Sunday Post

I was asked whether or not I was continuing to use the hanging system for my Unity wood slides. I had shown a photo of those on Hip Hop this past Thursday, so hadn't posted them here, but for those who missed it, here they are - except for the overflow, since I ran out of room on my Rubber Racks. The top 3 racks were made by Unity, but do not appear to have been added to the new website. The bottom-most hanger came from Ikea, and I took half the slides off, because it was sagging too much.
I mentioned briefly that I had gotten something special in the mail. I have a very dear friend who lives in San Antonio. Her name is Bobbi and on Friday I got a very sweet card in the mail along with a hand-knit fall leaf. I immediately hung the leaf up where I can look at every time I sit at my desk and think of her.
I met Bobbi when my kids were very tiny. Bobbi used to be the owner of The Yarn Barn of San Antonio, which is where a lot of my money and time was spent. I was exceedingly fortunate in that Bobbi became a friend, and I consider her a mentor as well. I don't get to see her nearly as often as I would like, but she does come up here for MD Sheep & Wool festival - in part because one of her daughters lives in the DC area, which is quite lucky for me! She is a truly a dear and gracious lady.

I've got one card to share today before I sign off. There's a DT Search going on over at the Splitcoaststampers CAS Challenge and I made a card for the first round tryouts. The parametres were to use ribbon and some sort of bling to make a card with a decorative theme. I went with Christmas, since I need more cards to send out.
I made it to round two! I'll post that card at the end of the week, when the round is over. See you in the morning for the H{ippity} Hop!
