the most recent Lacis newsletter, Jules Kliot wrote, “In these times of chaos when the foundations of all that we took for granted have been removed, we must understand that it is only the human spirit, residing in ourselves that can be the source of joy. It is our responsibility alone, to rekindle this spirit and believe in our hands.” I thought his thoughts were wonderful, so I wrote to get his permission to reprint his statement here. Thanks, Jules.

If you ever get anywhere near Berkley, California, make sure that you go to Lacis. Not only is there a wonderful shop, but there is also the Lacis Museum of Lace and Textiles. Check out the website and see the wonderful slide shows. You can also sign up to receive the museum newsletter.

I have been lucky enough to make it to Lacis twice. In hindsight, I could kick myself for not going with Tom to San Francisco over the summer so that I could make the side trip to Lacis. Lacis is easily accessible from San Francisco on the Bart.

Update on the Give-Away

I have heard from both Janine and Patti, but not Kristen.

Patti, your charts will be on the way to you in Great Britain today.
Janine, in your excitement, you forgot to tell me which charts you want. I’ve emailed you twice and haven’t heard back, so I don’t know if you have gotten my emails or not. I'm anxious to get the charts to you in Australia.
Kristen, please email me with your mailing address and the two charts you want so that I can mail them to you in Massachusetts. Unfortunately, I don’t have an email address to contact you. I hope you are reading the blog so you can see this note.

If I haven’t heard from Janine and Kristen by 12pm EDT on Saturday, October 17, I will draw two more names from those who were on the list.

Delaware Valley Sampler Guild

Last night I received an email from Lynn. Her guild, which was mentioned in yesterday’s blog post, now has a lovely website that you might want to visit. Lots of wonderful “eye candy”.

I am just dying to stitch Bunnies In The Garden, which you know I found in my small stash (yeah right), and have ordered the threads from a store here in the U.K. and they should be here the day after tomorrow and then I shall start stitching it and I can't wait because it is so gorgeous. I have to tell you that I looked at all the different blocks without reading anything and I honestly liked your block the best. It is the bestest!!!!

Lots of Love
