News from the Nest, June 27

Good Morning!

I sure hope you had a great weekend. We have had a busy week of getting together with friends, family and neighbors and it has been delightful! Of course, we also had plenty of time to work in the yard; the weather has been gorgeous.

We were able to gather with our Game Night Crew at our home on Friday night for dinner and games. Typically we play cards, but I introduced a new game that I thought would just be a warm up for cards. We enjoyed it so much that we dismissed the cards and played Ransom Notes all night. Without exaggeration, we were crying with laughter for most of the game.

As it is, it is definitely a game for mature audiences, but the card prompts could easily be edited for younger audiences. I’ll be taking it on our family vacation this weekend, I think my mom will enjoy it.

    1. Hi Barbara,

      Thanks for your comment! You’ve prompted me to put out some potholder patterns. I just did some research on the best yarns to use and will begin some patterns asap!

      Hugs, Lynn
