WHAT A DAY… WHAT A DAY… MORE FUN !!

WELL THIS WAS ANOTHER “ ROAD TRIP” DAY AND WHAT FUN

STARTED OUT GOING TO SOUTH BEND GOODWILL AND IT WAS SORTA  A “DUDD”

THEN ON TO  GRANGER GOODWILL AND IT WAS MUCH BETTER/

BOY DID WE EVER GET “ STUFF”

NET GOT THE CUTEST APRON AND IS STILL WEARING IT.

SHE WON’T TAKE IT OFF LONG ENOUGH FOR ME TO GET A PATTERN FROM IT.

CAME HOME AND STOPPED TO GET SOME OF THE COLONELS CRISPY CHICKEN.

TOOK TIME TO EAT A BITE AND THEN WENT TO JUST LOOK AT A SEWING MACHINE

THAT ONE OF HER CLEANING LADIES HAD FOR SALE AND OF COURSE WE

ENDED UP BUYING IT FOR NET.. SHE DON’T KNOW DIDDLY ABOUT SEWING…. BUT SHE’S GONNA LEARN.

WHEN SHE TOLD HER HUSBAND SHE WAS GONNA LEARN TO SEW….

HIS RESPONSE WAS..” HA HA HA HA HA”

BUT SHE WILL SHOW HIM….. ONE DAY !1

 

I’M WAITING ON SOME PATTERNS ORDERED FROM MAUREEN MILLS THROUGH EBAY

AND PATTERNMART AND THEY ARE SO SLOW COMING.

WE HAVE A CRAFT SHOW COMING UP ON MARCH 3rd AND I WANT TO MAKE

SOME FUR BEARS….. WHEN I GET THE PATTERN.

 

I BOUGHT THE CUTEST WOODEN BUNNY AT ONE OF THE GOODWILLS.

I SLAPPED MY HAND TO KEEP FROM BUYING BAKING DISHES.

I’M ADDICTED TO BAKING DISHES.  BUT GOT ENOUGH.

 

IT STARTED REALLY LIGHT SNOW EARLY THIS MORNING

BUT BY THE TIME WE WERE READY TO LEAVE, IT HAD STOPPED

AND THE SUN WAS OUT…. TURNED OUT TO BE A BEAUTIFUL DAY..

WE WENT TO HOBBY LOBBY TO GET SOME FABRIC FOR TOTES

BUT THEIR FABRIC IS ‘ OUT OF SIGHT” HIGH .SO WE WOUND UP

BUYING SOME READY MADE TOTES AND ARE GONNA DECORATE THEM UP WITH BUTTONS & STUFF

ONE GOODWILL STORE IN GRANGER, INDIANA HAS MOVED A FEW SPACES AND ENLARGED

IT WAS VERY NEAT AND HAD 25% OFF TODAY.

 

I HAVE MADE A FEW NEW DOLLS. ONE ON A STRIPED TICKING PILOW STUFFED WITH SAWDUST

AND TIED WITH JUTE.  MADE ONE FROM AN  ANNIE ROSE PATTERN WITH TONS OF HAIR

A DRESS, RUFFLED APRON AND PANTALOONS… 

BLACK BALLERINA SHOES AND STRIPED PAINTED STOCKINGS.
