Our magical bloggy bus has been cleaned nicely, and the on-board kitchen is restocked for our trip back to the Midwest. We have an on-board chef this time (he sort of looks like Bobby Flay, but he isn't...unless you want to pretend he is! Go ahead...this is ALL make believe!)
So we're tooling along, talking, crocheting, listening to Ella Fitzgerald on the bus's state-of-the-art sound system...and the time just flies by the time we reach...
Wisconsin! Magda's creations are so adorable it almost makes me sorry I sold all my stamps and carving tools a few years ago. (Hey, I'm supposed to be sorta frugal...something had to go, and it wasn't going to be the fabric or scrapbooks!) There are some nice tutorials here and a sweet little bird pattern to embroider or use in other ways. http://www.craftpudding.com/
I admit I have to look at a map to see what's near what...but it looks like a quick hop over to Illinois and "Sunny Pond Home." I love Kristi's little sewing projects, and she has a nice Etsy shop, too! Here's her blog address: http://sunnypondhome.blogspot.com/
Lastly, today, we hit Indiana and "My Heart is Always Home." http://myheartisalwayshome.blogspot.com/Today, Wendi made sidewalk paint to share with her adorable daughter, Megan. There's a recipe, too! And please scroll down to see her "Star Spangled Mason Jars." They are awesome!
My cat just walked in front of the computer and stepped on the phone. Before she dials Moscow, I'd better see if she has food and water in her dish! See ya next time, folks!
