Sorry for not posting sooner, but I had one busy week-end! Saturday, I had a class at BP&HH, Penny Rug class. There is a picture posted on Gran's website, http://web.me.com/knot_yembroiderylady, it is a block of the month, but we are doing it quarterly. We got the cutest stand to hand the Welcome Flag/base, and then we make smaller ones that attached to the Welcome flag for all of the different holidays. Gretchen and Lindy are both teaching it, and they are wonderful. I really enjoy working with the wool. Sunday, well, was the Annual Street Faire in downtown Lodi, so Colleen and I headed over, or should I say walked over. She lives just a couple of blocks from downtown, so I parked at her place and we walked, and walked, and walked and walked. I did not mind, since it was beautiful Fall weather, cool, breezy and sunny!! They do this twice a year, the first Sunday in May and October. I have only gone in October, and they have 2 streets, 5-6 blocks long, one with new crafts, ect., and the other street is old, used, vintage antiques/junk. Needless to say, we only made it to the latter, but that was fine with us both. We have such similar tastes, we both love vintage lines, quilts and embroidery. I do collect the old Welch's grape jelly jars that have the Flintstones on them, so I always look for those, and I found 3 more to add to my collection, along with an old wicker picnic basket to carry my embroidery to class, and vintage embroidery pillow cases, with a fall theme, leaves and acorns, and a vintage doll quilt with embroidery and quilted patchwork. So I say I had a superb day!! I will try to get pictures to post. Have a wonderful Monday everyone!
