I have been wanting a dough bowl, preferably an antique one, for many years and most especially since I’ve been cross stitching. Every time we find one that’s reasonable at a flea market, Vince says “I can make that!” Yes, he can. Just like I can make tops for myself but for four years, I’ve been wearing the same few tops because I never make them. I can’t fault Vince since I do the same thing but . .
I don’t even know how I saw it but Hobby Lobby had this dough bowl (definitely not an antique) on sale for $21, with free shipping if you spend $50. Who wouldn’t spend $29 more in order to save $7 shipping? 🙂
To get to $50, I ordered some fall decorations – little metal pumpkins and pinecones, fall ribbon, fall stickers for Addie. She used to love stickers but I’m betting she doesn’t so much anymore.
I also ordered this 8-1/2″ square board. I can paint it, distress it . . do something and put a cross stitched piece on it. I don’t know where I will hang it but I’ll find a place once I find something to stitch on it. I know, and you know exactly what Vince will say to this too. “I could have made that!” It was $3.99. He’ll have better things to make.
Anyway, I need to get to stitching on smalls to put in my dough bowl!
Here’s something funny. I saw a Stitching With The Housewives Halloween project . . I think I bought the chart, but they had it finished in a hanging basket that was kinda flat and it had witch legs on picks sticking out of the basket. Of course I ordered witch legs and the box from Michael’s has been sitting in the hallway for weeks. I crack up every time I think about what Vince will say if he happens to be the one to open that box and find two witch legs. I best get that box unpacked and the contents stuffed into Addie’s bedroom closet before he does find them.
