Mom and Lyle visited this summer
and I took these pics of him
with the orange seedlings:
Now that these sprouts are about 4 or 5 in tall, what am I going to do with them?
I called our local high school and asked for the name of their science teacher that handles any type of horticulture class. They passed me on to Amy Theilman who said she would very gladly accept the orange tree seedlings. We arranged a time to meet over at the high school and drop off the plants so she could transplant them into larger containers and grow them in the school's greenhouse
She will now try to grow the seedlings into full grown orange trees and hopefully the students will learn something along the way. It would be wonderful to get a call years from now and say that the trees are bearing fruit and come eat an orange???
Nuff said on that.

I looked around her website and ordered a couple panels of some of her coffee themed prints, and some coordinating fabrics to blend with them....
It was sooo much fun to pick out the fabrics by messenger and have Teresa coordinate them for me and cut them and now she will ship them out to me.
I already have a pattern in mind. I think it would be a cute cuddly quilt on a rainy day, sipping coffee and feeling warm inside and out.
The 2 grandsons helped Steve assemble it last month.
Then they helped me scrub it all down good!
I was debating if I should repaint it all with the original blue. It would look fresh and crisp, but then I decided to keep it as original as possible. If someone wants to buy it and repaint it themselves, they are welcome to do it.
I will post it for sale once it is in operating condition.
Stay tuned if you are looking for a good solid rug loom.
Here it is already Friday, and the weekend promises to be some pretty nice warm weather here in Wisconsin ... above-normal temperatures in the 70s. I want to get this loom finished up.
Steve is going to do some work at the Calumet County Historical Museum and we picked up some lumber this week so he can jump on it right away tomorrow morning. Got to get it done before the temperatures turn cold in the snow starts to fly he said.
In a way, I'm kind of looking forward to Winter.
We don't know if we're going south this winter
or out to the desert this winter
or staying home???
