The most expensive book was Couture Sewing @ $3.99, followed by Shirtmaking @ $2.99. The rest were all $1.99 each. Gotta love it!

Fabulous finds from VV and Sally Ann's. That was a great day! All added to my stash for now. The brown is an upholstery weight perfect for bag making I think. Right of that is 5 metres of flannelette, guess I know what all the girls in my fam will be getting for Xmas! Makes me very happy looking at this pile. I also picked a bunch of binding & some beautiful burgundy baby Llama wool from Peru. I got 16 - 50 gram hanks for $8.00. I bet it easily cost at least that much for each when it was new. So I'm pretty excited about making a sweater or a shawl with it. I want to make something I'll love & wear forever. I get this same trepidation when I get an extra nice fabric - I don't want to be disappointed in the results. Oh well, anything can be remade I spose.

My sweet little grand-daughter and my son & dauther-in-law came down from Quesnel to visit. It was awesome seeing them. Wish they lived closer to the Ridge.... She's just a bit over 4 months, a very happy and contented baby. I never dreamt becoming a grandma could be so wonderful. My daughter Jo loves being an Auntie too.
I get so busy with my life and following other people's blog, I end up totally neglecting mine! I do have some pretty darn good ideas to share, it's learning how I guess. Sometimes I feel real like a real old school chick....lol. New things to learn & embrace.
