The Miss America Party was a whole lot of fun. I'm still sorting through photos, though, so it may be another day before I can share them in all their glory. Let me tease you by saying that my sister showed up in something a la "27 Dresses", only without the shepherd's hook. For reals.
My sister and I went thrifting on Saturday. She was able to take advantage of my luck, and we found her Perfect Party Dress ($3.50, on sale), three cooling racks she had said she needed (.50 ea), and few chunky sweaters that will do her some good in this delightful winter weather. In fact, I think she was getting ice today in her neck of the woods. Stay warm, sis.
I also happened to have a bit of luck as I had recently been telling hubs that I wanted a cast iron skillet, but had priced them and really wasn't sure which one to invest in. Maybe it was just the ones I was looking at, but gol-ly. Those things can be expensive.
Good thing I turned around on Saturday and saw the one waiting for me for 5 bucks. Check. That's a good day.
These photos are of a baby sized quilt I made for Carrie's biannual donation to her local children's hospital in memory of her little Mae. Both sides are from new-in-package vintage sheets. The colors are cheery, and I hope it brings a smile to a little one.
Fidget was so interested in this blanket. I used the yellow sheet in the nap blanket that she had used every day for a year, so she liked that hers was 'the same' as the one we were sending to the sick children in the hospital. It was so sweet to see her think about mommy's project and want a connection, too.
