We're not really going to check on my goals. I spent the last week in Mankato with Mason, Laura Beth and Nick, so there was no sewing! But I got to play with Mason a lot, and although I haven't gotten him to say "grandma or grandpa" yet, I worked on it! My house is so quiet without him here to hold his arms up to me. Or play in the bathtub. Or read a book to. He even listens closely when I sing, no matter what! This is one of the last pictures I took before I left.
I love to shop at thrift and junk stores. I look for old dishes, especially old Pyrex. I bought this one, it goes with a set of smaller ones in different colors. This is a 1.5 liter casserole dish. The little "ears" on the sides make them easy to lift while hot.
Also found some flat flannel sheets I am going to try and use as batting on heartstrings quilts. With lots of seams and foundation fabric, they sometimes get quite heavy when you add batting too. And, I found Ken six more shirts. He wants button down the front, button down collar, with a front pocket, in conservative colors! Nothing like being picky! These will either become work shirts (and they don't have to be new--just clean and cared for) or farm shirts (where anything goes!)
The weather is beautiful today, the thermometer says 75 degrees, and I hear kids playing and lawn mowers going. Sure beats snow! I have my doors and windows open. Ah, fresh air!
I hope you're enjoying nice weather where you are too!
PS--check the previous post, that wildly striped afghan Mason is laying on I found in a thrift store for $5!!! I had to buy it, my grandmother made that pattern a lot and I didn't have one. I have great memories of her making them.
