Yea I said I'd be back tomorrow on Monday forgetting I had to work the next three days. Let's see I've put 42 hours in in three days and still have to work tomorrow for another 14. So my apologies. Anyway, I promised I'd show you what I was working on. Well, despite my dining room looks like a disaster zone... no not all by me. LOL My son has discovered the joys of model cars. SOOOOOO... since Mom spreads her stuff on the dining room table so does my son. It's funny as a little girl I actually put model cars together too. Yep all tomboy here. LOL. I can just see his creativity oozing from him and of course Steve had close to 10 billion models that he brought over to the house for my son to finish too. OK Steve has been working on them too. Anyway, I bet you are wondering how I get anything done with my table looking like this.
This is mild compared to today LOL.
Ok my last towel ended up like this. I don't know why I've been in an Americana mode lately. The flag is made from left over material I had. I have also decided I am OCD because I find it very difficult to not try to get all my stitches the same as I stitched the black thread to hold the flag on. LOL.
Speaking of Americana... Since I sold my last Welcome sign to a fellow blogger I had to come up with a new sign for my porch. Well, since the Americana theme is just everywhere then I figured I better follow through.
Next I had this little pencil and pen tote I bought at a thrift store for $.35.
A little brown paint...
And a little help from Steve and his Dremel tool... It is not done yet! I need to sand and stain.
Now last but not least.... I hit the JACKPOT!!!!! I went to the Goodwill last night with my family. I was working at one of my jobs and they came for dinner and then stayed for a bit and since I'm allowed to leave work just stay in town we went to a Goodwill. I am just SO excited. Just look what I got... There is at least a yard (most of it is more than that) to every piece. The most expensive was $5.00 and the least was $.25. Steve made me buy some of it. He would look at it and say I can see you making this or that. LOL.
The star fabric in the back is probably 5 to six yards and cost $5.00. Steve says I need to get blue fabric and make an Americana quilt.
All I kept thinking was bonnet or quilt. So you girls may reap the benefits of this fabric. LOL.
I am going to try to update my selling blog tonight or Sunday. I'm suppose to go out today to a flea market, but my son just informed me he is staying home since his allergies are acting up. We shall see about that. LOL.
