The day before the floor goes in. Also the day that DH is pulling the OLD carpet and underlay up.
Went to the local hardware store, there should be a special word for the size of these buildings, the official name is a Warehouse, but "The Hardware Block" springs to mind. .
Was told I didn't *need* a crowbar, a pinch bar was sufficient....so I got it, and wandered off to look as the clearance rack. Found an ailing pink African Violet. I have a fe of these on my kitchen windowsill, so it will have company.
I have a *thing* for waifs, strays and clearance goods, whether plants or animals.
Also visited with a couple of friends who meet on Thursdays. We went looking for a new patchwork shop that we had heard about, but didn't find it, so went to an established shop nearby.
I was good, and only bought a skein of hand dyed floss, have a project in mind for the Studio.
Was so pleased that I didn't buy more fabric, but I did help the girls choose some pieces for their on-going projects.
...and now for something completely different......
friends to shop with
a husband that doesn't mind me shopping
space for "me" to be creative
children who think of this chaos as just another adventure
other bloggers who encourage me
