Now for packing and last minute errands before I hop on a plane tomorrow and lay siege to southern Ontario.

Wow, I meant to post this a while ago!  These Sea Urchin cushions that I designed and knitted for my Textiles for the Marketplace class (with the wonderful Leslie Armstrong) are currently in the KEW showroom (facebook).  Thank you to the proprietors of KEW for your support and feedback throughout this project!
