Today is time for a Gifted Gorgeousness check in. I'm still in the middle of my busy busy time. Since the last check in (July 15th) I have found time to work on my Elshire Family Crest for my Grandpa though. Only 4 days worth of work unfortunately! Here is where I was for the July 15th check in...
Now onto the Monday Update part of my post. I worked on one of the Christmas Treasures. Remember them from 2016 DUCJC?
We had another fun Thursday through Saturday out garage sale hunting. This time was the Lincoln Hiway Buy Way. The part we did goes across Ohio. We stayed at a hotel along the route 2 nights. We ended up with a little less than 200 garage sales. The only thing I found stitching related was two more project boxes for $1.25! Jeremiah got some awesome books for school though!! 2 really amazing Life magazine published books about the September 11th attack. They were marked $25 and $20 originally and we got them for $5! They are full of personal stories and just amazing pictures. There was another one that is Letters Home from World War 2. They included photo copies of the original letters. We glanced through it and just can't wait to read the history of these personal stories. It was $1! I found some workbooks for his school work that were originally $15 each and got them for $1 or $2. So we some great deals!! It was horrible hot and we are so sore from all the walking and getting in and out but we had so much fun!!
There is a little of this and a little of that going on this week. We'll be starting up our school year one day soon too. But I'm hoping to pick back up the Family Crest and work on it till Friday. Hopefully my needles will find the mojo and get to stitching!
