The family from Walla Walla drove up yesterday and bought our pop-up camper. They were happy that we were asking so little for it. Basically we asked what we paid for it last fall. I posted it on Craigslist Saturday, he called 10 minutes after I posted it and they were very happy with it. I hope they enjoy it. Maybe we can get a hard sided camper at some point in the future, (one with a bathroom!)
This morning I also made reservations for a condo at D'Sands in Lincoln City Oregon for a week in May. It will be a travel month for me to be sure. I'm going to visit my mother-in-law in Nebraska for 10 days during the first part of May. Then to D'Sands and to visit our daughter for another 10 days later in the month. Am I spoiled or what? Poor hubby has to work and can't go to visit Mom, but he is going to D'Sands with me. I can't wait. I love the ocean and who knows? Maybe I'll get to see Teresa again!
So - I deleted a bunch of pictures from my earlier posts and looky here! I can show you pictures again! The first two photos are of the blanket for our newest grandchild yet-to-be-born. It's done in sections. First the center is done in two panels and sewn together and the cream border added. Now I'm working on the first half of the sheep border. It's taking a looonnnng time! Can you see the bobbins of yarn hanging off the ends? Sometimes I have up to 20 bobbins hanging off the back of the work! There is another border that goes around the sheep border too! This is about 6 weeks of work. I usually whip out a aby blanket in a day or so. This is a new experience for me. :-) I only work on it at home though because it takes lots of concentration and has lots of yarn hanging off the back of it that keeps tangling up in each other. I think it will be really cute when it's finished though, don't you? I've never attempted something like this before and although it can be frustrating, it's fun too. There are so many ends woven in on the backside that I'm going to have to find a way to put a back on this to cover up the mess. Any ideas?
Have a wonderful day!
