Yosemite Postcards, Outdoor campfire on Quilted Runner- embroidered

I am working on a table runner to put in our RV, I am going to embroider different camping scenes on 4 or 5 blocks.  Here is the campfire yet to be finished.
 Here is part of the runner with decorative squares, (notice tent at bottom) with more plain ones.  I displayed 3 Yosemite National Park Postcards (California). The additional tent is an old well used coaster.
so called from the breadth of the sheet in time of wind and melting snows, makes a leap of 630 feet and tumbles over 300 feet of additional cascade.
Embroider designs from Sublime Stitching.

Flea Market Finds - October is the month for boutiques, craft shows, and yard sales

Went to a local flea market today and found 15 children's books in varying condition.  Such fun as I also found some jewelry (one corocraft pin) some presto postcards and a cookbook from Bloomington Il (1950)  Will probably be listing on eBay. The presto postcards adapt a photograph into a POSTCARD.
