Yet another 90+ degree day here in the metro Detroit area and I see a good portion of the eastern US is a bit toasty, too. At the last minute, I chose to go on vacation this week. Good thing. Who wants to be in a plant in crap like this?
Anyway, today's vacation plans were nothing fancy. Used book stores and thrift shops were the order of the day. That is, until my truck's radiator decided to split in three places. Luckily, a friend's repair shop was right down the street. Two hours and a new radiator later, I was back on the road. I wasn't really too much in the mood to shop after that, but I did stop at a couple places. The best find of the day? This:
The crochet chain stitches are so nice and neat. I love it. I suppose I should give it a wash, but I don't know how old/new it is or what I should use. Anyone suggestions will be greatly appreciated. The owner of the shop I bought it in said she may be getting more tatted items this week from the same estate, so I am going to make another trip in a couple days.
And with this bit of show-and-tell, I am off for the day. A bowl of Edy's Rocky Road ice cream is calling my name... Stay cool people!
