January 1, 2010

Thanks to Janice, and a little competition with Kiki, and a *I figured you'd alredy been doing this* from my beloved, Cherries, I decided to do a sorta Thing-A-Day blog.

I am hoping to make it a crafty thing-a-day with a mugshot-a-day thrown in. and I may ramble on about stuff, cos I do that. oh, I love to bake, so I may include a baked goodie as a thing-a-day. It's my blog. I can do what I want. Hah!

For now, I'm gonna tell you about my crafty TAD for today...

A crocheted throw.

A couple of weeks ago, Barry and I were at one of our favorite Thrift Stores. (Family Thrift Centers, 920 N. Durham, 77008). I love thrifting. So I'm always looking for sweet finds. I found these beautiful crocheted squares. There were several. I wanted them but I really didn't want to spend the $3.93 price that they were marked. So I left them.

I tell Barry, that if I really want something but don't really need it, and its there when I go back, then it was meant to be. Not that I go and seek out the items. I usually forget about them. But if I come across it, its happiness all over again.. and you know... it was meant to be. These squares fall in that category.

On my first visit, it seems like there were at least 6. I remember thinking that it would be too expensive to pay $24 for something that I would have to finish myself. I mean... well... maybe I'm just that cheap. Whatever. the wait was worth it. I got four squares at $1.91 each. there were five. I left one behind.

So, there you have it. The reason for my big push to start this blog and my first thing a day.


  1. Hoooorray!

    This is so exciting. I'll add you as a link on my new blog. I made my first granny square today. Yay!

  2. I am doing a thing a day too!

  3. It's cos we're badass! yay!

    ok, now, y'all are gonna have to call me out when I start slacking.

  4. Cherries the sheep big are those squares? Nice find by the way.

  5. about 33" a square. huge, huh?


  6. Gigantic for the $$.
