craft show on the island

strange flower mom found in her garden.

we figure it was a bulb plant. also in one of the geranium hanging baskets was a bird nest. we started pulling out the weeds and that's when she found the nest along with eggs. she put them back in and will keep an eye on it.

eddie's pumpkin,

only 100 pounds.

should be close to

1000 pounds by

time of judging and picking.

house took 4 years

to build. i's on the

edge of a cliff.

for the most part the weekend on the island was great. the transportation gettting to and leaving the island leaves something to be desired in the middle of summer-using the winter ferry. what was to be a 20 min ride ended up being close to 2 hours travel with the wait time.

the craft show : with only 5 vendors there was slim pickings. not many brought money to buy things, they were more interested in yard sale items, vs brand new handmade items.

i did sell the pig and monkey child hats, a pair of fun fur flip lops and an infant knit hat, scarf and mittens set.
lot of people but the had too many other activities planned for that day.
blueberry picking was at 9am-start of craft show and south end had a bbq at 11am for anybody who wanted to go. craft show ran from 9-11 and with ferry problems they had to run 2 boats per scheduled run.
new project i plan to start today will be the snsettter fish. we put up mms sunsetter on sunday and she hung the cloth fish from the edges. i figure with the plastic bags i have, bright orange, yellow, blue and green i can make a pretty neat looking fish to hand along with its fin. gonna be fun to do this and probably won't take too long.
can't wait for susan to bring yarn over to me for soldiers hats.
