When we’re up to our eyeballs in stressful house things and this rental property is driving me loopy and it’s raining and etc etc etc it’s things like this that really help me get through.Yay for the little things!
I got the basket and the 8 bias tapes in it for $15- all I had on me. The basket was originally $20 but it had been there a while so they dropped the price to $12 as thats all I could spare. The floss in the basket? There was a street fair on and a lady was selling bundles of 20 DMC skeins for $3. I got 3 bundles for $8.50 – again all I had on me. A skein of DMC costs $1.60+ here so I got $96 of floss for $8.50! Does anyone know what happened to DMC 67, 91 and 93? They are all variegated blues and they aren’t on my checklist. Are they so old they got cancelled?
These crochet and embroidery cottons were from Dave’s mothers stuff that he bought home for me. They are beautiful but theres one problem. She was a very heavy smoker indoors so they stink. I have to put them in a bag of kitty litter to try draw out the smell. Hopefully the smell will fade because they are beautiful.
And this is my favourite. Dave’s childhood train set – or part of it. I wish he had found more, it’s adorable.
And still more: I received this from Lisa of Little Acorn today. I sent her a wool felt rattle ball for the little person she and her husband are adopting and she sent me the baby vest for our future baby. She also surprised me with the sweetest bib ever. Check out how perfectly straight that ric rac is! Thank you Lisa!
