I totally scored Friday night when I went to Value Village.
Here, I have never found a store with amazing deals like my sister can get at Goodwill--but this was exciting for me. (this is a flickr picture--click on it to go to flickr to see my notes)
I like reading blogs. I read a-lot of blogs (I have 255 feed in my bloglines). Some of those update every day, some every few months). I read a few in the morning, a few at naptime and a few at night. Some are rss feeds for etsy stores--so I click over to look at the pretty yarns/rovings/whatever.
I have loved reading the blogs of crafty mamas over the years. (that's 5 different links) (and another knitter/sewer/thrifter) Knitters/spinners/dyers/sewers/artists/photographers--they all have their unique touch and I love seeing what they can do.
Inspired by Soulemama--I want to take those vintage sheets and make pajama pants. I want to learn sewing techniques but dont' have $$$ to buy fabric (and my huge garbage bag of scrap fabrics and quilt tops that I got from freecycle accidentally got thrifted to our local shop--ugh).
Hubby thinks the prints are weird--and they sort of are--but I like them.
I foudn many more that I wanted--but had to restrain myself.
Now I just need to get my sewing machine back in proper order (bottom tension is messed up and I can't seem to figure out how to fix it--I've changed the tensions settings over and over)..and then I can get crafty.
