Quick Trip

This past weekend I made a quick trip to Minnesota. I had a great time while I was gone, but it was just too short!!

One of the purposes of my trip was to deliver these beautiful chairs to my brother and his wife.
They had ordered them from the Amish while they were visiting Labor Day weekend. They are still waiting on the table they ordered as well. We have ordered much of our furniture from the Amish. It is some of the most beautiful furniture I have seen.

I also went up to attend a mini scrap booking retreat with some dear friends. We try to get together Fall and Spring to scrap book, but missed this past Fall, so it had been over a year. Here are two of my oldest friends, Renae and Cheryl. (By oldest I mean we go back the furthest.... they are by NO MEANS old. I would say they look like they are in their early 30's, wouldn't you???)

Some actually scrapbooked and even got something done! Go Dawn!!

As for me, I did not even bring my scrap booking stuff with me. I knew I was going just to visit and catch up with my dear friends. I took my knitting (still plugging away on my Noro Scarf) and worked with some digital pictures on the computer. I do love the portability of knitting vs. scrap booking, that is for sure!!!

Steve had a rainy weekend in Iowa with the dogs, but had some good bonding time. He was a little late for church Sunday because his dear wife wasn't here to set the clocks ahead for him. Sure nice to know that I'm needed!!

Until Next Time...

Beautiful chairs! I once went to Lancaster, PA, with my aunts, and the Amish are exellent craftsmen and -women.

It looks like you had lots of fun. At least you had great weather for your weekend. That scarf is getting pretty close to being done. I am making a scarf like that out of handspun instead of Noro.

The table and chairs are beautiful. We live near Amish here in Ohio and have some wonderful pieces as well. I hope to see you at the Loopy Spring Fling again. :)
