Wool therapy - knitting project attracts ex-cons

  1. Hi Valerie,
    Thanks for your comment at my blog about the tapestry diary just completed. I'd like to talk to you more about this year's start... you'd indicated that you're beginning one for the year... got some thoughts about getting some folks together through another blog... please get in touch privately at and let me know your e-mail, if you're interested in more info.
    Happy New Year to you!
