Wonderful Wicked Wool!

On Tuesday, May 24, I was pleased to welcome a group of talented ladies to the shop
for an afternoon of rug hooking. 
They came with their projects & gathered around the table to share techniques and inspiration. 

 Beth of Wicked Wool kindly baked colossal cookies and decadent brownies to share
while offering hints and answering questions as shoppers looked on the scene with interest. 
 One such shopper, a young lady of about ten years showed such interest as to
inspire us to put together a class for young people. 
We are excited to share this wonderful and historic craft with a new generation! 

Don't miss our next 'hook~o~rama'  Tuesday June 14 from 1pm to 7pm...
*Mark your calendar!*
Give us a call so we can save you a seat & bake you a cookie!

Blessings to you,

PS No one has taken occupancy in my old bluebird house,
but this downy woodpecker is either knocking or trying to make his own door in...

May Flowers...

I had almost forgotten what it was like to wake up to a blue sky and warm sunshine!
What a perfect day to plant our porch baskets as well as the
'Fun~ky' containers Kaysie and I found on our adventure last Sunday!

 The work crew assembled and the fun began! 
Brookie is a born gardener,
and she loves to help her Grammie!

Paige is in charge of water detail.  She loves to sprinkle!

It was a beautiful day in the yard,
and the truck is loaded for a run to the Speckled Hen!

I hope you plan a visit to Historic Downtown Snohomish soon!

Happy Spring~


P.S.  The Snohomish Farmer's Market starts today, May 5 and runs through September.
Speckled Hen will be open until 7:00 with a special surprise between 5 & 7, be sure to pop in!

... and don't forget, Speckled Hen is open 24/7 on
