For Tiff's Good Stuff Thursday post I wanted to show you what I picked up at Goodwill last week. Another cracker tin (.99), some beautiful vintage corning ware ($1.49), a 100% cotton twin sized flat sheet ($1.99) and a great graphic printed pillowcase (.49). I also found a Battleship game for Ben. He's been wanting one for a while now and we found it on Amazon for $14.99. He was saving his quarters and counting them out nearly everyday. While at Goodwill I asked Ben if we should look at their games. We found an almost brand new game with all of the pieces for $2.49. He was so excited! I'm passing on the thrify genes to my kids! :) (game is not in the picture because it has been played nearly non stop since we brought it home).
I'm so excited about this top sheet. I feels great, its a good quality cotton and its equivalent to close to three yards!! Oh, you want to see a close up? Ok, here ya go:
Now, onto an update of my WIP Challenge:
- Barney's Blocks ~ still need to piece the backing (but I've at least pulled it out and its sitting on the ironing board).
- Alycia's QOV Project ~ 14 pillowcases are made and ready for shipping. The blocks are done and I've started putting them in rows. I ran out of bobbin thread and then lost steam after that. I'll continue working on it this afternoon.
- Ainsley's Quilt ~ blocks are done.
