Bill and I don't do much in the way of buying gifts for each other, but I did splurge and get him this for $3.88.
He has been talking about how much he would like some lately but won't buy it because it costs too much and he eats generic cereals anyway in an effort to save money. He's been hoping they would make a generic version of multi-grain Cheerios but so far I haven't seen any.
Our daughter got him some shirts, a case to carry his house plans in and a Clint Eastwood movie but I really think his favorite "gift" was this:
She usually will write your birth year on the card in addition to the current date, but she didn't on this one. She also got the birthday month wrong, but we'll forgive her! :) We are so blessed to still have her on this earth with us - she's 94 and sharp as a tack! Bill usually tosses his cards right after reading them and usually doesn't even say anything about them, but he made sure everyone in the house saw this one and then tucked it safely into his nightstand drawer. I know he'll cherish it forever!
So, what did I make this week (besides the pie, of course) for amylouwho's sew-n-tell Friday? I've been working on aprons to put in my Etsy shop. I'm currently bidding on adobe photoshop software on ebay so I hope to have the ability soon to put pictures into a collage, rather than have several pictures trailing....
I had a little photo shoot in my kitchen last night with "Lynn" - that's what my husband calls my dressform. She was fairly cooperative, but just a tad fussy when it came to changing outfits so many times.
It's a rainy Friday here and I've got plenty to do today. I hope to get some sewing done, but I definitely have to sign up for some craft shows - our crafty things won't sell unless we get them out there! Bill still has about 70 chairs he made in preparation for big sales at Christmas time and it sure would be nice to unload them. I might do some baking, too. We definitely won't be taking our evening walk in the rain so I'll probably head down to the basement and sweat a bit with Richard Simmons this afternoon!
