Are You Kidding Me?!:

* Brianne's Lena's Socks were slowly getting more and more wide!!! Had to rip out to the toe. Mom helped me problem solve the chart.

Gilding The Lily:

* Linda bought a Grey Flower bag from Chicken Soup Designs. I purchased a notion bag for group give away and Carrie sent along a second one for another give away and a stitch marker case for me!  Prefatio Yarns Prunus a Colorway to go with JulieSpins Raisin for the Nostalgia shawl pattern.

* Brianne bought a knitting bag from Chicken Soup Designs, too. They have generously donated a drawstring bag and notion bag set to give away in a future episode!!!

It's a Good Thing!:

* Linda loves the Blue Bird of Happiness pattern by Sara of Rabbit Hole Knits. Molly from A Homespun House Podcast filled hers with lavender.  I filled mine with "Moth Away" from Old Town Spice Shop in St Charles, Missouri.  $1.45 for 1 ounce.

* Postcards from YOUR Hometown.  Details in Ravelry thread.  Cut off date to enter 7/28.

Bless Your Heart:

* Psalm 62:5

Postcards from the Ozarks:

* The Branson area is the setting of a novel written in 1907 by Harold Bell Wright that uniquely touched the heart of millions of readers in that day.  Newly emerging from the elaborate living of the Victorian era, 1907 marked the infamous financial panic where the New York Stock exchange fell 50% in a year and nearly collapsed, and many banks went bankrupt.  America was in a recession. "The Shepherd of the Hills" brought people to the Ozarks to see where Old Matt lived and to refresh their spirits as he did.  The book gave the Ozarks a tourist boon that lasts to this day. 

Many thanks to the podcasters and bloggers who mentioned us!
