ETA: Getting the keys to my new home later today. Posting may be spotty and sporadic, though I’ll update if not here, then on The Eclectic Poet or Everybody Has A Story on FB. The actual move is tomorrow and I’m looking forward to my first post from a good place, a new perspective and a heaping dose of inspiration both fibre-y and otherwise.

Cheers All!
