    That’s it. I’m on my way over there now. . . .
    I finished the blackberry beret today- it is so perfectly adorable that I can hardly stop kissing my boy!

    I enjoy your blog. I love the rugs you’ve made. How are they made? Did you use rovings? Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to your family.
