Cool! I have to charge up the camera while I'm at work so I can find 7 things to share...thank you, Margie! (You are so sweet.)
You read my mind about the yarn! Cables are part of the plan.
Can't wait to see more photos of your weekend outing. Have fun!

Deborah said...

Oops! I forgot to tell you I showed off my bag and yarn yesterday at the shop. Carol and I taught a felting class and had such fun. I used my new bag for my felting materials.

Vee said...

That sounds like a fun meme...I may give it a whirl sometime this week. I learned lots of new things about you!

Vee said...

Forgot to say that I love those baskets! Amazing job you do.

thank you Margie for this sweet award. I have a vintage frame just like that one that will soon go in the shop. I will have to put on my thinking cap to come up with 7 things about me to share. :) Can't wait to see your Saturday photos. xo Lynn

Something White said...

Always interesting to read some more personal things about someone! Some years ago I had a possibility to join in for a workshop ´basket-making´, but finally I didn´t do so. And I´ve some regrets of course :)
Your picnic-days with your husband and walking through the mountains sound very good as well!
Many thanks for your congratulations on our weddingday; we met in the ´Bourgogne´-area and you? :)
Love, Marjolijn

Oh love this post. Love all that colourful wool, so pretty and cosy! How clever of you to make those baskets. Must be a very satisfying pasttime.

I stopped eating red meat when I was 17, if I had any over the next few years it always made me ill. A couple of years ago I tried some beef at my sis's engagement party. And I was fine. So I do now occaisionally eat some. Dont like pork and absolutly detest lamb! weird what your taste are arent they!

Have a lovely week.


Les Cotrions said...

Congratulations my friend on your award!!! Really you are a basket maker??? Oh I'd like to learn to do it too! It's difficult to find handmade baskets now...and they're very expensive!Is it difficult to learn???
I'm looking forward to see your new photos!
Big hugs and have a nice new week!

Vicki Lane said...

Lovely baskets -- I have a friend who grows her own willow and makes some very like.

Mummy Boo Bear said...
