KVMC School Sale

On Saturday Patrick & I went to the annual Kootenai Valley Mennonite Church School Sale. All items are donated by folks who attend the church and each year there are new and different crafts and furniture. (I made 4 sock monkeys & a little sock boy for the sale. I was excited to see that they sold quickly.) We sure look forward to attending this sale every year not only to look at & buy cool handmade items, but also for the yummy pies and other goodies. It’s also a good place to visit with friends since breakfast and lunch are available (for a very reasonable price) and there is plenty of seating in the cafeteria. I didn’t think to bring my camera until several hours after the sale opened, so missed out on pictures of some fabulous bookshelves, a full bedroom suite and tables full of pies, breads and jams. Outside some men were making apple butter in a large caldron --- which takes hours of stirring. AND, there were free buggy rides too! I went for a buggy ride while Patrick took Baby Rocket Dog out of the car for a little walk.

Patrick & I drove around to all the different craft sales going on. Then, we went home and left off Baby and picked up Hootie and hiked around the State forrest to look for a Christmas tree. No luck there. I want a fluffy tree like a Doug Fir or Blue Spruce, so will probably end up buying one.
The 2 pictures at the top here are of Hootie & me at Smith Lake.It's state forrest land.

What a great way to spend a day. Sounds like fun! Your sock monkeys brought back a memory for me. My grandmother used to make sock monkeys all the time. Seems like every time we visited her she'd have several of them sitting about on the kitchen table or counter tops. :)

Happy Thanksgiving to you, Cassie.

Jen ~ I emailed you back. Yes, plenty of trees, but they weren't fluffy enough!

Dorothy,Michele,Shelly & Daisy ~ Glad you all liked the monks. It is fun making them up to a point...Then I kind of get sick of looking a money in the eye! I told everyone I only made four because I didn't want to saturate the market. Ha! Michele, my pie was pecan & also vanilla custard. Oh were they good. I had to eat Pat's piece, since he has diabetes.:<)
