From across the pond

This is me and Simmy in a fast photo while she and her family stopped by to talk dyeing and say hello. Simmy is a blogger and she arranged for her family to come to America for the first time and stay with other bloggers, none of whom they had actually met! Fascinating and clever! We were all in the kitchen at one point and I asked if anyone would like a cold drink (it was 90 degrees!) and no one stepped up to the sink, so Simmy chimed up and said, “Oh stop being so English, have some water!” (referring to their British politeness!). And so they did. It was a brief visit but a fun one, perhaps another year we will connect again. You can visit Simmy’s blog at
