flowers, craft show

our trip to prudence where my mom lives:

big condo from weyhauser building on mainland. penthouse goes for 10million, it's sold.

my first gladioli this summer. its so tall and straight. gotta remember to chop stem down after it turns yellow so nutrients have made it back into bulb for next year.

big yacht docked at harbor

moms strange yellow flowers

craft show went well, $37 and table cost $20, even the lady selling blueberries, jam and pie/cake didnt sell out this year. we sold minimal items and hope october show has a lot better turnout. it was over 90 with 85% humidity. we were dripping wet just after seting up the table. the things that did sell were: crocheted sea shells, knit/crochet facecloths (4 of them) 4 pairs of socks made with self striping yarns, pillows showing lighthouses on them (quilted), light blue baby sailboat sweater, from debbie macombers site and one seashell pencil holder. surprised funfur flipflops didn even get but a glance from one person. moms bulky weigh aran coat swater (woman actually tried it on!) quilted poholders sold but they always do. my portfolio was on top of 2 afghans and one woman looked through it as she knows i do some work for knit picks. actually working on last of their projects and should have that done this week. one half of it is done allready. we were exhausted by saturday afternoon and had greg put AC on for when we got home. unloaded truck on sunday it was just that hot. took our nightly walk and got some good pictures of scenery.
watched postman saturday night and saw dam in washington that we travel near on our way to mt. rainier.
relaxing weekend after the craft show was over and done with. we had left coasters and hair scrunchies at other house or those mighve sold. put them in spare bedroom til then so we wont forget to bring them. dropping down to one table in october. so only half the items will come with us. some wanted to see hat/scarf/mittens sets so we need to get a few of them made up also.
