Motivation Friday

Friday, August 14, 2009
I've been busy on my days off. Ken and I found time to attend an auction sale. An elderly man is moving into an apartment and he had some "treasures" I had to buy!


I bought all these items in a box for $4. The square baking dish with removable handle and lid, 2 aluminum pie pans, 2 glass fire king pie pans, a pyrex pie pan, a pyrex loaf pan with lid, and the two collectable red/orange pyrex dishes with lids. Oh, and there is a pyrex 8x11 pan that I forgot to take a picture of. Ken bought a spare "air tank" (you fill it with compressed air and take it to where you need to fill a tire) a very handy item for a farmer. We also bought two camping chairs! I will have to take a picture of them when I get them to the camper, as they are in my trunk!

I found a dab of black fabric, enough to cut 11 more strips for my bricks and stepping stones, so I've been sewing on these.

I found time to press my D9P units, so they are ready to sew too!

Tomorrow I volunteer, so I better hurry up and get all my stuff together. What did you do this week??

I think that is a wounderful buy at the action!!!! I am so glad you got a few blks made!!! You have had a great week!! What have I done?? Well, reading, planning and for the last couple days, and tomorrow too - I am making meals for the freezer!! My type of 'storing for the winter' since I don't have my raspberry bushes or starwberry plants to make jam out of this year!!! It's been a fun week, but I have not sewn.....
Next week, I will. I will go write it down in my planning book so I will remember!! ;-)

What a bargain you got. I had to go back to work this week, school has started back here in GA. It has been a long week.

I was sick a good part of the week with the Summer flu, so didn't get too much done. I did poke some buttons on the 'puter and got more fabric, most of which has come in.
yesterday i washed 2 outside doors and cleaned a small window over one of them. Hope to do more sewing next week.

No sewing yet, and maybe not again until next weekend, but we'll see.
