Good afternoon from New York.
Last weekend, our country did its annual switch over to Daylight Savings Time. It's grand coming home from work most days before the streetlights go on. It will also be grand when the weather warms up to a consistent spring-like temperature. Yes, we've enjoyed 60 degrees F today, but clouds are now arriving to bring rain that might turn to snow overnight and result in chilling our air back down below the freezing point tomorrow.
Enough is apparently not enough.
I decided to bring home some pink and coral tulips home along with my groceries. Just seeing these blooms does help convince me that winter is in its final days.
One effect of the imminent spring arrival is the notion that we might soon not be wishing to wear so many woolen layers.
I've now celebrated this notion by offering international delivery to customers over at my Foakley Arts etsy shop. Those of you who visit the shop will notice that I am keeping the same modest shipping fee for domestic or international deliveries. I am hoping that this might entice some of you folks who live abroad to sample some of my knits.
Since I do love to knit, I plan to continue adding items to the shop as the months go by. I may also be adding some non-wool knits and even some other examples of my creativity.
Thank you all for your visits and comments. I know that I have hinted about a possible spring holiday across the Atlantic. However, some recent expensive visits to my dentist have encouraged me to postpone that holiday dream for a later season.
