Whatcha Working on Wednesday! and other goodies

Hi prim girls, 

 I was moved to VA last year and in October I was in a huge Craft Fair here in Fredericksburg. This Sunday was another edition of it, but this year the prim crafters are missing ,only 3 booths.... you can believe that!. This year prices are high ( almost a double) and they had less merchandise from the previous one. I was very dissapointed of what I found this year.  But in the route of my house, I saw a road sign that shows "Cottage Craft Fair and Yard Sale"and  look what I found there....
 Skate lamp for $5.00 ( I bought two) . Ready for Christmas....

 This beautiful mustard lamp ($5.00)

And two candle holders from Irvin's Tinware ( 50 cents ea)

The girl that had this YS was selling her store inventory. All items are new and not used, the ski lamps were previously marked $28.00/ea and the tin candle holders are $8.25/ea. Not too bad, that sign saves my Sunday.... LOL

On Monday,   I was working on two stitchings. One is a simple pineapple (I design it) and the other was a beautiful stitching from Glory River Primitives, it appears in the Fall Issue of  Mercantile Gathering Magazine.  Thank you Glory for this beautiful design. Love it!!!

 Both are pending for sanding and staining processes but I want to share them with you.  


Today is Whatcha Working on Wednesday! at Leslie's blog, My Country HomeCome later to see what I working on....

Sorry for my delay, but I am thinking that my camera is over, it will be die in every moment.  It is  a Sony Cyber-shot  model that I had for several years but I loved this camera and is easy to handle.  Sometimes when I need a picture urgently, "she" decide that is not time to work and did not opened the lens.   I need a new one  very, very soon. Well, here is the picture  that I missed since Wednesday....

This is my first Cross Stitching project. This is a Primitive Bettys Pattern, I hope I finish it for this Friday.
