full moon

This is what I woke up to yesterday. Sometimes there are instant rewards for waking up early. This is the moon setting behind the cherry orchard at 5:30 a.m.

Husbands and Flea Markets

Never let your husband go out of town where there is a flea market without you. The result is unwanted "special gifts".
Jeff drove a trailer to Quartzsite, Arizona for friends. If any of you know anything about Arizona, you know that Snowbirds like it there. And even better is Quartzsite where there is thousands of acres of free R.V. parking space for months on end. And they think they are going to get rich quick by setting up their little tables with nick nacks that someone can't live without. So after being gone for 3 days, (yeah, time with the 5 Little Lovelies, videos and sewing) he came back with treasures for me and ....our girls. Notice there are 3 cookie jars. My guess is the duck is going to be up for grabs, so anyone that really wants it speak now or forever hold your piece. there is also 3 covered pie plates, a combo tea cup & pot in the shape of an english cottage and an electric skillet, identical to the one we received as a wedding gift more than 35 years ago. He knew how much I liked cooking in the old one and since he didn't get around to fixing the broken leg, he figured this was a good deal because it's in such good shape. And the grand total of this good deal is $60. Wow! I just don't know what to say dear. Thank you?

October Red Work Block

Okay I got October Red work block done before November 5th. I'm enjoying this. It's mindless. The block is on the piece that I'm working on from a photograph I took at Fitzgerald Marine Preserve. Someday I'll finish it and you can see the whole thing.
