I find rainy weather to be most enjoyable -- I love feeling all snug and protected inside with my stitching projects when it's raining away outside. And, I recently purchased a RAINBOW umbrella. It's the coolest thing, and it's big enough for two people underneath (or one person and a duck.)
I'll be sending these charts off to the distributors next week, and you can order the charts and kits through my web site at www.shakespearespeddler.com. Enjoy!
