Comfort and Remembrance

Last Saturday my Aunt Linda passed away from this Earth. She was quite special to me through my teen years. She bought corsages for my cousin, Heather and I for the prom as we went with friends as no boy was lucky enough to ask us. For Scott and my wedding she gave us a beautiful wool blanket made from the sheep that she hand raised on her farm in the 80's. I will always have it to bring her to the front of my memories. I've put it on the back of the recliner by our Christmas tree.
Thrifting finds

Burlap with keys.
Yesterday after Scott got home from work he wanted to visit His House thrift store to see if they had any old computers he could get a part off from cheap. He didn't have any luck but I found 4 things for my crafty side to use; some Aida cloth for cross-stitching, some curling ribbon, some black bow ties and some pearls. All were mine for $1!

After we left His House we stopped by Jo-Ann Fabrics and Crafts to see if I could find a remnant of tight red corduroy but they didn't have any at all. But I did find this piece of unique printed burlap that I know I can use in an altered project. The piece was marked $4.99 and then they take another 50% off that as it was a remnant. BUT the burlap was on sale so I got it 50% off the sale price so I paid just $1.75 for this piece...

This morning I had a craving for sausage, egg and cheese biscuits so I made some biscuits and Scott did the sausage and scrambled eggs. They were delicious... I even made a heart shaped biscuit with the bit of dough left after cutting out the biscuits.

 Today it's all about laundry and crafting!!! More to come later!
