Camping at Little Wall Lake.

What a beautiful 4 days we had. BEFORE the heat arrived. We have cancelled our labor day camping because of the heat.As you can see Ziva has a puppy pen. It did not take her long to go over the top but she is ok in there as long as we are outside with her. Of course when her other mother Mikki is around she wants OUT. There was only one bad thing.That was the dust from the road in front of our campers. Will not camp there again unless they oil that road.
Hope u are well.j

Shopping finds.

After the guys got the new doors in the sewing room I did some rearranging and a lot of cleaning.My fabric will never be neat and tidy like some I have seen. I dig around in it to much.But it is all on shelves now and what I can see I use. My tread mill is still in this room.I hope that will be an  incentive to use it.

The new doors are wonderful.They let in a lot of light and it is nice to just sit and watch the birds. We made a small patio out the east side.I added a couple of chairs and some plants.I'll share pictures after I am finished decorating out there.

We had a great 4 days at Little Wall Lake. We went to the antique mall in Story City Ia. I found a few treasures. A tiny walking doll,a nine patch doll quilt,a doll mirror,a pair of wexford candle sticks,a sewing kit,a pair of baby shoes and a God bless America pin. I also got a 3 tired shelf but it is still in the back of the car so no picture yet.

We then went to a new fabric shop in Jewel.Sew bee quilt shop. It was worth the trip. Orange and green fabrics to add to my stash.A sunbonnet Sue stencil.We will be going back there for sure. Have a great week.j
