Today was a "go to Salvation Army Store" kind of day. I am not sure why I was so determined to go.. but when I got there, all clothes were 50% off! Now to just find some useful items. Well I got this chocolate brown corduroy skirt and little orange and yellow flower skirt. The corduroy skirt will be transformed into a skirt for Emma. I will use the ruffle trim from the orange skirt for a ruffle on the corduroy skirt and use some of the other fabric for pockets... what is leftover will be made into a purse for Emma. Ever since I saw this post on Angry Chicken I have wanted to make a cute skirt for Emma. The kind she can wear with funky striped tights and clogs : ) Both skirts were $1 a piece. I also found a Banana Republic 100% Merino Wool skirt...camel... it has now been felted! I will have to take a picture when I am finished with it. It was $2. So, all in all, a good day at the Salvation Army. Then, on to more pressing matters... getting my groups baskets ready for the United Way silent auction we are having at work. We have two baskets... One is "A tisket, a tasket, a little knitting basket" and the other is "Dinner for Two in a basket". The knitting basket is self explanatory, but the dinner for two is cool. It is... two bowls, two mugs, two gourmet soup mixes,
oven bread mix, gourmet salad dressing, Starbucks coffee, hot pad, 3 kitchen towels, a crochet dishtowel, 2 Laura Ashley place mats, 2 Laura Ashley napkins and a gift certificate for Marie Calenders for a pie. I think there is more than that, but I cannot remember right now... LOL too tired.
Emma has a BAD cold and the past two nights have been not a lot of sleep since she is restless and stopped up... hopefully we will get some good sleep tonight..
