What can I say...I love thrift store shopping. I got out again yesterday and found New Horizons Thrift store in Pueblo. It's a huge building and I spent quite a bit of time before uncovering the following bargains.
The green cotton fabric was a remnant that I found at an older Wal-Mart, which still carries fabric. It looked like hand dyed. The plaid is wool, and hopefully when I get back home I can make a couple more advent calendars before I lose my momentum, since I failed to get them done for this past Christmas.
I was intrigued by Julie's post and have joined this swap for sock blocks. My knitting of socks, however, has fallen by the wayside. I have found the Kindle is the perfect thing to read while rocking babies. I doesn't lose my place, isn't too heavy or hard to hold one handed! What a great way to read with a baby keeping me warm. Babies are napping now, and I better take advantage and get things done.
