A Fabric and Craft Supply Fair

Today is a rather cloudy, dreary day in Maine. But there is a bright spot. This morning I went to a fabric and craft supply fair in Auburn. I guess this particular church holds this fair every April and I finally found out about it.

The doors opened at 9;00am. I arrived around 8:45 or so and there was a line with about 45 people waiting to get in. I couldn't believe how many people were at the door just waiting to pounce on some terrifice finds.

Once the doors opened to my amazement,, there were tables, and tables covered in fabric, notions, trims, patterns, books and every concievable item for crafting you could think of. There was a table that you could fill a bag of material for 3.00,one for 5.00. I bought some items, trims, material, old bobbins, rick rack and beads and I don't think I spent more than 15.00. It was a lot of fun. The only thing better would have been to have my sister with me to dig through the material. Next year Kath,, plan on it!!

Last Day Of Work!!!

Friday, All DONE!!! .. a quote I read once...A foolish man came across a wise man eating lentils in a kingdom and said , "If you would only be subservient you wouldn't have to eat lentils, the wise man said in return... "If you only at lentils, you wouldn't have to be subservient .... I've chosen to eat lentils!!

I want a Tear Drop Trailer!

I visited Joanne over at "little cottage in the making".. her post is about vintage trailers. I saw that and I want a Tear Drop. If you never saw a Tear Drop Trailer, they are very small, very quaint and tight quaters. But they are soooo cute. Enough room for a bed and the whole kitchen outdoors under the back of the trailer... love it..I want one!!!
