Seems I find things on Tuesdays. Today I had coffee with Sonya and her husband Aaron who is recovering from a stroke only a month ago. It's astounding to watch the progress he has made. It makes me smile as I watch him stiffly walk about, cane in hand, knowing how marvellous that simple function must be. I paused today to be grateful for a fully functioning body. I can move my arms, legs, and have no trouble talking. I look forward to celebrating with Aaron on his accomplishments and spending time with that wonderful family.
After coffee, I strolled down Broadway to the Value Village on 11th. I really shouldn't tell anyone this, because the amount of crafting loot that can be found there is rather staggering. Patterns for $0.69! Goodwill charges $1! But I mustn't hoard the wealth of supplies.
I found some fabric. This purple plaid was only $2 and came with what I assume to be it's original tags. I think I'll steam them off for safe-keeping. It's currently destined to become a skirt!
This sweet miniature rocking chair came home with me too. I couldn't pass it up. Something about the red colour, and the woven seat bottom just spoke to me. Besides, my dollies need a place to sit, right? Right. I quite thought so myself.
Along with the purple, I found a red fabric that appears to be taffeta perhaps. It drapes like silk and is super yummy. Despite having several large holes in it, I am content to use it and wear it to pieces. Also coming home is a scrap of green leaf print that perhaps used to be a curtain. It might be enough for a blouse, perhaps with some accent fabric to stretch it.
I finished my o w l s sweater today as well, so stay tuned for a photo shoot for that. So far my summer is plugging along in a wonderful fashion! I'm so excited to begin manipulating all the patterns I have found recently. Until next time, keep crafting!
