However, I did have a great week. I continued to work on the usual -- eating things we have on hand, using up craft supplies, etc.
In the food department, we ate everyday...lol...something and I cooked it from ingredients we had on hand. Of course, I didn't keep a list. I remember making a big pot of soup for one day and eating on it for a couple...lol. We had fried chicken in there somewhere. Oh, and chicken pasta from the freezer.
On the craft supplies, I actually worked on 4 placemats that I have had lingering in my stash for years. They are a Christmas pattern, and I always tell myself I'll make them for Christmas decor. Yet, when Christmas time rolls around I'm too busy doing other things to finish the project. This year I am going to get them ready in advance.
I also made a trip to Hobby Lobby while Mama was visiting. I did buy a few things that I needed. I'm trying to be careful and only buy things needed for finishing an ongoing project. I bought three packets of bias binding for the placemats and a rotary cutter blade. Then I picked up three skeins of yarn for ordered projects. (I'll share those in a second.). I also bought two pieces of decor. Both were marked down, and they are designated for the top of a shelf I keep in the upstairs hall.
These are the projects I bought yarn for -- mermaid tail cocoons and matching headbands.
I've sold three and had an order for a fourth. (I am buying more yarn for the fourth today.)
They're sized newborn to 3 months and go up to the underarm....most people are using them in photos.
Then one of the pieces for the upstairs shelf was a "color me" canvas.
I settled in with my favorite markers and colored these cute little birds.
