What A Rip

Stood in line for an hour in the cold to get into a church rummage sale just to get inside and find a small sale with nothing I needed for my store.

Did It Again

I was making a doily that looked nice in the picture but the directions were screwy. It was 3/4 done, I got mad at it and cut it up!

Not Too Shabby

We didn't do too bad at the sale. We got there an hour early and already there was 15 people in line. They let 50 people go in at a time and luckily we were in the first group. We made a beeline for the craft table and snatched up all the crochet thread and hooks and all the needlework books before anybody got a chance. By the time I paid for my stuff the place was jammed.

Stand In Line

We're going to a church rummage sale today and have to get there at least an hour early and stand in line. If you don't get there early and be near the front of the line when it opens the older ladies will wipe it out in the first five minutes!

I love vintage patterns so while I was planning my next doily I made this. It's from an American Thread pattern book from 1956.

Cut Up

I finished a doily all except the edging. I realized I didn't like the pattern after I worked three days making the doily so I took the scissors and cut it to shreds and threw it in the garbage. My husband just looks at me as if I'm nuts. I am! ha ha

Wild Asses

My husband took this while we were out hiking in the desert today. They are so cute!


It's nearing Easter and I shall be ravaging Walgreen's shelves. They are the only store that sells my most favorite candy of all: Brach's Bunny Basket Eggs. I could and have eaten bags of them at a time!

Guess What?

Yes, I am almost finished crocheting another doily to sell in my store on eBay. Imagine that! Of course, they never bring what they're worth. Approximately 1/10 what they should really sell for. Not that I'm complaining. It's still fun to see if anyone wants one.

In Case You're Wondering...

The previous posts are just to show you what I've made in the past month or so. They have already been sold.

Check Out My Ebay Store

In case you need any patterns or supplies for crochet, knit, cross stitch, macrame, needlepoint, quilting, sewing, embroidery or plastic canvas I have reasonable prices and reasonable shipping costs. Sometimes I have doilies for sale, too. It's the first link under the Good Places To Buy Crochet Materials. For some reason, Blogspot is trying to keep me from advertising my store. They keep deleting the clickable link.
