Cleaning the basement this past weekend, with the help of daughter #1, I finally unearthed this trunk, that has been residing behind the furnace for way too long.
It definitely has character, and I have a plan for it.
Of course, first off it has to be stripped.
But I think it will make a perfect coffee table.
And I can store my knitting inside.
In a box, behind the paint stash, there were these dishes. The newspaper they were wrapped in was dated 1991.
They aren't worth much monetarily, but I like them.
On a business note, I told you that I sold the HTBS looper loom last summer, so I no longer have them. But as circumstance would have it, I still have the LOOPERS. I am taking a different approach to them though. Lois and I are done with spending all our time handling them. So we aren't sorting them, mixing the colors up, NOPE, none of that. I am sending them out to my "looper lady" to be cleaned of all the strings and such, and when they come back, we are packing them in 5 lb bags just the way they are, and selling them for $29.95. As soon as I have 100 lbs, I am sending out a newsletter, to let all the looper lovers on my contact list know that I have them, and to let them know what colors are predominant in this batch.
And I will mention it briefly here.....as in I currently have 10 bags 5 lbs each, predominantly bright blue/turquoise.
And that's all I have to say about that.
There's nothing like a couple of warm loaves of English muffin bread on a cold wintry day.
Now for a message from Sydney.
"I don't like change. At. All."
"I'm talking to you, Lois."
