Hello Chickadee's.  I got a little thrifting in this weekend.  We started at an estate sale which was really more like a furniture sale and nothing to write home about.   Met my friend Sharon and we found a couple of garage sales but did not find anything.  So my husband took me a few towns over and I found this super sweet wall pocket.  She was in the window and I just could not leave her behind.  I do not know much about her other than she is from Japan.

I also found this plastic Santa.  He was a really good bargain at $1.  

I finished quilting the cowgirl quilt and got the binding sewn on it all I have to do is the hand sewing.  I will show you more when I am all finished.  Got my once a season swap done and mailed out today.  While I was waiting in line at the post office I realized I did not take pictures of all the goodies I made.  Darn it.  

Oh boy I have to tell you about the cutest image ever and it is over at Keren's at  You must pay here a visit.  She is so talented and has the cutest images ever.

Hope y'all are staying cool.
