Merry Christmas and a wrap up…

Merry Christmas to all who read my blog. Thank you for sharing your time with me. I hope this new year finds you happy, healthy and full of good cheer.  Blessings to you and your families…..

I just can’t stop with the Rubblework Scarf…  I love the pattern have you noticed??? Can not say enough good things about this. Fun and fast!

Christmas gowns…

burnt the midnight oil on these … 

 Thrifted sheets from the GW… finally got around to using them!  McCalls  pattern 5510.  Love it! Then on to the pajama pants… Butterick 3314

 I made some slight changes~ I added drawstings to the elastic to make it just a little more cute.

 More last minute things to wrap up, Merry Christmas!!!

I heart my GW store!


GW is code for Goodwill.  I love my GW. I am not kidding. Ok, I started out at first being kind of embarrassed about going there. Browsing around, trying on things and always trying to keep a low profile.  I then started to open my eyes to who and  what was around me and  I began to really see the big picture.  Here is the skinny on my GW. 

One, all kinds of people go there. You’ve got the people who really need clothes at a cheaper price, you’ve got the work  crowd looking for their wardrobe fillers, you’ve got smart mother’s looking for hardly worn clothes for their rapidly growing children (this is where I started out), you’ve got the  hip crowd looking for cool vintage,  you get the point. The GW has something for everyone.

Two, it is so good for the environment because you are recycling, you are not wasting precious resources, you are giving care and love to items that someone did not want anymore.

Third, you can yourself recycle what you don’t need or want anymore, keeping things out of landfills, plus you know the drill one man’s treasure…

So, basically it is all good, and you can really get some things for a fraction of the cost. All you have to do is imagine… then it will be! 

Example.. my little girl wants to be a tap dancer… she taps in all her shoes, so, I imagined that she would need a pair of tap shoes…. big sister always needs tee’s. Mama needed new boots and a purse. Fun fabric and pretty brown bears can always be made into various pj’s and whatnot..and the bear, well, let’s think Christmas cheer!

So… here is what I needed and what I received.. all for $23.00

I heart my GW!!!
