Friday Find and Fotos!


I am still working on my stitcheries, slow going lately, but they will get done;) Getting ready to go camping is taking up my time this week. I am stocking up with light weight items to keep the weight down and paper plates do not have to be washed;)

While we were looking for a rug at the home store, I found a fun item in the sale rack. I loved the painted wood design and the etching, had no idea what it was, but it was happy and only five dollars. Bill thought it was a chalk board sign, but I looked it up and it is a magnetic house sign. I guess it came with magnetic numbers but none with mine, thus the five dollar price tag. But I still love it and I think I will look for some fun magnetic letters to use with it and put it in my new room.


Camping brings back a lot of memories for me, especially at Burlingame, our state park. People come from all over to go there, so it is harder to get in now. It is a nice campground, has a beautiful lake to swim in and close the all the area beaches.

We went there when I was a child, all 8 of us. As you can see, I am wearing a summer outfit, not sure if that was my suit or clothing. My mom would dress me after we went swimming and I would run back into the water to swim with my brothers and sisters, I loved the water.


We took out kids there, they loved camping too. Bill usually does the cooking when we camp.


And as you can see, they loved the water too. We will be going for 4 days on Sunday, so I may be gone till then or back early, not sure if I will like being alone at the camp when Bill goes to work, so we shall see how it goes. No electricity so we will be on battery power for lights and no internet, but I will bring projects to work on and my art supplies so maybe I can relax and do some new designs. I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend.

Have fun, enjoy the quiet time to get projects done. Hope it's not too hot, but then you can always cool off in the water.

Nice family pics. You may be surprised and totally enjoy getting away by yourself with your handiwork and away from the technology for a while.

Burlingame is about 1/2 hour away from where I live. My husband worked there for 5-6 years. My sister and her family spent a week there every summer when her kids were little. Now they are grown she just spent a week there with her son and his family. Nice times. I hope you enjoy yourself.

The Thedora design is a sweet one. I have so many embroidery patterns to do that I will just enjoy seeing the ones that you do.
