Happy Thursday!

Hello Friends! Thank you for the amazing response to my Giveaway! You still have a few days left to enter. If you haven't yet make sure you do. :)

I worked on my daughter's quilt over the weekend since I had a ton more blocks to make. lol I have finished the main part I just need to decide on borders. I'm not sure what I want to do with those yet. The pattern calls for a 3",4", and 5" border. I know for sure I don't have enough fabric left to do them out of the fabric used for the middle. Even though it's not prim I really like the colors.



The weekend wasn't all sewing. Steve spent Friday afternoon with me. We went to lunch then to the Habitat for Humanity Restore and the thrift store. I bought one thing and forgot to take a picture of it and at the moment I can't find my memory card for my camera. I took it to work yesterday and now it's gone. :( (I was reorganizing my pictures at work yesterday.) Anyway, so until I find it no more pictures. But I did take pics of some of my thrift store goods already.

I don't have a fireplace but I LOVED the punched tin match holder. The latch hook mat is for a little craft something I'm going to try.



Close up of the stitchery ditty bag pattern. Too cute!



I also went to the Goodwill with my sister on Saturday. I swear we both buy a lot when we are with each other. I found this graduated set of Ball jars. For the right price they are for sale. :)



I like the eagles on the fronts of them.



Last but not least. I had a candle holder like this one that got broke. So I was so excited to find this one. I know it's a Home Interior product but this one is actually kind of rusted around the edges and has some wear. Trust me... I know the pic is horrible. LOL. It is perfect! The candle light is from a light I have near it. I haven't put one in the holder yet.



Today is my only day off and I have a few things I need to do. I have some things I'd like to paint and redo. Wish me luck because it always seems I get side tracked and don't get stuff done. I have made a decision. If I don't get some of this stuff redone I'm going to re donate. I have way too much stuff AGAIN. Things at the booth have slowed downed tremendously and I don't want to be stuck with all this stuff. Like I said on Facebook, I get paralyzed with the thought of reorganizing all this stuff so I really think I am a Hoarder. I need to get busy and weed out before it really gets out of control.
