More pictures...

I saw a note on Blogger when I signed in that there is supposed to be a scheduled outage at 8:23 a.m. pacific time...not sure if that is tomorrow or if it was today..

So here is the remaining picture of the Shepherd's Bush ornament I couldn't get uploaded yesterday...looks like it is going to work today. I started the next ornament (In a Manger) this morning, but didn't get a whole lot done. It's a bit different than the rest of the series in that the vine is not on the outside of the design, but sort of entwined in the stable roof. It will be fun to have something a little different.

Here is a picture of my new "drawers" as Von requested...I am really pleased with them and can hardly wait to find some cute ceramic pulls. I have envisioned pink roses...hope I can find some like that! Behind on the chair is a quilted table runner (same pattern at other end) that I found at a garage sale last week for $2. It's had some use, but still in excellent condition.

Well, my ebay thread bidding has been interesting. I made myself a promise that I would not bid over 80% of the price I could buy new threads in the store...and I am amazed that people will keep bidding higher than that. I am looking for Weeks Dye Threads if you didn't read yesterday's post. I won one set of 20 skeins this morning, at a very reasonable price. I had another set of 20 with 2 minutes left to go and someone outbid me in the last minute. Arggh. Oh well, they went over my limit anyway. I could have bought from the store for the same price. I immediately found two brand new sets of 15 I think, so I will start over again. It is just toooo addicting!!!

Tomorrow is John's birthday, so Lizzie and I went shopping tonight...shhh! It's a secret, I won't tell what we bought...but he would probably be embarrassed if I told anyway!

Now I'm really curious, Connie! What could you and Lizzie possibly have bought that would embarrass John, lol!!

Glad you won some thread on ebay. When I've been looking for particular items, I frequently found people bidding up unreasonably - especially on some used items! Right now, I'll leave the ebay shopping to you. But maybe once all these house projects are done. . . :D
