Go shopping yesterday or today on Black Friday???
Did you start out all excited cause you planned to--
save alot on those big specials????
or did the scene look like this----
madness and mayhem????

Did you have a set amount to spend??
Did you take some help with you???
and did you finish your shopping today???
and now all that is left is the gift wrapping????

Or  do you feel like at the end of the day--
you wasted your time and money--cause you spent more than you planned on --
cause of all the other bargains you found along the way?????

This is how I did my shopping today--
and I did find some---
sales on a couple things that I had been looking at--
but didn't want to pay the regular price--
and on a couple orders I got an overall discount and free shipping!!!
So that makes me a happy camper tonight!!!

so how did you fare????????

What is the difference between a pirate--
and a cranberry farmer???????

***A pirate buries his treasure, but a cranberry farmer 'treasures' his berries!!!

What sound does a limping turkey make?????

*****Wobble Wobble wobble!!!!

What 'key' has legs and can not open  doors?????

*****A turkey!!!!!
Have a fun week--

I would like to think that I am feeling some better--
after so many months of not feeling good!!!
I finally got some things hemmed yesterday--
OH--does mending count as sewing????
I had 2 winter night gowns that where too long--
they are just the right size now!!!
and I had some pants that have been  waiting on me to shorten for ever and ever!!!

My problem is the days go too fast--
I just get a little done and it is time to stop and eat a meal--
and then it takes me some time to get going again!!!
but--at least now most of the time,
I can get myself going!!!

And I did take  a picture of a quilt that my friend Anne is --
ah--was working on--
here is the front--really easy and a great way to use up all those Christmas print scraps--
and here is the back--
I love this print--it is an older one--so it is probably no longer available!!!

Miss gracie is fine--
I have been doing some knitting too--
dishcloth's for gifts and some smaller ones for myself!!!

Is everyone getting ready for the holiday--
have you started your shopping yet?????

I actually went over town on Saturday--
at the Country shop--
this little 'bit' of winter followed me home--
and a few other things--but they are all gifts!!!!

Then I went on to the Quilt shop--
and the neatess thing happened while I was there--
remember the posts about the stolen scissors and then going to the Quilt shop and
getting an envelope with my name on it and inside was a new pair?????
I met the lady who so lovingly gave me those new scissors and she is one of my readers
from Copperstown--a good hour or more drive from here--
Now how cool is that--????
and yes--I came home with some goodies--
yep--more fabric!!!
I must be in a chickadee mood---!!!
Wonder what miss gracie will make with these?????

and here is a photo I took on the way over town--
And today I went shopping for a new Christmas tree--
ended up getting a 'pencil' tree and 3 new stings of a new style of lights!!!!
so it looks like miss gracie will get her first Christmas tree this year!!!!

and I may be in trouble--
On Tuesday when Anne came to quilt--we went to the Dollar General and I got some
kitty litter, dry food, and canned food for the Humane Society--and as there was a car
there, we just stopped and dropped it off==and yes,, I had to look at the kitties--
and they have some all black kittens and some all black adult cats--
I keep asking miss gracie what she wants for Christmas--a kitten or a cat?????????
hugs, di and miss gracie

for some of my neighbors--
Kevin and his dog, Norman!!!
Helen has changed her hair color--green, Marie and her hubby Lennie!!
I love those hot pink slippers with the black polka dots!!!
And my goodness--who is this character??????
she really had everyone guessing for most of the evening--
turns out it is Jill!!!

and our building is getting a new look--
we have dark burgundy shutters now--these are only going on the front side--
and yes--my windows will get them as I live on the front side!!!!

Hope you all had fun seeing Oct 31, 2013 end with lots of 'treats'!!!
hugs, di and miss gracie
