Posted by A. Lorena Haldeman on

Posted by A. Lorena Haldeman on

As you know (Bob), I mailed out the Midnight Garden HaldeCrate last week - I believe they've all now reached their destinations, and I've seen a lot of joy on Facebook and Instagram as people tag me in their happy pictures!

Base yarns Andre and Yolen are sold out, as...
