Yesterday I set out and went to Joanns, office Max and shoe shopping..with a Doctors appt mixed in there as well..I had an appt for Tucker for his general exam and it was going to take like 8 hours..and it was too late for us to pick him up...so cancelled till next week..but now we know how long he will be at the doctors..just wish they had told us when we made the appt..but all was not lost..I went shopping anyway..while Tucker sat patiently in the car..(I did try to hurry though)..I went to joanns in search of some fabrics to make dolls and make my seam binding with for my crow calendars..they didn't have much in the above..but I thought these would do...
These 3 are my favorites..Debbie Mum has the cutest fabric and it was on sale..like 50% off you can't beat those prices..and the one on the left is so retro..I love it..I can't wait to make a doll dress out of that one..;)
and of course I had to get some cat fabric...also Debbie Mum..
I picked up some rick-rack and some reflective tape so I can make Tucker some jackets for him to wear..he has one already..but he needs a cute variety..so next week, when I take him in I will look for weather resistant fabric for him..
I picked up some more black paint..(to use in all my primitive painting redos.... and some satin and matte varnishes to finish up those said projects...I also picked us both up an accordian organizer to put in our glove boxes so we aren't searching for documents etc...nice to be organized..;)
they had .99 cent patterns also at Joanns..this sucker retails for 12.00...would never pay that...so hopefully I can follow these..I only like my doll patterns..sometimes these kind throw you for a loop because they are all scattered all over..no rhyme or reason..do you all have the same thoughts on these...they can be so confusing..you have to read between the lines several times..before you get it...
I also picked up more organizers for my machine embroidery designs..they fit nicely under my table and I just labeled them today..I have a boat load of designs..and I catorgarized them into holidays etc..makes it so much easier to find them..
here are the 2 bins filled with designs the bottom also houses misc wood patterns and other misc stuff..the accordian folder finally said enough and was getting too small and I couldn't close it up any longer..so in the trash it goes..;)
we went to the doctors yesterday as Mike hurt his achiles tendon(?) and he was in so much pain..and I went as I had a urinary tract infection..oh happy day..my back was really hurting me..so didn't want to wait any longer..oh and peeing in a cup is a real treat..you have to do so many things before you actually go in the cup..Ladies you all know what I am talking about..but we had success...okay I know TMI...lol..we then went to get Mike some lifts/supports for his shoes and we went to the place where I got my 3 pairs earlier last fall...and I am sold now on you get what you pay for...I will probably always have to wear better shoes now..cause when I don't my left foot still hurts and it ain't fun..so I spyed the cutest pair there..(actually there were alot of cute ones there..but they are expensive so I kept with one pair..I wanted a closed toe pair as in the winter it is just to cold to wear sandels..and I also got a pair of inserts to put in these and my running shoes..(no I don't run) they are just a better shoe for my feet..so hopefully now when we go out walking my left foot won't hurt..
I just love these..and they are so comfortable and make my feet look small..(just wish they made the rest of me look small...;) but I love the round toe in front and they are easy on and easy off..which I love..so we both left the store with a lot less money but with happier feet..Yesterday was also our 24th "church" anniversary...where we had a very small church wedding with immediate family and that was it..we didn't do much because Mike wasn't feeling up to walking etc..so we will put off our dinner out for hopefully next week..maybe even a movie..not sure...anyway that was my day in a nut shell..it was gorgeous too..which was another plus because the night before we had a big wind storm mixed with rain...and we lost power at about 9pm..so we went to bed and red by our little bed lights..and we tossed and turned all night..me cause of the wind and Mike because of foot pain...so it was nice to see a sunny day..and driving and seeing all the tree limbs etc on the road and work trucks out..it was a mess...but our yard was just fine..thank goodness...well I hope you all have a great day...Take care..:)
