I thought we've covered this already? SNOW??? My son is in afternoon Kindergarten. The school district has an automated phone call that goes out at SIX A.M. to all families to notify of school closures, delays, etc...Seriously, why are afternoon K families on this list? I think by 1:00 in the afternoon I'd be able to figure out whether not my kid has school. Is it really necessary to wake the whole family up? ugh...

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.
