Hello! Hope this finds you doing well. 🙂
Didn’t get much accomplished today. I had plans of working on the “quilt”, finishing my “stark” handbag, and possible making a small autumn wall hanging.
Well, as life so often does, it throws something into the works to change plans up a bit. I found out after getting home last night from church, of all places, that I had holey britches, no pun intended. At the back pockets of my jeans, there were rips. ARGG!
I told my Mom, on the phone last night, first my cruise control goes out on my car, then my oven goes out, and now my pants have blown out! 🙂 Oh well, life goes on. Not going to sweat the small stuff…

So, I wound up going to a place in Fort Smith, called Savers, today. Savers is a big thrift shop that provides a steady stream of income for the non-profit organization Big Brother Big Sisters, which specializes in youth mentoring programs. I’d rather shop there and know my money is going to help some kids. I found two pair of jeans in very good condition and also a handbag. My jeans are in the laundry, but here’s a pic of my bag.
We also looked at some cars for my son. Like I said, not a lot of project working going on today. I did crochet on the baby afghan in the car, though. I also made a ring. I guess that counts for something. 🙂
