Mr. Dotty and I haven’t purchased gifts for each other for years. We’re entirely happy to buy what we want, when we want or when we can afford it. For my birthday (Oct. 15) I did a little shopping!
Youngest daughter Ashley sent a Joann’s gift card! They had 40% off all rotary cutting tools, so I picked up this rotating cutting mat. I think it will be very handy.
This has nothing to do with birthdays, but I’ll throw it on the heap. I joined a Brown Bag challenge, or Ugly Fabric Challenge as some are called. This is what I received and I don’t think it qualifies as ugly. But, I do understand how a girl gets tired of looking at the same fabric in her stash all the time and wants it out of there. Now to figure out what it will become!
It’s odd that I’d been looking at purple fabrics recently. Maybe it was a premonition.
I get so tired of having bobbins everywhere that I can’t identify. I always have 3 or 4 spools that are close in color, but slightly different. With the Coats and Clark, I can put 2 bobbins under the spool on this rack, but the Gutterman’s is bigger. Q-tip to the rescue!
Back to the birthday topic. My baby is 25 today! Happy birthday Ashley:)
