One of my favorite blog people is Cindi at Cindi's Sewing. I walked all over the fair...all the way through about 4 or 5 times and was ready to go home and still hadn't found Cindi. Then I heard someone mention an elevator so I asked if there was more upstairs. Yes! As I started up the steps, there she was. I'm so glad I didn't leave before I found her. She really is a sweetie and I'm glad we've become friends.
The black toile bag and the tissue cover are both from her. She had a great booth filled with her different styles of bags and tissue covers, aprons and some other things. Tim took one look at them when I brought them home and said "She does quality work." (He's picky).
Last night when I was searching the internet to figure out where I needed to go for this fair and when, my search pulled up another Roanoke Craft Blogger. She goes by CraftNana...and NanaSadieRose. I was looking for her there, too and was lucky enough to recognize some of her stuff from her blog pics. We talked for a while and I bought that adorable checkbook cover with the vintage kids. Isn't that great? She makes bags for a living and knits for fun. It was funny..on one of my (many) trips back through the fair, I heard "Hey Frog" LOL It was this nice new friend wanting my phone number. Every time I think of hearing Hey Frog it makes me laugh. I loved it.
The other crocheted thing is a pot scrubber. It's a round dish cloth with a plastic scrubber in the middle. The woman said she started making them because someone said that they used to buy them from a churchlady who made them but the lady had died and they no longer knew where to buy them. So this lady figured it out and began making them. She only had 4 or so. I just had to try one. I love crocheted dish cloths anyway.
I also bought a new Thimbleberries quilting book for half price. I forgot to include it in the picture. I was looking at it a bit ago and, well, fell asleep. Yummy nap.
After my nap, I took Tim's mom her lunch, put a roast in the oven and put on a pot of coffee and intended to sit and blog but while looking around I became motivated to put a coat of paint on the front door. I primed it last week and then it got cold and rainy. It's a little chilly today but dry and I thought I'd better do it while I could.
Are you ready for this? This is just the first coat, and obviously the window trim isn't done yet but I really think I'm going to like it against the blue of the house. There is so much to be done to the house but this gives it a little pizzazz. I can already see I'll have to hang new curtains on that window. I think the rest of the trim around the doors and other windows will be white. I don't know if I'll get to that before winter or not.
Now I'm having that coffee and having a look around the internet. Michael is working some sort of puzzle and watching "The Jerk." One of my all-time faves. lol "He hates these cans...stay away from the cans." Yeah. Great line. Nick should be calling soon for me to pick him up..probably about the time I'll be finishing up making supper. lol Isn't that how it goes?
Have a nice weekend everyone. Mine has been fun so far. :)
