If you don't have a friend who thrills at the site of a garage sale on the way to work in the morning, who also knows you and what you might be interested in, you should get one.
This morning, I added greatly to my collection of wool strips for rug hooking when my friend found about $80 worth of material for me for a double sawbuck. I have been needing some robin egg blues and gourd stem greens and neutrals to add to my collection. Not to mention the prized houndstooth dark and light combination that will add depth and interest to any project.
Thanks Karin for your sharp eye! I sure hope Angie was watching this from the great beyond. She thrilled at the prospect of getting something for a bargain.
Happy Friday Night from Lawrence where the sunset light on the old fashioned Iris was at it's peak when I got home. I have come to enjoy telling you about all the ideas swirling around in my brain that may or may not get done on the weekends. Here is what's on tap for this Mother's Day weekend:
1. farmers market trip
2. go hiking in the flint hills
3. get some sewing time in
4. make an old fashioned coffee cake for Sunday breakfast
5. plant the tomatoes
6. take a nap
If I get 3 of those things done I will call it good.
