Weekend wrapup


Lichens
We went north for a short visit after I closed the shop on Saturday. Here are my usual photos of nature and stuff.

Trees just starting to turn colors

Dave and I celebrated our 16th wedding anniversary quietly, just sitting on the porch, watching Sunday float by.
Me and my shadow
We motored to the cabin in my new-to-me set of wheels. Getting a new car meant cleaning all the junk out of my 16 year old car.....I am such a pack rat, in the trunk of the old car I found some cotton yarn that I had forgotten. This weekend I turned it into a bag. Lots of different crochet stitches.
Here is the bag in progress. The bag is draped over a cool, vintage case that I got at a garage sale for a dollar.  Interested only in the case, I was surprised to find that it contained an old clarinet!..Anyone know something about clarinets? Should I keep it or toss it?
Here is the finished bag at home
Surprise! I lined it!
Linings are not my thing.

This has been a rambling post, but that was the way the weekend turned out....Rambling and disjointed,but very relaxing.

It wasn't me...lol, but thanks ;). I used to play clarient. Is it wood or plastic? I do know that music repair shops charge a lot to restore instruments. I'm never sure if it's because they just want you to buy or rent one from them or what. It might be kinda neat to decorate with if you have a vintage theme going somewhere.

I forgot to tell you something...that little cloth thing in the clarinet case....we called it a "spit rag" because that's what you use to clean out the, uh, spit...SO don't touch the spit rag, 'k?
