Plans interrupted!

Ah yes, the best made plans of mice and men……

No, I did not sew yesterday…..and the only gardening that got done was to trim 3 bushes and limb up my young willow tree. Why you ask?

Well, it seems there was an issue with our local taxes (thanks to the tax preparer that took over for the one we have had forever….who retired…how dare she! LOL). So, we had to fly down to civilization today and pick up a new local return form and mail it! What does one do when faced with a change in plans? Why, you go shopping!

After the business was concluded, we went a little further down the road to Joann’s Fabric store, TJMaxx, and Kohl’s! This is what I scooped up…….

Many yards at $1.50/yd of 3 different prints.

A sweet little pillow for the porch……clearance price $4.99!

These adorable storage boxes…..the big one was $8.99. The smaller one $7.99. Yeah! I will use these for storing sewing supplies.

Don’t you just love the details?

So I made the best of my change of plans. Have a Wonderful Wednesday! πŸ™‚ Rosie
