Mom: Did you have fun shopping?
Me: We got you the prettiest gift, Mom!
Mom: Oh, and what is it?
Me: Well, I'm not going to tell 'cause it's a secret. But I will say that it is gray. And size 5. And silky on the top. And soft and flowy on the bottom. Oh, and it has a little belt and long-sleeves. And you can wear it to church.
Mom: Hmmmm. Wonder what you got me!?
I just love to share a good find, I suppose!
Having said that--guess what I found at the local thrift store?! Wanna see? Wanna see?
Can you believe my good fortune? Three Pyrex dinner plates, three luncheon plates, and two teacups--for only $6! I looooove the lime green--and the 22kt gold trim--and the condition! Wahoo!
Also found these Pyrex beauties!
Jackpot for Sue!!
Not bad for a little town thrift store, huh? But I don't think any will find their way to my shop. I simply cannot part with them.
I also can't keep my mouth shut when it comes to the fun hooky projects in the works. If only I could focus on one at a time.
Working on a couple of mandala patterns. This was my first. I'm playing with it being used as a pillow cover, stool cover, and wall-hanging.
Below is my granny project to keep my hands busy but not take too much brain power. I'll show you what it is when I finish--but it is NOT a blanket!
And finally, an old shabby chic pink flowery sheet made into yarn--but what will that become? I'm dreaming of a couple of crocheted round rugs for my master bathroom. If it works into what I imagine, I will do a free tutorial.
I know that I promised a post about the Hooker's Club--but you'll have to wait until Thursday for that one.
