Back again, new stitching and an estate sale

Sorry, I haven't posted in some time. Our grandson got sick with the dreaded flu so he was under our care for about a week with no school. Poor guy had a fever, chills, muscle aches and slept most of last week away. The doctor said to keep  him out of school. He's much better now and back to himself. lively and smiling again.
His daddy took him out on the weekend to a fire station. The firemen were so nice and gave them a tour. Does he look cute in his uniform?

While he was sleeping, I was stitching and finished a few things that I will be putting in my Etsy shop very soon. I made alot of floral cards and am working on this hanging. Its almost done and much further along then the photo. I'm going to frame in the hoop.

I really like the Urban Threads site so many cute patterns..here is another one I stitched and have hanging in our kitchen.

This pattern also has one for dogs which I intend on stitching too. These are all hand stitched by the way.

I also worked and opened my other Etsy shop, The Chinalake Shop and have been listing so far some vintage cooky cutters, and old cookbooks.
We went to an estate sale this last weekend just for fun and found these darling little baskets. For some reason I just love them.
So hand for storing buttons, thread, stamps, etc.

What is neat is that the smaller one in the front, fits insdie the larger one. These are very small and cute stacked for decoration too. I don't know how old they are but the colored one reminds me of trivets and stuff that was made in the 70s so they  might be that old

We also got our cats a new scratching  post.They love it!
