Making progress

I'm happy to report that I've finished up two, well technically three, projects this week. Unfortunately, I have no photos to share with you.

The first project was a baby blanket and tag-a-long for Charlotte, the new bundle of joy born to our very dear friends in the UK. I was so excited to finish these and get them wrapped up and shipped off that I forgot to take photos. I used the same fabric for this blanket set as the set I did for another friend back in November. The photos for that set are here.

The second project was very, very simple. My son is a huge Thomas fan and has his bedroom all decked out in Thomas bedding and other Thomas/train paraphenalia. He has one Thomas pillowcase and one sort of wonky shaped red jersey pillowcase. I thrifted a toddler size Thomas sheet a few weeks ago and made a spiffy new Thomas pillowcase for his second pillow! Not much creativity, but Nathan was excited by it. I probably have enough of the little sheet left to make a valance or possibly cover a small cornice box. We'll have to see how that goes.

I also thrifted this week. Really the only things worth sharing are some soup mugs.

There were 11 Campbell's mugs (1 chipped) and one Tomato Soup mug. I paid $5, which is a little more than I wanted to pay, but I've been looking for some nice soup mugs. Figures, now that it's getting hot here I find soup mugs!

I was curious to see if they might be worth anything on ebay, so I took a look when I got home. A set identical to the set of four mugs recently sold for over $21. Not a huge profit, but hey, I wouldn't turn down $20 for my $2 investment. So, they're listed here on ebay.

Guess that's all for now. Hope you're having a great weekend!

Jack has a Thomas pillowcase that has Thomas on one side and a bedtime clock on the other side. He will NOT go to bed unless his head is on the Thomas side. LOL
