My Favorite Things

August 10, 2006

I've been stitching a scissor fob for an exchange and finished it yesterday. Once my partner gets it I can post a photo. Last night I wasn't feeling well and was in a lot of pain from a wisdom tooth. I took some strong painkillers and had the worst nightmare. I dreamed I was cutting the fabric and making the stitched piece into a fob and I goofed and cut right through the center of the stitched motif. Of course in my dream it was too late to stitch another one before it had to be mailed. I was so happy to wake up and realize I was dreaming LOL!

In other stitching news I got the best bargain at Goodwill the other day. I try to go to our Goodwill about once a week because they get lots of mystery books from the series I read. That day they had a wooden and glass tray that you can insert a piece of needlework in for $1.99. I have been wishing for one of these for ages and I never thought I would find one for less than around $30. All it needs is to have the glass cleaned and the needlework monagram replaced with something I stitched.

I never thought of checking Goodwill for those frames. What a great deal you got.

What a great find! I know that my SIL likes to hit the thrift store from time to time - once she was able to purchase Longaberger baskets for pennies!
