bisy. backson.

I'm in Brisbane for my grandma's funeral and all the sad, joyful and bittersweet family business that goes with times like these. The day she died (last Friday) I started knitting some pods with some of her wild coloured handspun. I think they will be for any family members who want them.

Then this weekend it's Melbourne for my sister's show (And other tales, Demelza Sherwood). I am thrilled that I will also get to check out Noel's latest.

When I get back home I will have many things to show, like the Great Scarves and Scarflets project of Winter 2008 (I think I'm up to number 5), Some More Felted Pears, and I hope, sneak previews of stock for another market stall at the Old Bus Depot Markets.

Recently, a brown pear made its way to TSS's place over here.

I am so sorry to hear about your grandma. I'll be keeping you in my thoughts.

You are so lucky to have such an incredibly artistic family.

I'm sorry about your grandma.

But I do like the Christopher Robin reference. We use that one all the time here.

Take care of yourself,

I'm so sorry! I know how much you love your grandma. I guess we won't be catching up this week after all.

Condolences to you and your family. Demelza's show will be fascinating to hear more about, too.

Sending you and your family lots of love and hugs at this sad time. I hope all the funeral plans go smoothly. Even when someone has died after a good long life, it never seems the right time...

Best wishes for your sister's art show too!

Looking forward to hearing about your sisters show, and maybe even procuring a pear or two at the next market...

Sorry to hear about your grandma but I think your idea of pods with her handspun is inspired. What a great rememberance that would be.
