An Instance of Customer Service

I was just over at Kmkat and Her Needles reading about her customer service experience with Signature needles and I have to say that I was impressed. I have seen the needles in person and was impressed with their quality. I did not realize that they are an American made product. It's good to hear that their customer service standards are high, because like everything else, with these needles you pay for what you get ;-). Anyone who likes a metal needle with a really good point should consider these.

We're battening down the hatches for a storm on the Cape tomorrow. At midday we are expected to have a rapid drop in temperatures, followed by a bit of snow. We were expecting 2-3 inches the last time we got snow and received a foot. This time I am ready for anything. I can't say the same for Roxy. She used to be interested in snow, but these days the thrill is gone. I have to chase her off the porch and stand over her until her "business" is done. I would feel the same if I had to step outside barefoot with snow up to my naked stomach!

I've got a knitting project started, and the idea of turning one of my cranberry bog pictures into a watercolor (yeah, I don't know what I'm doing and will surely end up blowing up a photo instead but I want to experiment) plus a stack of books and a new Vanity Fair magazine. Even without the Internet I could stay home all weekend with no fear of boredom and without resorting to chores for amusement.

Snuggle in and enjoy the "inside" weather. Roxie looks like she's thinking hard about something. Such a cute girl!

Jazz hated the snow, too, poor tiny doggie with a bad heart that he was. Wolfie cannot tolerate even a mist of rain but he spent a lot of time "out there", poor fellow.
