What a day! My aunt (who is recently retired) and I went on a little shopping excursion. Our mission was to find some bedding, curtains and such for her new apartment. We were very successful and afterwards made a detour by the bead shop. This is part of what I purchased:
Pictured in this image are: stick pearls, colored baroque pearls, dyed pearls of various other shapes, howlite beads, & Czech fire polished beads. I have a few other goodies, but haven't had the chance to take images yet. Among my haul are: Swarovski bicones, seed beads, pendant findings, earring findings and pin backs.
I also raided the yarn store and have a few skeins that will be crocheted into gauntlets and accented with tatting! The other special find was at Target- a wool felt cloche that will have the tacky fabric flowers removed and replaced with tatting and silk ribbon flowers. Oh- do I have the projects to do now or what?!?
I am still awating your input, dear readers, for what you'd like the next Piney Woods Give Away Event to be! Let me know as I need to get things together before the end of the week.
Well, I had better post this and get myself fixed up before my husband arrives home. He is taking me out for dinner- I'm too exhausted from shopping to fix it myself! Until tomorrow~
