Well, like I said on Monday...this is crunch week here at the Stone House. We are getting ready for our annual trip to Ft Bridger for the yearly rendezvous! We camp and laugh and play cards and when the fort opens we go ( wearing our period proper clothing...) and participate in the rendezvous activities! Leslie, you should come and bring your family! Wyo is not too far from PA is it? (smiling )
Today I am sewing DH some drop front knee britches! Out of linen. Hummm. These will be a different kettle of fish for him to wear. Not as heavy of fabric as Wranglers! LOL We play cards with my Mom this afternoon, and I am making traditional taco's for my pot luck dish. Later on I am hoping for time to run to my daughters and help her sew a linen "Robe 'a l' Anglaise a la plolnaise" Why is it that 18th century pattern instructions are almost unrecognizable to read as being English?
I was able to go to a TS is Idaho on our way home from our road trip, and found some fun treasures. I scooped these books up for a dollar each. They are old time life books. They have lots of colonial as well as the more "fluffy" (quoting LBC's word) country look. They have lots of helpful info. I was excited to find them.
Janene showed us her sweet clock this morning and I. AM. SO. IN. LOVE. WITH. IT. I am going to be on the look out for one that I can re-do similar to hers! If you haven't seen it, go have a look see!
Here is a little clock that I picked up at the TS. I think I may have a thing for clocks! lol
Not sure how I'll re-do it yet.
While we were tripping we stayed a night at my Sister's home, and she fed us the most incredible breakfast ever! We had our choice of yummy honey butter, or freshly made from freshly picked, Huckleberry jam , on hot scones, Hash browns, eggs ( for them that likes em) and these beautiful little steaks wrapped in Bacon, hot off the grill! The steaks were Buffalo! Never eaten a Buffalo steak before. It was sooooooo good! (ya, even LBC woofed his down) Thanks Anne! She sent us home with some Huckleberries, and a jar of her highly coveted pickled asparagus! Which we did manage to wait to open until the kids were all at our house. (and I did threaten all of their lives if they didn't save any until their dad got out of the shower....LOL) It goes pretty fast once opened!
See how pretty it looks in the jar!
Just got a reminder call to go tie quilts at the church......so I will most likely not get too much done on the knee britches this morning!
That's how it goes huh! :-D
LBC is loving school, and is signed up to try out for the school play, The Wizard Of Oz. Hope he gets a part. Have a great day and don't forget to visit Leslie
and see what she as everyone is working on this Wednesday!
I had better get a move on it!
