Thrift Store Finds and Two Week-end Projects

I took a class about a year ago and made this landscape.  I've never finished it soooo  I have my granddaughters starting Saturday nite and I'm not allowed to do anything but be with them.  I am allowed to go to the potty or to get a drink if I ask and promise to be right back.  They will allow me to work on hand projects so I thought I'd embellish the landscape and hand quilt the doll quilt below.  The doll quilt has been lying around a long time also.  I must be the only person in the world that has this problem!!!

On Thursday I volunteered at the Thrift Shop and found these shoes for $5.00!  I love Clark's so I'll be wearing these babies to work next week.

Then I found this container for a buck!!

A container full of white buttons!!  Oh Yes!  I will spend a buck on that!!  I kinda sorta collect buttons but I don't talk about it.  I'm a "Closet Button Keeper" and I know this isn't good.

Aren't they pretty?

I've had a good week and I'm still working on my sewing room and it's looking better every day.  I hope by tomorrow to have it all back together and looking neat for a sewing room.  As neat as I can be.  I'm not a "Neat" person!!
I'm going to link up to the following:

PS:  It's Friday Night Sew-In and I'm going to join up.  I was number 73 so I think it's so hot that everyone wants to stay in, be cool and create!!

Hello Judy,

I think that is the best dollar you may have spent. Have fun with the buttons.

Happy days.

What a great buy that box of buttons is :-)... Those shoes were a lucky find too; they look very comfortable!
