Morning dear friends…well it is Monday again.
Where did the weekend go – it was a long one wasn’t it, with the 4th thrown in there.
We went to Milton (Doug’s home town) for the parade and then visited my sister. We also went back to visit her again on Saturday and stopped at a local shop that sells retail plus some antiques.
We found this sweet basket for $4.50.
Now I’m not sure the age of it but I loved the details and the handle.
Got this great large picnic basket – looks like something spilled on the inside long ago and it stained all the way through to the caning. But that’s fine - I don’t mind it. I’m going to clean it up really good and put it in the screen room by the sofa for necessary things like the fan control and books…you know all the stuff you use but don’t want it laying around on the tables. I will keep a roll of paper towels in there too for spills.
Lookie here….the old logo even is in tact and it’s a Burlington, Iowa product (same name as my town!) Now a girl just had to have that, right! And they call it a hamper – forgot that they were called that way back in the day.
We’re going to Janesville today to meet friends from Arizona who are passing through to their son’s house in Wisconsin Rapids. We meet them once a year at the same restaurant for lunch. We get our 2 hour visit in and boy do we chat! Thank goodness Doug and Jim enjoy each others company because we don’t even know they are there! (smiles….)
Then have to take my IPad back to Best Buy and see why it doesn’t recognize my camera card reader. Verizon tried to fix it but said it’s in the IPad, not the connectors. Darn, always something that isn’t an easy fix.
Then we will visit my sister again.
Please say some prayers for our little Zayne.
They took him to the emergency room yesterday because he had stopped breathing several times and his little face was very red. They think it may be in his esophagus and had them take him immediately to Children’s Hospital in Milwaukee.
He’s so tiny! Today they will do tests on him. Please pray that it is nothing serious. He was 3 weeks old yesterday.
Hopefully this week yet we can drive up to Wisconsin Rapids where Country Freckles is located…she is going to take some of my products on consignment so I have been sewing like crazy. I would like to go on Thursday because she has her hooking girls there then – I always love seeing what they have created.
My hooking is still with Margie (Hungry Hook Primitives) because she is matching some wool for the background of my piece I’m working on…so when she’s done dying the wool she will send it back and then I’ll have something to work on again….and use my wonderful swivel/rotating frame -Yeahhhh. Oh and just maybe we will get to see our friends again – remember that’s where they were headed.
Oh my goodness I almost forgot…I won a giveaway over at http://thewoolcupboard.blogspot.com/
Linda was doing something different – the first ones to leave a comment won the item of their choice. She was offering 3. I was blessed with winning my choice – a pretty large stitchery.
It says to do it on aged Muslin but I’m going to work it on aged Osnaburg.
Thank you Linda!
Have a wonderful week everyone
