thift store score!

It was a weekend of relatively no crafting, no new sewing projects, no cleaning and not even laundry, if I do tell on myself!  But I did treat myself to a trip to Pat Catans and the thrift store next door, and hit the mother load of thread.  Obviously, someone had purchased a bit more than they needed, wink wink.  I can sooooo relate.  Although, I am always buying fabric, trims, beads and baubles, and loathe having to buy thread at $3+ a spool. So, to find all this - and not old musty, musky, smelly or dryrotted - it was an exceptional day!  And, drum roll please - the whole lot was 5 bags at $3.99 each! Oh happy day! 
 And, I noticed that my next post will be my 300th blog post!  It may seem incredible since I spread it over the last six years - but none the less - I shall celebrate and have a GIVE AWAY of a handmade purse.  All you'll have to do is post here or on my new Facebook page. Tell a friend!  The more the merrier!
 It is the perfect way to kick-off the next phase of my sewing and crafting!
  

 That's all for now... I should do some of my neglected household chores, but instead I shall watch episode 7 of Downton Abbey and ignore the mess!
