    Hi Gika….well, even tho it’s not Monday, “I’m trying to make progress.” We’re in the progress of packing up five bedrooms of stuff into three. Yes, we’re moving to Port Aransa and be beach bums.

    Your blog is wonderful. I’ll always have so many fond memories of you, but please continue to share all of your know-how…..we sure appreciate it.

    I’ve been inspired to do felting, but do it the hard way needling, knitting, and by machine.

    Take special care….special Lady…………..Sue

  • Karina, Thank you for your very kind words. How fun it would be to meet in person and share our enjoyment of felt-making! Perhaps, someday.

    Here’s a rough translation of Karina’s comment for my non-Spanish-speaking readers, courtesy of my webmaster:

    Gika, I would be enchanted to attend one of your sessions some day. I am a big fan of yours, but right now I’m in Barcelona without the possibility of travel. Thanks for always sending me your news. It motivates me to continue with my works. A big hug!
