What Great Luck!
We went to our local Value Village yesterday to look for costume ideas for Halloween. Did i tell you already it's my *favourite* holiday? We're hosting a party again but we're both a little stuck on ideas. J struck gold last night but i'm still thinking about some options.
Whil there, i of course found some other things. I love going to the bedding/linens section to find potential fabrics and i usually find really lovely bed sheets to act as lining for those Nappy Bags i make. Yesterday, as i was casually going through the racks, some dude came up to the row that i was just about to go into and pulled the most magnificant sheet out. He must have spotted it and targetted in on it. He then walked away. And i followed him. Not necessarily stalked, but i used this excuse to go find J. Maybe he would realize that he didn't really like it. And the guy held on tight to this great fabric. So i eventually gave up and lost sight of him.
I then when on to find this great knitting book. Aren't the pictures fun? I'm not sure if she's recognizable to anyone else, but i swear that's Tonya Williams from Young and the Restless fame. Too funny! I was excited to make a couple of the sweaters - that is until i got home and saw the whole book is in French!
Oh well, i didn't find a costume but i did find a great sweater and wonderful nursery rhyme book that could be used for those book bags, or not. So, as we were paying for the stuff, i had a funny feeling that i would find the sheet i wanted. I looked around for the dude, looked in the cashier's area, and VOILA, there it was crumpled on the floor, unwanted, and discarded. But waiting just for me!
It was my day after all!
