Kennebunk to Charleston

We had to drop tax documents off in Kennebunk last week. Our accountant's office in is the old Kesslon Shoe factory, which has now been renovated into offices and shops. I was happy to have a quiet hour to walk along the main street of our old home town.

I vacationed with my family in this area as a child, worked the summer hotels here as a college student, and raised my children in this town. Memories are everywhere I step.

Although businesses on Maine St. come and go, much of the architecture of the town remains as I remember it.

Some things are new . . . like this covered ice skating rink where the old Mobil station used to be.
It sure beats the little rink we used to make by flooding the back yard of our old house on Cat Mousam Road in the winter!

And I discovered "Camp Wool", a little shop on Main St. that's new to me. It's filled with wool in all its forms,  displayed with antiques, fiber books and supplies, penny rugs, patterns, and so much more.

Cold Hands, Warm Hearts

Last week I wrote about the "snow fort for adults" that DH created in our front yard. Since then, he added a "snow fire pit", inspiring our neighbor across the street to do some digging of her own. She made two "snow caves" and encouraged us to have a party Friday night to celebrate what we all hope will be THE END OF WINTER!

So we invited neighbors, friends, and family to the 1st (Annual?) "Apple Freeze" Party here on Applegate Lane. We got the fire pit ready, lit luminarias, and heated up snacks and cider.

We could hardly wait for darkness to fall!

Felting Class 201

On Wednesday evening, six of us got together at my house for another felting class with local fiber artist Kathleen Gerdes.

In November, we learned to felt 3-dimensional figures;  this time we learned to make wall hangings. Here's our inspiration piece, Kathleen's "Dancing Lady.
