I received an email today from Hedgehog Fibres requesting payment for our next shipment. It will be leaving Ireland soon. YAY!!!

That is the happy news. The not good news.

UPS sent my parcel from Meadowcroft Dyeworks (Rockshelter Sock) who are located in Pennsylvania to Minnesota. A bit out of the way. After three phone calls (including a supervisor) no one can tell me when my box will be arriving. I got told to keep watching the website. UGH!!

Canada Customs is still holding the second box of Hedgehog Fibres. There is no way to find out when it will be released. You can't phone to find out where it is in the process. They work at their own pace.

I'm going to finish with happy news. The Rowan boxes are still scheduled to be here for August 1.
Around Holme is another magazine coming from Rowan for Fall. Lots of beautiful tweeds.

The patterns in Rowan Magazine 64 are only available by purchasing the magazine. For all other pattern books from Rowan (this does not include Marie Wallin), you can purchase the book or you can purchase the individual patterns on Ravelry.
My garden is flowering. So far no more visits from the deer. Now I'm starting to worry about them. Are they okay?
