Stitch Marker's Received!!

Gosh, I have been so darn busy lately that I have not had time to post about all the fun fun stitch marker exchanges I have received. I had taken these photos prior to X-Mas and am too tired/lazy (have been painting all day 10hrs) to go upstairs and look at the envelopes.

Sorry Ladies, I will have to update this post at a later time to give you credit:) Oh, forgot to mention that I got a fab 'Angel' puffie from Maile. I loved it and will post a pic once I have a chance.

Vegas Vacation...

Well, here are a few shots from our 'Vegas Vacation 2006'. We did a bit of gambling, but really prefer to drive about finding new out of the way places we have not seen before;) This first shot is in Death Valley.

This is another shot in Death Valley. I had to walk out behind a big mound of sand & stone to find this pic. The white on the valley floor is not snow. Can you guess what it is?

Here is a close up of the white 'stuff'. It is actually Borax. From what I can gather the pioneering desert folk would mine the flakes seen here off the valley floor in the winter because it is in a solid state at lower temperatures. Then the raw borax would be processed and shipped via a 20 Mule Team out of the desert.

And well, it just would not be complete with out a pic of Bill just done flying his rc plane in Death Valley.

Other Fun Facts..................

I taught myself to knit by watching a woman while on a flight from Scotland to the USA in 1996.

I taught myself how to spin yarn Feb 15th, 2007. I think I've done fairly well:)

'Lunabud' is a combination of two dogs' names I was loved by, Buddy and Luna:)
