While I don't personally know Colleen, I just wanted to have this moment to send well wishes for her family at this difficult time. Losing a fellow Hyena is extremely difficult and when you're on the same page (as in both "Yarnies" or fiber dyers) it has really stricken me. I sat back a moment ago when I heard the news. Took a deep breath and texted my boyfriend to say I love you for no particular reason. To gaze into my son's room while he's napping and to generally just be happy with everything life has given me.
Colleen of Spiffy Knits, and all of her family, along with TLC, you are all in my thoughts. ((hugs))
