Paid a visit to Joann's yesterday afternoon with coupons, of course, and found things I could purchase with them. Lots of the time you cannot as what you are looking for is usually on sale. Found this book "The Flirty '30''s" and it's a cute one - right up my alley. Also bought some tea towels for applique or embroidery and a ball of Sugar and Cream.
A year or two ago, Leslie game me a knitted dish cloth and I really like it. Can't knit, but can crochet and that's what I am doing - isn't that neat yarn? It's a mindless pattern and goes quickly. Love the scrumptious colors.
And a note about my two granddaughters in Africa. My daughter talked to them yesterday and they are having a great time. They went back to Hannah's site a day or so ago, and Molly said everyone was waiting for them. Molly told her mom they all love Hannah and she doesn't have to worry about Hannah - she's "sassy" and knows how to negotiate to get what she wants! What an impact this time in the Peace Corps will have on the rest of her life. It is very, very hot and Molly is not used to that, but is having a wonderful time anyway. Actually, they will be spending Thanksgiving with a big group of PC volunteers and then Molly will be on her way home day after. Hannah will be doing some more traveling and will be basically on her way home for Christmas. School has been out there for a time now. Am so anxious to see her and hear all her stories! We also skyped with Norah in Denver and got to look at Henry. My, he is growing and changing and adorable. And to top it all off, Barclay cooked steaks, Sherry made the great spinach salad and baked potatoes, and pumpkin bread. My private 5-star restaurant!! (Click to enlarge)
