I’ve taken to visiting the local thrift stores mainly to find craft books at bargin prices and I’ve scored quite a few in the last couple of weeks. Today I didn’t find any books but found some material instead.
It seemed like a good deal at $9.99 for 2.5 yards at 60 inches wide. I thought I’d try to dye some of it but the problem of course is I haven’t a clue what the fibre content is so anybody else know what this is?
I’m still beading and not doing much of anything else, progress is slow but I should finish this off today or tomorrow which means two down and three scarves to go. I had this set up in front of the computer so that I can bribe myself inbetween rows with some computer action at the same time.
And last but not least another fun photo of a die that was rolled when my sons and I were playing a board game (Settlers of Catan – I highly recommend it). The die looks huge in the photo but really wasn’t but the neat thing is my son rolled it and it settled on one of it’s corners, how many times does that happen to someone?
My brother and sister-in-law and their daughter are coming for a visit tomorrow, which will be nice as they live in Vancouver so we don’t get to see them very much. I need to clean, my most favorite thing to do (not). They’re not fussy but you know…one must clear away some of the junk so they can at least get in the house (just joking it’s not quite that bad).
