Farmers' Market and Marvelous Crochet

Dear Ms. Drew - do you go to a Farmer's Market where you live? I caught the Kalispell Saturday Market before going to work today. What are those grain thingies in the background called?

Standards besides plants at NW MT markets are chainsaw carved wooden bears, greasy mini-donuts, soap, bread, flowers...
...and this lovely woman who made all these crochet doilies.... Actually, doily isn't the right word. Maybe works of art would cover it. She gave me her name and now I can't find the piece of paper, but I will.

She showed me thread she gets from Hungary and France. She was most excited about the old tea colored ones she's getting from France.

I just thought she was so great. Maybe someday I can afford one of her works of art - I am going to frame it and hang it on a wall, not put it on the back of a sofa.

Tomorrow is Sunday. I will spend it with the Cupcake girls:

They are never any fun. Love ya, Mary

You know they look just like the coffee filter girls. Amazing how much alike they look.
