Story of Week and Stash Enhancements  No new stash.                                    I did a good bit of knitting on a few projects, one of which has a deadline. Last Thursday I attended a Painting with a twist for Melissa’s Birthday.

Still in the thinking about it faze. We shall see what happens.
