Wooly news.......as promised!

I promised in my last post that there would be some "wooly project" news and here it is............There is a new shop opening soon in Henderson. It's at the east end of Main Street, near Wagar's Grocery......

The new business is called "HeArt of Henderson" and it's a little shop that will be filled with arts and crafts items of local artisans. The owners of the shop are Lisa von Lehe and Serenity Meyers. I stopped in today to chat with them.


Serenity makes some lovely pottery pieces.....
 and Lisa enjoys many crafts including card-crafting......
 and crochet. Look at all these lovely pieces she's made!
 And I love to work with wool. I love to teach and share the enjoyment and relaxation that can be found in stitching. I'll be teaching some classes that will begin in early Fall.  But in the meantime........
 I'll be making some small items for sale like pincushions, needlecases, and also fabric covered journals, some clay jewelry and more. I just love it that there will be a place for those of us who love to create and want a place to share our creations!
I was so excited when I left the shop that I took a little walk along Main Street. It wasn't a very long walk because Henderson's businesses cover just about three blocks but it was a lovely walk. The temperature was mild and no humidity! This photo below is at the corner of Main Street and Hwy. 93/Scenic Byway. Resident Eileen Brandt takes care of many of the plants around Henderson, along with business owners and community volunteers. It makes for a beautiful town!
 That's the post office on the right, where you can see those gorgeous blooms in the hanging baskets and you can see the patriotic banner in the window. Postmaster Connie has a "green thumb". In the middle of the block is the Henderson RoadHaus and I had lunch there today. It was more birthday celebrating and I'll fill you in on that tomorrow.  :-)
On the south side of Main Street is one of Henderson's newest businesses.....Henderson Wine & Spirits. Looks very inviting, don't you think?
And then there's Toody's Sweet Treats which is "kitty-korner" from the Post Office. This is the former home of the drug store and it retains the soda fountain from many years ago. I just had to stop in for an ice cream treat.

And that's because this sign outside was just too inviting. I was already in a good mood, feeling pretty happy but I figured a little more happiness couldn't be a bad thing. Right?  ;-) So I sat down at the old-fashioned soda counter and ordered up a large Rocky Road ice cream cone.
And then I sat down on the park bench outside Toody's and watched the traffic go by and the motorcycles roll into town and the classic cars for the weekly Henderson Classic Car Cruise. It was a fine afternoon. In the photo above you can see the new business, HeArt of Henderson, where I started my little walk and shared my "wooly news". Granted, my news is not as exciting as what's in the real news but it made me smile just to think of teaching others the joy of working with wool, learning to do the blanket stitch, sharing tips on using old clothes for your projects and also new wools, too. So excited at the prospect of sharing so much stitching fun! 
That's all for today. Will share my last bit of birthday celebrating in tomorrow's post and who knows what else may come up during the day to share!
