A Little This and A Little That

I got home a little after 6:00 on Sunday evening and was sooo tired! Sitting in a car can really wear a person out. Besides being worn out from my visit! I stay up too late and am pretty busy while I am at my daughter's so it takes a couple of days to recuperate once I get home. Now it's taken me this long to get back my wherewithal and catch up on "loads" of laundry!

I have 37 granny squares made for my afghan now. I have several of each of the above plus solids in all three colors. Now I just need to figure out how I want to arrange the blocks and I have lots more blocks to make! I made half of the blocks while riding back and forth to my daughter's!

On my trip there were sooo many sales! I couldn't resist a couple of them...

We stopped in at the Wilson Outlet in North Bend, WA. I was looking for a Lime Green Purse but there was only one and it was kinda ugly. After looking around, I found this beautiful Nine West bag for $23.99 (MSRP $100)! My daughter got me a Liz Claiborne bag several years ago that looked similar but I have worn it out. So, needless to say, I am very happy with my new bag and at a great price!

Then I couldn't resist going into Famous Brand Shoes...just to look around! Well, $25 later...

A pair of Born leather flip flops! Regular price was $39.99! I love shoes but flip flops are my favorite!

My birthday is on Monday and hubby bought me something I have been wanting for a looonnng time! However, it came unfinished so we had to put sealer on it. Can you guess what it is?

We put the last coat of sealer on it last night so maybe we can have it put together by my birthday!

Well, that is enough This & That for one day! I am hoping to have a card for you tomorrow!



  1. That is a nice purse! Sounds like you had a lot of fun. I hope you'll add a picture when your 'present' is done.
    How many squares do you still need for your afghan? I love those and hope to make one someday. . .someday :)

    1. Not sure how many squares I need! I just talked to a quilting friend about how to lay out the blocks so will start laying them out and see what I need.

      I do love my new purse:) I will post a picture of the finished present soon!

  2. I know I know!! It's a swing! i cheated because Jaime told me! hahahaha! What did I win?! :) Hope you had a wonderful Birthday Ms Kathy! xoxo!!
    P.S. If you ever have a need to make another Afghan... my birthday is in September! hahahahaha!! :D
