Goodwill Shopping


I have been doing a little shopping at Goodwell lately and found some great things!  Some of my pictures won't load onto my blog so I will have to try again -- I found a great kids rocker that I can repaint and a metal aqua colander.  And I did get this wood box that I am going to make into a planter -- I think I will repaint it a fun color and plant some petunia in it --  Always nice to think of Spring on a cold winter day.

I have been buying the girls their toys at the the pet store and then my friend suggested I get some stuffed animals at Goodwill for 50 cents each -- that sure beats $7  - $10 each!   I got Poochie a great green parrot she takes it everywhere and loves to hide it on Patches! 

Patches got a cute reindeer as you can see she is a bit rougher than Poochie and she has some of the stuffing out of it already -- not to worry I have a bag of stuffed toys in the closet  -- I spent a few bucks and got a big bag full.
I have done a little sewing I finished this snowman table topper -- it was a Quick Quilt Saturday project.  I want to
make several more for shows next year.  So I better get moving!

Thanks for stopping by!   What have you been up too?

Happy Stitches!

Happy New Year 2015!

Good Morning!

Happy New Year!  I can't believe it is already Jan 5th!    I was off work for the past 17 days -- it was wonderful!  Spent time in my sewing room, playing with my girls and even took a trip with Dear Hubby to Memphis, had wonderful barbeque and went to see Graceland.  

Now this morning I wake up at 4:30 and it is below zero  ARGGG   -- but I just wanted to say Happy New Year and show a few pictures.

Patches Christmas morning with her  new bone!  

Patches with her tug toy from Kendra over at Stone house Primitives.  

Poochie with her new toy on Christmas morning -- she is such a happy girl!

Now on to Quilting 2015 -- so many people are selecting their "word" for the year -- Mine is going to  be SIMPLIFY -- I have gotten out of some Yahoo Quilting groups -- I love them but there is just way too many emails to go thru and I could better spend my time sewing.    I was also going to do a BOM at the LQS but after I cleaned up my sewing room - I realized I have plenty to work on - so I am going to do Pat Sloans BOM free on line and here is Block 1.  I am going to us up some of my pink and brown fabrics.
I will also continue in the Scnibbles group and Small project group -- and I am in a Quick Quilt projects on Facebook -- but I have cut out a few things so I feel I am doing good!  
I am determined to finish at least 12 UFO's this year -- in face this weekend I quilted up 6 small UFO's not really able to count them all -- since some are just blocks I am converted to table squares -- but I am at least moving them into the finished pile.   I will work on binding them this week as I watch TV at night

Well I need to get ready for work -- have a great day!

Happy Stitches
