I stopped in one thrift store Wednesday and found this gorgeous Patons Baby Cotton DK (Double Knitting). It is in original wrappers and clean. I bought all seven. This is the softest baby yarn I`ve felt. In the plastic bag is several yards of clean, unused bobbin lace, lengths of vintage eyelet trims and pastel blue satin ribbon with machine lace trim. We were in a hurry so that was my only "thrifty" stop.
Cat owners will understand the final picture. Bring a new chair into the house and kitty breaks it in. A neighbor once told me she loved walking by our home because there was always a cat in the sunny windows.
