what a find!

Check out the beautiful vintage tablecloth I found at the McKinney Trade Days last weekend! It does have one stain & a few holes..... which brought the price down & makes me not feel very guilty about cutting it up! Ohhhh I love to make other things with these tableclothes! Aprons, little girls/doll dresses, bags..... I think I'll look at this one a while before I decide what it should become. What do you think?

We went to the flea market all bundled in sweatshirts & jackets on Sunday afternoon & were amazed at how warm it got! By the time we left we were carrying all of our warm clothes and our bundles..... Allyson (still hobbling, bless her heart!) got some Christmas gifts bought & also bought a big bag of kettle corn! Love that stuff...

no more pictures!

Sorry, you won't be seeing pictures of my creations for a while. I am making Christmas gifts! I don't want my secrets & surprises to get out.....

On another note, I had a wonderful visit with Leigh Anne at ASU last weekend, & my parents in AZ. We did some shopping (mostly Christmas! Sorry I can't share that either.... geez, why have a blog at all? Good question...). We also went to see The Secret Life of Bees - a great movie & a wonderful book, I highly recommend both. I must warn you in advance though (& no, I did not warn Leigh Anne but I should have) there are some difficult topics in the movie & some hard scenes to watch. Dakota Fanning did a wonderful job & is growing up before our eyes. Amazing!

Ok, back to my sewing machine I go..... Have a wonderful day
