I like #75

Thanks so much to everyone who shared kind comments on the loss of Bullett.  He really was the best of dogs.  On that note and starting off this weeks I likes is a wonderful condolence note my niece sent me.  I'm so privileged to have such wonderful family, they are so caring.  I love you Anna!!

I like learning new things!  I took a felt hat making workshop this past week with Dawn Edwards.  She makes great sculptural felt hats and was a very good teacher.  I've never done any felting before except for the wonderful but short introduction my friend Kathy gave me, so it was really an informative class.  I made one and a half hats during the two day class and really learned a lot.  I hope to be able to write some more in depth posts about it in future, but here are a few pics.

 I like sailing!  Last night was the first time all year we've had enough crew to fly the spinnaker and I remembered how much I love it, and how much I miss it when we don't get to fly it. 

I like finishes!  Elsewhere on the blog this week I talked about my finished neon crochet shawl and my latest finished smocked quilt.  So check those out if you haven't seen them!

I hope you're all having a good week, and thanks to LeeAnna for keeping us positive.


  1. Cool hat and shawl! That sailing looks so peaceful.

  2. Hi Shannon! How sweet of Anna - you two must have a very special bond. That fabric for the smocked quilt looks SOOOOOO gorgeous. And sailing . . . those pictures makes me relax just looking at them.
    Happy Thursday! ~smile~ Roseanne

  3. I loved that note from Anna - so sweet. That looks like a fun hat! (And fun to take the class and learn something new!) Sailing looks wonderful - you must live near a big lake - and a "cool" way to beat the heat, too.

  4. Sailing. How lovely. That hat is something else. I showed my mother the smocked quilts - she loved them!

  5. great sailboat photo and the one of you too! Love the hat you made.

  6. Oh, you look adorable in your hand made felted hat. I imagine it would be very warm...could use one here about next January. Meanwhile, sailing what a wonderful outing. I love boats and being on the water.
