So much for self discipline also

 My car went on auto control and whipped into one of my favorite thrift stores as we passed coming home yesterday....  This wedding dress was the "tag" color of the day for 99 cents.  It does have a red wine stain but it is covered with venise lace motifs, covered buttons and other laces..  When my back starts aching today I will sit and cut it up...  Wasn't I just posting the other day that I had too much lace?  I think I am going to use most of it for my 1000 post giveaway....along with a list of other fabs.

Morris is immediately claiming it for HIS stash as you can see...  









And he was right in the middle of his arduous chore of moving the long runner rug from the kitchen to the living room... So Molly is stranded on the rug by the door as she won't walk in the lino.

My plans for a lovely day sitting in the park stitching yesterday did not materialize.  When I had called my mother to tell her I was going to take her to the public gardens, there was a loooooooong pause....  So I suspected that she was making her own plans.  When I picked her up she indeed had her own agenda and I spent the day pushing the wheelchair around Walmart, Target and KMart.

What a great find on the gown Gerry! Your outing sounds like my mother. Shopping is always in the plans, her that is, not mine!

Wish we had a thrift store like that around here. We have to drive all the way to Edmonton to find a really big one. But I have found a few treasures at thrift shops in a couple of closer towns. And thanks for the Morris update. I was just wondering the other day how he's doing. Marilyn

$.99!!!!! Are you kidding me? What a treasure to find! A red wine stain never looked so good before, I am sure. With all the hand dyeing of laces and fabrics a red wine stain is an invititation to the dye bath! Too funny about Molly not wanting to walk on the lino. I have a dog that jumps from rug to rug on hardwood floors. That may be a new exercise routine....I'd rather stitch.
