Rewards

I did it! I finally got around to getting a mammogram for this year. I just kept putting it off or this reason or that. Mostly because I just don't like getting them or the bit of worry afterwards as I wait for the results.
But, whenever I finally get it done, I reward myself with a bit of yarn.  This year I got this...


Isn't it pretty?  I just couldn't pass it up.  The colors are gorgeous and so fall-like.
Plus, it's cotton!  Cotton just put it over the top and made it totally irresistible.


The yarn shop I visited shares space with a little antique shop.  While I was there, I also found this...  


It's cute and it was on sale.  I ended up paying about $6 for it.  I thought it was one of those mass produced things that you'd normally find at Home Goods or somewhere like that and that it had somehow just made it into the antique shop.  But, I opened the back to remove a piece of lint and clean the glass and it looks like it's hand and home made.  It's a cut piece of felt with hand stitching and it's in a store bought frame with the mat and the picture label still inside.  If it is one-of-a-kind, that makes it an even nicer fine.

Time to get back to work on my dresser to buffet transformation.  The project is underway and looking amazing.  I hope to finish it soon and post pictures.  Have a wonderful day!

Good for you for getting that mammogram! I try to schedule mine around my birthday so I don't forget. Your yarn is gorgeous, and your sheep picture is darling!

I did the mammogram this month. That letter stating "normal" is comforting.

Sweet reward! I do love the colors. What are you going to make with them?

And what a lovely picture. And the fact that someone created it by hand makes it extra special. I am glad it is in hands that can appreciate it.

Hmmm, I'll have to start rewarding myself for health appointments with yarn. Any excuse for knitting fiber in my book. Found you via the Grow your own blog promo. Hope to see more of your yarn creations.
