I've been quiet lately, but not because I've been idle. A lot of work has been done on the Spring Fling kit, but because it's for a contest I can't share my progress with you. I'm very pleased with how the kit is coming along.
I've something else to share today, instead...
Twice a year the charity my daughter volunteers for has a garage sale. Items are donated by the community and the money raised is used by the charity to help the needy. It's a big event attended by hundreds of people...over $25,000 was raised last weekend. My husband and I arrived Saturday morning ten minutes before it opened and waited in the two block long line to get in. Matthew picked up a few odds and ends, while the only thing I got is a fabric remnant I'll use to upholster miniature furniture.
This is Matthew's big score...I wish I'd seen it first! He found a fully functional, in good condition, well used, Mabef artist's sketch box easel. He paid $10 for it...the lucky duck.
