Ok so Wednesday it was 84 and now it’s snowing. Ugh. It’s actually sticking to the ground, too.
I’m still feeling kind of crappy, but I did go to Joann’s and the thrift store yesterday. Here’s what I got:

Joann’s Purchase

Yep, I had to go and buy some Cotton Ease. It was regular price (except for one skein which I used a coupon on), and it’s the Candy Blue colorway. The fabric scraps were 66% off, so I bought a few of those as well. The denim is enough for 3 or 4 pillows and was only $1-$1.50 (there are two remnants), and the striped may become a needle holder or other pouch– it’s canvas. I’m not sure what I’ll use the 1 yard of pink fleece for, but it matches some printed fleece fabric I already have.

Thrift Store Purchase

Yes, I bought a Bedazzler. Tee hee- it was only $3, and it’s brand new so how could I pass it up? I may try to add some “dazzle” to a felted purse in the future. I also bought a deck of Brainquest cards– these are FABULOUS for substitute teachers. They’re especially great when you don’t have enough time to read a story, but there’s too much time to just sit there, particularly at the end of the day or before lunch. I have all the grade level sets between 2nd and 7th grade (other thrift store and Ebay purchases), and these will be a great addition to my collection for $1.99.

And here’s a close-up of my other purchase, for 39 cents! It’s so retro, but there’s only 2 patterns– a horrible bonnet and a pair of TV slippers. It’s hilarious, there was no way I could pass it up. It was printed in 1968.

Close-up of Book

Ok, I’m going back to the marathon of Nashville Star, and Season 4 of Sex and the City on dvd. We did watch Meet the Fockers last night; it was hilarious. I’m still plugging away on Sitcom Chic. I’m thinking of making it short-sleeved, but we’ll see. Has anyone attempted that?
