Excellent score, very nice day

My brother's baby chicks are so grown up that they got to play outside the coop today and, now, go nicely up to their house at night on their own with little prompting. They just crack me up.

I had a great time at the rummage sale. Turns out it was a garage sale (I'm not sure I know the difference) and it's not a Lutheran church but a Methodist one (I do know that diff). Their prices were way too low and there was a woman who got to the fabric/yarn table just seconds before I did and snapped up a giant bag of thread that I wanted but otherwise, great plundering (and probably the thread was old and would muck up my machine). I got lots of nice fleece and tons of woven cotton scraps and some nice trim and other odds and ends but the big score was precut Care Bears.

They originally came like this:

And because they were licensed, they were pretty pricey - all licensed printed fabric is. Today I got a bag of 19 of them - already cut out! for $.35. All their prices were way too low. I had 2.5 bags o' stuff and they were going to charge me $3.75. I gave them a $20 and told them to keep the change and save me some good stuff at the Christmas sale. Then they told me there's a second, secret Christmas sale after church one Sunday in December. They didn't know the date but told me where I could find it. So well worth the donation. Plus, the ladies at the table were so thrilled. That, alone, was worth it.

Anyway, Care Bears... I whipped up the first one. I think I can make improvements in the rest. It's almost like cheating but they really are darned cute and the Baby Bank will love them. They will be nice little palette cleansers to sew up.


I did not go for a walk. I almost did but the sun got me. It was actually cool enough with the breeze but the glare turned me around. So I made a cake instead. I had a Perfect Size lemon cake that i think I got at Grocery Outlet a while back. I found it when I reorganized the kitchen. So I baked it up. It's cooling now and then I'll frost it. It's small so I am NOT sharing with Mary and Paul. They can just trust me that it's a good bake.
