While going through my things planning for the move I came across a startling quantity of clothing that I can either no longer fit or would never dare wear again. Some of those items were sweaters that I had grand ideas of turning into pillows. My mom’s b-day is in two days and I thought that they would make a great gift for her. Well I was reminded of why I like to give things without a deadline looming. They came out okay but not at all like I expected or planned really.
In baby news the Wonder Twins have a tentative date to come home. Their doctor thinks they should be ready to go by the end of next week so fingers crossed. I’m sure that everyone’s positive thoughts have helped. The doctor thinks that they have come along great so far. This good news reminded me that I never got the ribbon for Mimi’s sweater so I went to Save-a-thon knowing that I always manage to spend at least $10 a visit despite my best efforts. Well today the .99 cent ribbon rack nearly made me break my promise. Well I shouldn’t say nearly because I still bought more than I should have. I also needed ribbon for the tank sweater I’m designing. I wanted both a casual and dressy ribbon so I grabbed those too and two extra just because ;0)
I used the one second from the bottom for Mimi’s sweater and the red and the white polka dot ribbons are the dressy and casual options for the design project. The box is for my mom too. I’m going to let Missy paint it for her, my mom loves it when she makes her things.
