Oh. My. Goodness. I've been back since Friday, but between unpacking and catching up on real life, this is the first chance I've had to check in with ya'll. LOL
Let me pick up where I left off in my last post.
I had drug my son to three fabric shops, so I let him skip the last one. LOL If you are ever in Williamsburg, Iowa, stop, stop, STOP, at the The Woolen Needle. They have every color of wool you could ever dream of. And if that's not enough, there is a stove with a huge pot in the back. THEY DYE THEIR OWN COLORS!! And fabric? Yes, they have fabric. Loved this shop. And the ladies running the program? They treated me like I visited every week. I stayed an extra 30 minutes just to chat. The building still had the original wooden floors and tin ceiling. It was so beautiful!!
This is just one fourth of the shop!!
I don't remember where I got which fabric, but this is the wool I picked up at the Woolen Needle. Isn't it so pretty? I will use it to back my cross stitch and punch needle. Oh, and they have a website if you need to order on-line, hint, hint. LOL
This is the fabric I collected over my two weeks. What was I thinking? As if I "needed" more fabric. LOL
I spent hours trying to get a perfect picture of a cardinal. This is the best I could do.
Then, just when I had given up...here you go:
I had mentioned the wildlife in my son's neighborhood. This little bunny was checking us out...
The bunnies here look a little like the bunnies out in California, but they are darker and have smaller ears. This little guy had no problem coming within five feet of us. It was all about the grass!!
Soooo.....I finished hubby's scarf and started on the next project. It is a beautiful green/blue yarn...wool, silk, and alpaca. So soft. I didn't really care for the slubs, but Baby Boy said he knew someone that would LOVE the scarf. Wink. Wink. LOL
I finished these three washcloths for my son...cotton.
Then, it was time to say goodbye. We went to our favorite coffee shop. Here is my last mocha. Sigh.
And this was our final vacation picture.
I had a wonderful time. My son is one of my favorite people. He is kind, thoughtful, and loves his mom. I can't ask for more than that.
I hope that everyone has an amazing day. Be kind to one another.
