Send her some blog love please.

My sister Penny is getting her blog going again, The Black Sheep Cottage. Penny, is a very talented person. She is offering workshops in soy candlemaking, hand dyeing yarn and making soap. We have a hidden secret here in Bedford, an art center. The Old Jail Art Center is actually an amazing local landmark. It is our original county jail. Built from local limestone, everyone knows where the old jail is. They now need to know what it houses! If you are in the Bedford area, check them out. Penny's classes start next week, so wish her luck!!!
Thank you everyone for the good wishes on my health too. It is a case of hurry up and wait right now. Waiting on tests results before we can go any further.
It was bitter cold this morning, 0 degrees!! I am staying bundled up for sure! Hope you are warm and toasty at your house.

That's a pretty neat looking building. I'd love to take art classes in there!

Thanks for the kind words, Angela--we love our old "castle" even if the heating bills are heart-stopping. And Allison, please check out the class schedule at We are beginning a new season next week and we would love to see you. If you don't have time to take a whole course, we are thinking of starting some "one-off" introduction classes that meet once and give our students the basics. I'm still mulling that idea over.
Let me echo Conni in wishing you the best of health, Angela! Penny, I look forward to following your blog, too. It's a great inspiration to me to know such creative (and creatively successful) people.

I am glad Penny is blogging again. I've never made candles. At one time I wanted to buy old discarded china cups and make candles in them but never did.
I hope she gets a large group for her class. And I hope you are feeling better these days and that your test results are great ones.
