OK, now back to blogging!!

What a bad, bad blogger I have been! My life seems really hectic, but I am going to do better...LOL, yeah right! At least, I am going to try to do better!

The big news is that my second daughter, Aubrey, is engaged to a really sweet guy, William Edwards and I am a very happy marmee! I have one very precious daughter-in-law and now I get to add a just right son-in-law. I guess I will have to add to my tattoo now William! (I have a tattoo of 9 stars in my left ear, one for each child and Marie, my d-i-l)

I have a new addiction, tri-loom weaving. I have made two shawls and am working on my third. Since I have decided I can't stop this new habit, I have decided to put them up for sale.

So, come into the shop and see what is new....or buy it off the blog...either way, I am going to continue this REALLY awesome fiber addiction and start teaching classes soon. My shawls are 125.00, unless they include handspun, then they are 175.00.

I just finished the ruffled edge wrap from I cast on 100 instead of 40 and made it a shawl instead of a scarf. I love, love, love it!

I am so excited about opening up the inspiring world of creativity to so many people. We have decided to take certain items on consignment that represent what we strive to promote here at Enchanted. We now carry handmade drawstring bags by Barb Somerville,

lovely shetland spinning batts and little "glitz kits" for your fiber, and soon will be adding pottery made by Amanda Pauley of Russellville. We are also proud to carry hand turned bottle stoppers by Carl Hall of Bowling Green.

We are having a Halloween Open House on October 31st. Wear your costume and receive 20% off your purchase (except spinning wheels and looms)

On November 6th and 7th we are having Yarn Amnesty Day. For every pound of unwanted yarn you bring in, you will recieve $1 store credit. The yarn is to be donated to a local prayer shawl ministry.

Nuno Felting workshop - November 18th This is going to be tons of fun!! From 10:30 to 3? we will be creating a silk scarf with wool embellishments in a wet felting technique. The cost of the workshop will be 45.00, which includes your supplies and lunch. You will come away with a finished scarf worth 75.00 or more. If you have a special fiber or glitz you wish to use, bring it along! Please let us know if you want to attend this workshop by November 11th, as space is limited and we need to have supplies enough for everyone.

I want you to see the most adorable little thing!! This is my Fairy Goddaughter.

Until next time, I want to leave you with an awesome quote I found today.

"There can be no happiness if the things we believe in are different from the things we do." - Freya Madeline Stark
