 Have to say--I am so glad today is Sunday--and that I can take it slow and easy today--

Been a busy week with '3' outings again--So where do I begin???

Got '2' more blocks all done for this months blocks from 'the book'--

the first one is a cone flower in all applique--

the second one is a basket block done by sewing machine--

the third one is not finished--it is a paper piecing one and I did get 8-9 sections all paper pieced--but ran out of time to sew them into the block-that's on tomorrows list!!

And I did get some tracing done for embroidery work--the 4th block for this month is all embroidery and then 2 small blocks from Jenny's bom--and one of those is finished just have the little flowers to embroider on the second block and it will be finished and I will get photos for you!!

My first adventure this week was on Wednesday--I first walked over to the Molly Mutt's thrift store --they were having a 50% off sale--I really did not find much there--but did come home with this--
which I love--so dainty looking--

and a couple old linens for a new quilt that starts May 1st--I also stopped into the new plant store I told you about that is 2 doors before the thrift store--it's a neat store and has lots of house plants, and planters and you can even plant your plant there in a planter--they have work tables and dirt for you--a baby spider plant and an air fern did come home with me(this trip)!!

Thursday I got some mail--

the new camera came in--this one is smaller than my other hand held one--and the button to turn it on and off is really small--but is works nice--soooo---

I had also ordered '2' new disc's --one for this camera and one for the big Cannon camera and those came in the same sized box--I also always order a second rechargeable battery--it came the next day--in this box--

do you see how large this box is--(the camera also came in the same sized box--)
and this is the size of the new battery--


On Friday my friend Carolyn and I went 'thrifting'--me looking for vintage hankies, and small towels for the new project in May--we went to 2 good sized thrift stores before lunch--one was called an Antique Mall and it had lots of small stalls in it--did find 6-7 items there--that hopefully will work--then lunch at McDonalds--outside in the car!!!  then on to a third big thrift store--there I bought another basket-a Pyrex baking dish and another plate--

Bet you all know why I bought this plate-and would  you believe it was only 99cents????

After wearing the mask for 3-4 hours I am done and need to come home and I knew Carolyn was really getting tired--remember she is my friend on oxygen 24/7 and at stage 4 of COPD--so it won't be much longer that she will be able to get out and about!!!   We did have a good time and some laughs!

Saturday--afternoon late, my son, Dan and his gf Sarah took me to the Dollar Tree ( I was totally out of pens) and then to Publix for my monthly shopping for groceries--it as hot and humid--even Publix was warm--usually it is nice and cool in there--but I got food, so guess that is all that counts!!!

And here is where I 'was' on the Counted Cross stitching yesterday--

This morning I did get started on filling in Block 6--there on the left!!!

Well guess this is enough 'gabbing' for one post--




  1. Lovely finds, Di! I'm glad you are so busy with all your sewing projects. I have misplaced my "mojo" a long while ago and just can't seem to find it. :-(
