We stayed in Greenville this past weekend as it was supposed to be really nasty weather and we had a few things to do up here. Scott wanted to work on his vintage tube tester so I cleared all my crafty bits from the little table here at the cottage and gave way for him to use it all day Saturday, He made some good progress but really needs to remember to bring some solder back up from the other house before he can go further on the repairs to  the insides of the unit.

The lighting here is not very conducive to detail work so I have employed several lamps to use over this little table and Scott was glad I had as he really needed them all on on that overcast Saturday.

While he worked on his tube tester I made some Vegetable Beef Soup and it turned out so yummy. I had made enough so we had two meals from it over the weekend and Scott had  the last bowl for part of his lunch on Monday(yesterday). I also made a large salad up for him to eat as well... soup and salad Monday.
On Sunday I got the table back and made up a bunch of cards to mail to friends and family... at least those that I have their addresses for up here. I left my old address book at the house in Cayce so I don't have everyone's address here. I filled the ones I had ready out with a greeting and hello from us and mailed them out yesterday after I made matching envelopes. These are a few that I made... I forgot to take more photos as I was anxious to get them in the mail.

I had made 9 cards all together but these are the only ones I got pictures of. I need to make some more this evening but today really needs to be spent sewing up some gifts for my son's gal and a small canvas tote type bag for Scott's air tools that can hang on the compressor so he can always find them. That will be my first project as I have been promising to do that for some time now.

Well the bed is all ready made but I still have dishes and  the kitchen to clean up before I can get started on the sewing projects. Have a wonderful day!
