Yes, I'm a pretty boring blogger lately. Spring has sprung, and it's making me restless - not able to settle into any projects. I always want a road trip this time of year, and have been unable to get one since I got married. I used to LIVE on the road, and it haunts me in springtime.
I went thrifting the other day. I'm astonished at how high the prices have gone. Every thrift shop is packed, and a .99 t-shirt is now 3.99. Garage sale season is just around the corner, I wonder if inflation will hit those too? Probably. But I did find something.....
A beautiful piece of fabric. It was very long, already hemmed, maybe used for a banquet table? I just cut it in half and hemmed the cut edges, and made new curtains. Yes, my daisy curtain
is down already. I couldn't resist this fabric. I'm not sure if it's barkcloth or a new home dec fabric - I'm not fabric savvy.
Whichever it is, I'm loving it.
I'm a huge Lucy fan. I have the whole series on dvd, my family got them for me over several occasions. My sweet friend Nikki got me this for Christmas:
One of my favorite episodes! I can so relate.
And I got some new readers.
I don't wear my contacts often, but when I do, I keep trying to read things over the top of them. Which um, can't be done with contacts. I spotted these at Michaels and had to have them. It's nice to be able to see the tv [Lucy, you know] while I'm stitching, and impossible without readers.
I hope you are all enjoying some warmer weather. It's not exactly WARM here, but warmER, and that makes me happy. We have rain moving in for the next week or so, which makes me achey, but I can stand it for some warm breezes. Does anyone else feel a little naked in spring, walking around without all the bulky winter clothing on?
