It was a little better today--
got to do some of this---
Had to go to shopping and spread some
as it was Tuesday--it was my friend Anne's day--
we visited for a little while==
then we went to the Quilt shop as I had gotten an email about her having a sale--
so don't get in our way of a "sale"--or you just might get run over!!!
and of course=="Di" found a couple goodies---
these two fabrics where on a half price table--
I have really liked the teal one at the top and have gotten some of it in the past--
but now I have some for in the future!!!
then I have also loved these birds--and remember last summer I got some of this line with the birds in bird cages--???? got 2 yards of this--why?????? but I just know that some day I will be soooo glad I did!!!!
In her sale room I found this bottom piece of fabric for --
are you ready for this????
for $2.oo a yard--so I got what was left--couple yards of it--
then as I was looking around--
I discovered she had 3 different charm packs on sale--
and do you see which one, one of them was???
as I am flipping though the squares to see what the fabrics where like--
there is a 5 inch charm of the $2 fabric--sold---two less charm packs to inventory!!!!
guess I got to check out the extra Schnibbles patterns I got last year and see if one will fit this fabric?????
Ahhh and yes Anne walked out with a bag of fabric toooooo!!!!
Now Anne is a doll lady--
she has worked with and collected dolls for years and years--
and she gave me some info on my new dolly--
I did not realize it --but she was hand made--we believe in 1982 as there is a number on the back of the head that says 82--Anne said she is a very well done doll and well worth the $12 I paid--the lady she knew and made alot of clothes for,-- sold her dolls like this one for $200.00 each back then!!!!
the clothes are probably the ones that was made for the doll, too!!!
I think Anne would of liked to have taken her home!!!!!
but she's mine!!!!
After Anne and I had lunch which we also shared with Miss Gracie--
Lil sister and I went over town--
I paid for a couple more cat ads for our little paper for the SPCA--
then stopped at the yarn shop and found a couple yarns I needed for projects
then to the bank for quarters for laundry and then to the Good Grocery for a couple things--and then home!!! It was about 40 out today and the sun was out--so good day for a little walk!!
then I again spent some time in my sewing chair working on some embroidery pieces--
and I hope I have a couple finishes to show tomorrow--so a watch on this "site" you just never know?????
Hugs, Di and a sleeping miss gracie
