It is finally Friday and the start of my 3 days off. I'm so thrilled and excited!!!! I am spending the weekend crafting and furniture moving. LOL. No no I'm not moving. I'm just going to rearrange my furniture to accommodate my new pie safe. Steve said he would help me so that I don't hurt my back again. My massage on Tuesday has helped me tremendously and my back is feeling great. But I don't want to be back in the same predicament so I will accept his help.

As I told you I went shopping at Pat Catan's on Tuesday. For those of you who are unfamiliar it is a HUGE crafting store kind of like Hobby Lobby but they are only in Ohio. I forgot that I still had a gift certificate left from Christmas from my parents. So, while we were in Wooster I just had to go see what they had. I found some great stuff.

OK, you all know I like my redware and yellow ware. Most of the pieces I have are reproductions, but I'm OK with that. Well, I happened to find these at terrific prices and had to have them. I'm working on a new home for all my pieces. This will be part of the furniture move.

Then as I picked the plates up and turned around I happened to see this for $6.47. Too cute!!!!

Then I found this awesome soap mold though I'm going to try it with wax.

I found a few other odds and ends of things to use in some up and coming things I'm going to be making. I'm not going to share some of the things I bought because it will be something I have never attempted before and not sure it will turn out. LOL.

This morning I made a special order bonnet and apron set for a customer. Believe it or not I actually used fabric from my stash. :) It just needs to be stained but I'm holding off until I have a few more things to stain. I also sold her one of my sets in my collection. Guess I need to make a new one for me.

Now I'm on to a special order scarecrow doll for one of my BFFs. He'll look a little something like this... I made this one a few years ago and just sold it in my booth recently so she asked if I would make her one. So when he is done I'll post pictures.

I took a break to talk with you, but I want to get him made so I can move on to Christmas stuff. Have a great day my friends and thanks for visiting. :)
