It's just the best thing when people who have purchased our yarn bring in a finished article to share! Today, Beverley came in with a beautiful lace scarf she had knitted from Tilly's Lace 1/12s which she had purchased from The Lucky Ewe at last year's Tasmanian Craft Fair at Deloraine. It's on it's way to the Spindle Tree in Salamanca, Hobart. Thanks for sharing Beverley.
Tilly, Shawn and Me (...well "I") are back on deck and the little shop has re-opened for the Spring 2013 here in wonderful up-town Oatlands. For September, just on Sundays, Mondays and Tuesdays 10 - 4, and we'll see how we go, but as ewe all know, I'm usually only a phone call away from an opening request. I've turned the Online Shop at www.theluckyewe.com.au back on and we have lots of great new woolly goodies on the shelves. .... and quietly, just so many 'thank ewes' go out to my family, friends and wonderful clients for their love and support over the last so difficult 6 months. xoxox
