Be still my beating heart! - I was so surprised and thrilled with all the visitors I had come to "The Shed".
I want to thank each and every one of you, who took time out of your busy day to come and visit with me. Your comments warmed my heart and were so greatly appreciated.
The 25th happened to be my birthday, and Sir Knight and I always head out to Bristol Wisconsin, for the Bristol Renaissance Faire. Haven't missed it in 7 years now. We both enjoy our time spent there in the 16th century - rubbing shoulders with Good Queen Bess, members of her court, and brave knights at the Joust.
We left a little later on Friday than Sir Knight would have liked - because I just had to visit a few of the wonderful studios before we left - but he took it in his stride. Our reservations at the Motel were checked and double checked to make sure that they had internet access so that I would not miss too much of the fun and merriment of this blog party. I did experience some difficulty leaving messages for some of you. I would type it all out list that I had a google account and poof - nothing - it never posted, never did anything but sit there on my computer. I presumed there was something wrong with my laptop - so I even tried it on the motels computer and still nothing. I tried again when I got home late Sunday and it was the same thing. So if you came and visited me and I appear to be totally lacking in social good graces and have not replied to you, I do apologize. I did try. I even tried to send a few of you an e-mail. Just not sure if you received them or if they went into your junk folder.
Once again I want to thank each and every one of you for the visit and the kind words.
This morning I went to a few Garage Sales and although it was not a real prosperous day I did find a few doilies that I liked - so I brought them home, washed them up and then applied Heavy starch to them so they hold up for the little project I had in mind.
I had small heart shaped and small round doilies in both white and cream. Cut my pipe cleaners down to wrap around the doily and make antenna. On the large doily I used a 6 inch piece and on the smaller ones I used a 3 inch pipe cleaner
This project idea has been around for quite some time but just in case you haven't seen it done -I had Sir Knight shoot a few pictures as I was making them to sort of give you an idea. I fan folded the middle of the doily.
