Grannying ,Stitching and Thrifting !

 Good Sunday morning ! I have been making a lot of granny squares ! They are so simple and fast to make .. The colors in this blanket seem so spring -summery !
 I have 4 rows completed and lots more to join with the white ..
 Hopefully I will have enough yarn to finish it :)
 I have also been stitching ( and ripping out some stitching) Love this Lizzie Kate  Dog lessons ! It is very quick to stitch if you don't make mistakes !
 For the Santa Sundays On Instagram ( #santasundayxs) I am working on this Country Cottage Needleworks , Silent Night .. I started it before Christmas but just didn't have any stitching time to finish it!
 Yesterday we went to an Estate sale , It was 75% off , so I got the pedestal, small corning ware dish , and platter all  for $4.50 !
 The platter still has a $28.00 price tag on it like its never been used.
 I stuck the pedestal under these plates on the dining room buffet,
 and for now the platter is under the snowman in the cloche.. love great bargains !

Then... I have been wanting an armoire for my youngest sons room , for more storage for his clothes ..They had $150.00 price tag on this so we got it for $37.50  !Its a Bernhart piece... I haven't decided whether we will paint it or leave it , it does need new knobs ..but where are you going to get a piece of furniture for $37.50 !

Don't forget to stop by and enter to win the Dollar Tree $100.00 gift card !
 I would love for you to follow me on Instagram, Facebook and Pinterest ..all the links are in the sidebar !
 I love your visits and nice comments !

I love those colors. I just hate stitching all the squares together---well that and the thread ends...ugh--but it looks beautiful. Good deals!

Oh my, can't believe you got the cabinet for that! Fabulous deal! That platter matches the jar that I bought at a yard sale last year for $4. I used it on my Winter table. The granny squares and stitching's are coming along nicely. I am working on a clock stitching that I picked up the pattern at a thrift store. Just one question my friend. Do you ever sleep? lol! You get so much done! Thanks for sharing with SYC.
