And I think I just may win!
Didja see my leaves? These beauties arrived today from Alexis and Sara. What wonderful things they are. Thanks for the extras too! I am nearing the ability to put them together. Do I need to get the stuff off my design wall by finishing it, or can I just take it down and call it a UFO again. Those poor stripes started out as a UFO. Sigh……….
I innocently opened my email the other day, not intending to purchase anything. Not a thing. And Connecting Threads was announcing their 4th of July Sale-A-Bration. They were actually selling fabrics for $2.28 and $3.00! Oh, man. I was determined not to purchase anything, I really didn’t need any more fabric. I closed the window and put it to bed.
After I had chosen so carefully as to maximize the benefit, I pushed PURCHASE. And the Cart told me that I had $42.08 in fabrics and if I bought just $7.93 more they would reward me with FREE SHIPPING! Who could pass THAT up? No you, I’ll wager.
So back I went into the fabrics. And I found three read like solids, which is what I am into these days. And I bought a yard of each and that topped my Cart off over the $50. Yeah, baby! Free Shipping!
To make things worse (or actually BETTER) I stopped in at my beloved Purple Cow Resale shop on my way from bringing the Grand-Dog Hugeaux home. He is afraid of fireworks and his mean parents were going to shoot them off at the house. I digress.
I stopped at Purple Cow. There I found BLUE JEANS on the 99 cent rack! All of a sudden I needed a blue jean quilt. And of course I can’t cut up any of the one’s I have, you never know when 30 pounds will just drop off of me and I will fit into them again. I had to purchase extras. I got 7 pairs of the cheapest jeans in the history of mankind.
While there, on the other end of the 99 cent rack was this beauty. A size 34. Lovely blue 100% cotton dress. What you see on it is my 24 inch ruler! Isn’t that a hoot? Yeah, baby. A total hoot.
So while I didn’t get much else accomplished at the CPA today, I got a lot more fabric. And any day that you end up with more fabric than you started with is a damned good day!
glen: Oh and if you are keeping track of what DiNozzo ate today, he had the tomato that was left over from yesterday that Valerie brought for the salad AND a kleenex box from my bedside table AND yellow marks-a-lot that has been on my desk for ages.
