Don and I drove down to Des Moines, Iowa a few weeks ago to attend the Iowa State Fair with some of his relatives. We stayed with his cousin Sherry, who IS the Hostess Supreme! Staying with her is like staying at a 5 star bed and breakfast.....LITERALLY!
When I heard that our plans were finalized and we were staying with Sherry, I immediately began knitting hostess gifts for her. This sequence of photos is her opening them. :)
What a surprise, eh? A pair of knitted socks from my circular sock machine!
Here she is modeling her custom knitted CMS socks. She did this automatically, too, with no prompting from either of us! :)
Her new felted Market Bag!
Hopefully Sherry will find many, many uses for using her new bag.
We also took her a loaf of home baked sourdough bread, too. And not to forget her pups, Lucy and Corky, we took them home baked chicken/cheese sourdough dog treats. They went over quite well. ;)
Tomorrow.......the family gathering.
