As I sit/sat here playing Turbo 21 on Pogo, and eating grapes, I thought I should write on my blog. Especially since I haven't done so in a few days! So here it goes.................
The jackpot is my new stash of T-shirts! A couple of weeks ago I went to a used clothes closet and picked them up; 25 to be exact! Brought them home and washed them and stacked them neatly in their bin!
And today I went there again and got 5 more! So, with 30 shirts to cut up into strips I figure that will take at least 60 hours of my time. It can take any where from 2 to 3 1/2 hours to cut a shirt, depending on the size. And the BEST part is.............they were FREE! And maybe, just maybe, I will get 2 rugs out of them. Not big ones, but nice little throw rugs.
The closet is run by a church and is open the 1st and 3rd Saturdays of each month. When I told them what I was looking for, they were glad because they had an over-abundance of men's T-shirts! So it worked out for both of us. I also got a pair of summer shoes today. They have about 1 1/2 inch heels and are real comfy!
Oh, almost forgot. ..... This is my current project, a rug for in front of the kitchen sink. It's just about done. Then I suppose I have to start cutting........................................ :(
Well, the fixin's for my potato salad are waiting to be made up, so guess I'd better go start chopping. Have a great weekend. Until next time, take care.
