I’ll admit…the one thing I don’t like about childcare is that I don’t get to thrift as much. But…that’s not a bad thing. I really am so blessed and need nothing…but getting out to do some thrift shopping is still fun for me.
One day I did get out. Parents had picked up early and I raced out the door behind them hoping to hit the thrift store before it closed and I made it. I was so happy.
I found some yard sticks for Hubby. He’s been collecting the old ones with advertising on them. I am not sure what he’s doing with them yet.
I found goodies for me too.
Fabric was 25 cents a piece and the Fiskars scissors… 50 cents. I didn’t know if the scissors would be very good or not but I got it home and it’s VERY good. I figured it had a nick in the blade or that it was dull but it wasn’t. It cuts like a charm.
I’m not sure where these fabrics will find themselves. For now…in my stash with like colors. Each piece in the photo is about a yard’s worth. The beauty of making scrappy quilts is that most any fabrics can fit it’s way into my stash.
I have a couple more doctor’s appointments coming up in the next bit. When I was little my mom would always treat me if I was good at the doctor’s office. Back then my treat was a candy at the grocery store. If it was something serious like a shot or wart removal she’d take me to the hardware store. They had toys in the basement and I’d get to pick something small. One time, I got one of those weaving looms to make hot pad holders. I think that was for my kindergarten shot. If I am a good girl at the doctor’s I think I’ll treat myself with a stop to the thrift store. Now hopefully the thrift store will have some little goodie for me…or for the childcare kids. I get just as much joy at finding something for them as I do when I find something for myself.
Today we’re hooking up with Patchwork Times.
