When I was in the throws of the shelving project, I noticed a rash on the inside of my forearm. At the time, I thought maybe I had gotten into something while digging for tools and stuff for the building project... or had a reaction to the saw dust. Me with my sensitive skin, and all. Then it spread to my other arm. Then areas on my hip developed the rash. Itched and burned like crazy. I wanted to
The first week of school has kept me on my toes! I had to read 3 chapters, an article, write an essay, write a post and participate in the online discussion, AND take a quiz. I was thrilled to learn, that after taking the quiz, it automatically gets graded and you learn the score right away. How cool is that?! There were a few questions I guessed at -- deductive reasoning, ya know? With that said, I got 100% on my first quiz. Talk about a happy camper!
My hostas and columbine sure have enjoyed the weather we've been having lately. The hostas are huge!
The weather turned HOT and HUMID over the weekend. At least it wasn't raining. I took advantage of my down time (i.e. not doing school work) and got the rest of my garden in. I also was able to get my planters done.
I've been remiss on sharing my latest adventures in treasure hunting! I've found some cool-to-me things lately.
First up is this grapevine sugar bowl handcrafted in...
Next up is another addition to my porcelain doll collection.
Only $1.99! Not sure why she was priced so inexpensively since others were priced from $5.99-$9.99, but I wasn't about to argue. She has a great expression on her face, and a little tuelle underskirt.
I found a tote bag in great condition for the low, low price of $1.99! I figure I can use it to tote around my stitching. Or -- When I go siteseeing, I can put all my "stuff" in there, including my ginormous camera.
It's big enough that I can use it for my school stuff, if I decide to go to the library to study. It even has pockets inside to hold all the little do-dads we think we need, lol.
It's a sad thing when I see stitched projects end up in 2nd hand stores. Don't people realize how much work goes into these things? This little kitty had a price tag of 29cents...
I worked quite a bit on Blossom last week. She finally has a face! Isn't she pretty?
I've agreed to do a private exchange with a bloggy buddy, so Blossom will be put on the back burner for a while. I've picked out the fabric for the exchange and worked out what design I'm going to use. That's all I'm sayin!
Until next time,
