This weekend we had lots of rain and wind. The creeks were swollen and so was the Wisconsin river. Notice how the creek meanders. I believe this is where the quilting term came from.
I had to cross the Wisconsin River to get to my thrift store hunt. The little red shack has a sign on it that says, "ole man river". It always makes me smile when I drive this way.
I found the neat circular spelling board at an antique shop but the rest was thrift store finds.
Check out the old curtain clips and what I did with one. I bent it to become a picture holder - or I plan to use them for signs for what food I have before you at the retreat. Son - Cody in school photo (he's 24 now)
This is just one of the interesting things I find when I walk around the retreat. Even the napkins folks bring are unique! Check this out.
I will post some of this weeks retreater's projects tomorrow. Some came as far away as Indiana, Minnesota, Illinois, Massachusetts, and a quiet bunch from Sun Prairie, Wisconsin. by for now, Patsy
