Last Friday I went to the podiatrist. Of course I had to stop at the thrift store.
I was so excited. I found cross stitch patterns!!! Several of them were LizzieKate patterns.
I was so happy to see that they were very reasonably priced too. I found some I really liked. Here is one of my favorites…
The bigger ones that were in a plastic sleeve were priced at 50 cents. The smaller ones were 25 cents.
I got more than I will likely get stitched but I thought Kelli might like a couple of them.
My very favorite is this one. I LOVE alphabet samplers.
I had seen this one at the cross stitch in Osage when went but didn’t get it. I had already spent too much.
Some of these once stitched need a better frame. This I’d like better with a brown wood frame.
It’s hard to say no or to reign myself in when they are only 25 cents or 50 cents…so I bought them all.
I figured these could still all fit in my cross stitch basket so I’m okay. I do have to talk to Kelli though. When a cross stitch shop went out of business a year or so ago she bought a bunch of their cross stitch linen. I’d like come of her scraps if she’s willing to share so I can stitch a couple of the small ones. She’s good at sharing and I know she won’t mind.
I have stitched another night or two..nothing intense or serious, but little by little I’m making some progress.
This thrift store find really had me smiling.
