Over the hills and through the high desert....

I've managed to sneak in some crafting time here in Redmond, OR to make a little something for a tiny, sweet-smelling, chubby-toed little one-month-old today. Grandma B was generous enough to let me raid her amazing vintage fabric stash and Tutu kindly lent me her trusty kenmore sewing machine. I learned to sew on a kenmore that's older than I am so know they can be a little persnickety. When I first sat down there was quite a bit of tension between us, but we managed to iron out our differences (sorry - couldn't help the puns. I blame my father-in-law's influence rubbing off on me).

Anyway, I will post pics once we're back home and reunited with our camera-to-computer-cable-thingy which we forgot to bring (along with about 27 other semi-necessary but forgotten things). And since this post is without pics, I'll leave you with the image of my sweet children frolicking in the clean, crisp air aside their little farm buddies...and wait...what's that?...4-year-old Max and Holden urinating side by side in the flowerbeds. Gotta love the farm!

Your farm holiday sounds like fun. Lucky you for getting to fossick through the vintage stash - no doubt you found some lovely things. My 90 year old Grandmother passed away a few months ago and my Mum gave me some of her stash (she even had some fabric remnants of a little dress she made me in 1968!) including some vintage cotton reels, beautiful buttons etc. Precious treasure!

Looking forward to seeing the photos! Peeing outside, an oldie but a goodie. :) Tracey
