I don't have much to share today.. I am tired.. It takes a lot out of me caring for my hubby, the 6 kids and having him home alllll the time. I am looking forward to him being able to go back to the office so we can establish a schedule again.
I did get to go thrifting yesterday while hubby was at the dr's. I found a mini quilt in mint condition, handmade, with embroidered cats in the center.. it is lovely- I will get a pic up soon. I got it for 50 cents! I found a wee bit of fabric.. a skirt for my daughter that she doesn't like- oh well- I love it- I will save it for when I have lost some weight. I stopped at our small thrift store today and found the book Emma by Jane Austen, a vintage picture and 2 whole bags of clothes (some to wear and some to use as fabric or to unravel for the yarn- including a silk skirt and a silk cashmere sweater) for $6!!
I am still working on my mini quilt. I am committed to hand sewing the whole thing. Ronna is coming by tomorrow with a box of quilting supplies and a bobbin winder so I can use my machine again (the bobbin winder had died). Yay! I can't wait. I have several quilting projects in my head. I am going to be doing random squares to educate myself in quilting for one.. the other is another mini quilt for a swap I am in.
I leave you with some inspiring pictures.. I just love flickr.. My only wish- that more people would leave their blog address along with their pics so I can put that info in with pictures I share..
