Wisconsin Lady Glampers...

Brynwood Needleworks - Holiday Rambler Glamper

I went to see Dad on Monday. He lives about an hour and a half from me, so sometimes I need to stop for fuel. What a delightful surprise to find that I'd pulled into a station where two ladies - sisters - also stopped to top off their tanks.

I saw "Barbara Jean" first. That beautiful turquoise caught my eye as I came around my Explorer to go into the mini mart. I couldn't resist telling the lady who was pulling this colorful package down the road how much I liked it.

I then saw the vintage Frolic™ right behind her, and said something similar to the lady pulling this one. I mentioned how much fun they must have camping in these sweet, little trailers, as I headed into the building.

When I came out, the ladies asked if I'd like to see the interiors and I said I'd love to! I asked if they would mind if I took photographs so you could see, too. They were both so gracious!

I found out that the ladies are sisters, Janet and Jane, and that they (of course) named their campers after beloved family members. The sisters both belong to a group on Facebook (and in real life) called "Wisconsin Lady Glampers". They regularly meet for weekends of camping with like-minded gals, coming from all over the state. Doesn't that sound like fun?

I told them about the Airstream that Handsome and I had for nearly ten years, and that, although we don't have "Aluminati" anymore, I would love to do what they're doing. Janet invited me to join their Facebook group, and I requested membership before I left the parking lot.

Although I don't have a little vintage camper - yet - I'm looking forward to getting to know the Lady Glampers better, and will follow them on their adventures.

After our visiting, and we'd finished filling our vehicles with fuel, we said our goodbyes, and all turned for home. What a delightful end to a nice day. Thanks again, Janet and Jane! Hope to see you down the road some time. Stay safe!

Tuesdays With Tag - Five Weeks Old...

Brynwood Needleworks - Taggart

Hi, Everybody!!

The puppies turned five weeks old yesterday, and I've got pictures for you!!
You're gonna scream, they're so cute.

Brynwood Needleworks - Bella's Five Week Old Puppies

How would you like to be greeted by these mugs first thing every day? Wouldn't you just squeal with delight? Mom said she sure would. Dad saw these pictures and turned into a puddle of mush. Really!

They're lookin' like real dogs now! Their little waxy flaps look like real ears now - even though they're not standin' straight up like mine. They've got long waggers, too, just like their mama. How many different ways are there to say "cute"?

Brynwood Needleworks - That Face!

That little guy is almost as handsome as his Uncle Tag. Look at that face!! He's gonna be a real lady killer.

I'm wonderin' if these guys (and dolls) are part Corgi. Look at 'em belly up to the snack bar. No shy kids here. Keep after it, babies. You need to grow big and strong to wrastle with me!

Brynwood Needleworks - Tag's Gotta Run

I don't know about you, but I just can't stand any more puppy sweetness today. I'm gonna run...
 
I'll see you again in seven. 'til then...

Woolen Strawberry Pincushion...

Brynwood Needleworks - Woolen Strawberry Pincushion
 
I hope you had a restful and peaceful weekend. The weather was lovely here at the farmhouse, and Handsome, Tag and I enjoyed our time together.
 
I mentioned that I'd completed another pincushion for a client last week. This one is already in the mail, on its way to a new home. It measures approximately 4 1/2" x 8 1/2", and is filled with nearly three cups of crushed walnut shells. (I love a pincushion that doesn't scoot around on my work surface!) 
 
Of course, because I make each one by hand - to order - no two are exactly alike. I may change up the stitches, or the colors may vary slightly. I added buillion bars to the center of the blossom for a little more dimension. I'll probably do that again, as I love the look. 

I have a busy week planned. There are fun and no-so-fun things to do, but will approach every task with a glad heart. Being happy helps make the job easier to accomplish, and really, if you have a choice, why not be happy?

We're waiting for new puppy pictures today, so Tag will have them to share with you tomorrow. It won't be long before we get to go see them for ourselves! I hope you'll come back to see how they look at FIVE weeks old!

Have the happiest of days, my friends.
(Can you even believe it's June 1st?)
