You would think I would learn over the years. But I don't. I posted a picture of some cute plastic canvas items and my Sis immediately responded with her "wish list". Needless to say, I have some new projects to work on. Then she told Mom about them so I have even more projects to complete. But that's okay. I love anything that uses yarn. I had the yarn for the first project Sis wants. A snowflake book mark and matching coaster. I cut everything out over the weekend and printed the patterns she wanted. I'm ready to stitch tonight. 


After talking to Sis on Saturday, it got me in the craft mood. I headed out to the local scrapbook clearance store and bought some card stock paper to make my heart wreath I posted on Saturday's post


While I was there, I picked up some cute paper for a spring project as well (don't know what the project will be, but I loved the paper.)


I stopped by Joanne's and couldn't really find the material I wanted. But a trip to Walmart had me running into a dear friend in the craft aisle. Together we found red burlap and I was able to determine a game plan for a couple of crafts. Come back tomorrow for the crafts I did over the weekend. 


I was armed with new ideas and new craft supplies. I was so excited to get home and start crafting. But as I was driving up Highway 66, I remembered an antique store my daughter-in-law visited recently. I had never been in there, but she used the magic word when describing it..."Pyrex". So I had to stop. I found this mixing bowl in the Town & Country pattern that I love. It was just $7.00 so I just had to have it. 


I stopped at a couple more, but didn't find any good deals. So I headed to the store and went home and fixed me some homemade pizza bread. Hubby was at work so I had supper and read on my book awhile.


I spend the rest of the evening gathering everything I needed for my crafts. I went to church Sunday morning then came home and crafted for awhile. I can't wait to show you what I made. Stop by tomorrow to catch up on my completed projects.

Well, now I can't wait to see your next post!! Isn't it fun to run into friends when you are shopping?! It's much better than a phone call.
