March Break - Day 1

I started sewing another Simplicity 3835 top this morning. Even though I KNOW I have some 1/4" elastic around for the neck, I could NOT find it!!!! I dashed out to Fabricland to pick some up and found myself at Value Village (funny how that happens!).

I found this scrappy cabin pillow cover for $1.49. I don't think it was ever used. I happen to have a pillow form for the scrappy cabin pillow I was going to make but never got around to.

I love that it has a prairie point border!

I also scooped some more large buttons to cover which will soon become pendants, I'm sure!

I got home and was all ready to continue sewing when a friend called and wanted to go out and play in the snow with our new cameras, so off I went.

These are a couple of my favourite photos of the day, both taken with my new lens. The rest can be found at my Flickr page.

I wonder what Day 2 will bring?

I am working on a top now and I am missing that same elastic. I guess a Walmart trip is in order. Bummer!

Your photos are great! The new lens is a winner!

i love the colors in that picture of the lighthouse! did you photoshop or are they "true" colors?

isn't it amazing the gravitational pull a thrift store carries?

Regina said...

Great find! Such a pretty pillow! And your photos are so pretty!

What an awesome find that pillow was. The car probably has a homing devise in place for VV :)

I miss the water!
