Jackie,
Thank you sooooo much.  We have been haying and irrigating so haven’t had a bunch of time to work on knitting.  This will be wonderful to do until we start haying again (pray for rain on the western slope of Colorado).
I’ve learned so much from you, starting with “Needlework University” and the triangular shawl.

Hi Jackie!
This is wonderful news thank you so much!
I have truly enjoyed your tutorials on lace. I love to knit lace and do lace knitting. But the best part is picking up the little pieces of genius I never would have noticed.
Thank you so much for all the time and energy you have put into “Bits of Lace.” It has truly been a wealth of information and learning!
My choice of bead color is “Blue Sapphire” and the address you have on file is correct.
Again, thank you for all your time,
Samalee
