Gettin' My Thrifting Shoes On

I’ve wasted my day packing and playing on the internet. I have all the stuff packed that I want to take to keep the kids occupied. So much for clothes. Well, we girls do have underwear. However, there is just one bag for all of us to put our clothes in. This is going to be interesting. Everyone can have just one pair of shoes. But a change of clothes and pajamas do seem important. I have a feeling that I will be rummaging in the closet for another bag. Plus, I want to go thrifting when I am in Seattle. They have better stuff up there than we have here. I plan to bring back as much loot as I can.

Speaking of thrifting, my sister in law, Cherie, has been buying sweaters and felting them to make mittens. Like these:

She really should sell them, but I don’t think she is going to. I asked her if I could buy some of her mittens last week when things were a bit too exciting. Then we never talked about it, and she told my husband she left me some mittens at his mom’s house on the counter. I love them. These obviously weren’t made from an all wool sweater, but most of them are. I’ve looked at similar mittens on Etsy and Ebay. Hers are way nicer looking.
