Have I mentioned that I have the very best friends? Well, I do. My friend Mary Ann asked me if we needed a crib for when sweet p. comes to visit. I never imagined the fancy crib we would receive from my generous friend. It is beautiful, and fits perfectly in our guest room. All I had to buy was a sheet, since the last one I thrifted in gingham blue, I gave to Kristen for babygrand's crib at home. I'm still on the lookout for more. Babies need lots of sheets.
I found this popcorn stitched crochet afghan at the local thrift. I've actually made this pattern before. I only got to scarf width. I had to rescue this one, and the price, well, I couldn't have bought a skein of "pound of love" yarn with what I paid for this. Who made this? How did it end up in a thrift store? Kinda breaks my heart a little. (It is beautifully made and washed up like new!)
