Busy Week-end

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,, 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!


  1. Hi Toots, Thinking of you and hoping you had a good Monday and Tuesday. I get the biggest kick out of the fact that your DH loves to decorate for Halloween. My DH does like me (ME) to decorate, I do most of the time, but I am slow on getting it all down and scattered around this year. Soon, though.

    You are so much fun to be with during class. You are kind to all that are around you and ready to help anyone who needs help. You are a person I am glad is in my life.
