De-clutting Jazy Style!

I decided today to drop of a LARGE garbage bag full of clothes Miss D had out-grown!
So off to the local Op-shop I went! When I arrived to drop off the bag it was rather busy and as I like to exchange insults with the Lady(we get along very well and just like to tease eachother!) running the shop I waited til she had time to do so, I spend some time nosing around the shop. And then all of a sudden it was like I heard angels sing and a bright light was  coming from a box at the back (ok, so half a plate was sticking out and there wasn't really Angels singing etc!)  as I dived into the box to grab any treasures I saw, I realized everything in the box was a treasure!
I found:
2 mixing bowls (1 small and 1 large)
3 enamel casserole dishes in 3 diff sizes
1 glass lemon squeezer
1 wh/bl meat dish (smallish size) (est age 80+ years)

And the grand total I paid for all of this was $4

I don't know how I will feed the family this week but I think I got a good deal! LOL

Time Flies!

I can not believe it has been so long ago that I've done my blogging!
Can't even use the "I was sooo busy" excuse, I just worked on a little wall quilt (hand quilting it and am 3/4 done with that!)
I did make a lovely Lil Pumpkinhead doll from a pattern by Jackie Schmidt of TFC Folk Art 

Isn't she the cutest?

Also I'm a happy girl as I found a Poffertjes pan (it's a dutch thing! like little miniature pancakes)
So I've seasoned the cast iron pan and been feeding the kids poffertjes on a regular basis. I remember the Saturdays when my Oma (Grandma) made these for me! I had a hard time making up my mind about having them with icing sugar or Maple syrup (don't worry!! I had a plate of both!! hehehe)

Slowly I'm finishing off some UFOs, this one is now almost done:
I'm working on the border at the moment, then binding and I'm done!
