No matter where we go thrifting we have a fun day. Today took us to Greensboro. We left here around 9:30 and got back around 2:30, I think. We decided to eat leftovers for supper and go to KFC for lunch on Sunday.
My battery to my camera died while we were out, but here are the pictures I got before it died:
|My breakfast of toast, blackberry jelly and bacon.|
|A load of pine needle bales headed somewhere.|
|Taken at one of the thrifts.|
|New restaurant for us. We both got their Italian Sub, which was similar to Arby's Loaded Italian sub. I got mine warmed, Tim got his cold. Chips on the side.|
|It was yummy!|
|The trees were all blooming down the center of this divided highway.|
|Here's my goody bargains for the day. Closer look below.|
So, I started a project tonight. I had a wooden tray that I wanted to paint or do something with. Here's what I have so far:
|Step 1: I found the center I wanted to use in the tray from a calendar I had in 2014. I cut it to size.|
|Step 2: Try to figure out which colors I wanted to put in the bottom margin and around the sides and edges.|
|Used painter's tape to protect the bottom as I paint the sides.|
|For the sides, I mixed these together. I don't like the orange, so I will redo it tomorrow.|
|The edge is more of a blue violet than blue.|
I also started a baby blanket tonight for a baby shower I will be attending in a couple of weeks.
One skein of yarn, size 9 needles. The border is knit. The pattern is purl 4 knit 1 every other row and knit the whole row every other row. I'm about 1/4 of the way done. It will be a small blanket. If I have time, I want to do another one with bigger needles and a little different pattern. I'll show you a picture tomorrow of the one I started today.
