trim to my heart’s desire

my sister amy rang me last week about a huge ‘going-out-of-business-bankruptcy’ sale  at a local fabric & upholstery store. so we met. walking into the store we passed rows of upholstery material – that would have been couches and chair cushions – now, in amy’s eyes, became purses and messenger bags. soon we found ourselves rummaging through scrap material, boxes&boxes of thread, and …. bins of trim! for $1 a spool this eclectic trim could not be passed up. throwing spools into my cart, i quickly reached my one cart limit (unfortunately these were not WALMART sized shopping carts) …  but  swore to amy that we would be back!

now as my trim sits all lined up on my craft shelves … i envision the adorable floor mats that i will crochet. because my big mama rug needs some babies of her own to accompany her on the beautiful wood floor in my new apartment in cincinnati.

    Hm. I have crocheting needles. And yarn. And I need a big circular rug. But I do not know how to crochet. We will have to fix this.
