Packing day

Today is packing day---I am getting ready to leave early in the morning to drive to Crosslake Minnesota---hitting the road at 6 AM---or least I hope to.

                                        This little guy is still on my mind---missing him!

I bought an old Pearl McGown pattern on yucky burlap and transferred it to linen---It is called Fireside Fancy and it has stirred up ideas in my mind to hook it like a paisley shawl.

Since I took this picture I have gone over the faint lines so it is easier to see...I am currently intrigued by looking at some of these old patterns and looking at them in a new way...will see what comes of it.

Well back to packing.

Back in Kansas and missing California weather

I returned to Kansas just in time for the heat wave---wishing for some more California weather.

I am having home classes this week so it was a struggle today to get everything unpacked and put away---but I did it!

Missing Baxter...

I love my grandma

I am milk drunk

I love my mama

Getting ready to leave in a week for Minnesota and Nebraska---back to reality!!!

Only one more week in California

My time in CA is coming to an end---Doug leaves tomorrow after extending his trip because of Baxter arriving 10 days late.  My sister is here until tuesday  and then I leave on Saturday...looking forward to a few quiet days before I leave.  Yesterday Chelsea wanted a quiet day with no one around so we left and went to Napa for the day---enjoyed the trip but not the traffic.  Visited a couple of my favorite wineries---Cakebread and Fransiscan as well as Heitz and V Sattui which were not.

Looking forward to the Alameda Antique Faire on Sunday.

Here are a few new pictures of Baxter.

Happy fourth of July!
