Today was our yard sale. We have had one every year for the last 4 years. And each each year we do really well. Usually averaging around $200. I guess our streak had to come to an end. Today was a bust as far as moolah. Only made about 60 bucks and that was in the first 15 minutes. It was a beautiful day but we had very few customers. Our big ticket items, a lazy boy recliner and Ikea corner desk did not sell. Everything else that didn't sell went to Goodwill. The whole reason we even have a yard sale is to get rid of stuff we don't want or need anymore. The money is the icing on the cake. So as far as getting rid of our stuff, we were successful. I'm just happy it's gone!
After I dropped the stuff off at Goodwill I headed to Joann's for some piping to finish a sewing project I've been working on. I'm sure you guys have heard of Susan at Living with Punks. She has awesome projects, one of them being theses Land of Nod inspired floor cushions. The first time I saw them I knew I wanted to make them. That was last year. haha. So today I finally crossed this project off my list.
I chose fabric that would coordinate with our living room since that is where the girls wil be using them. I love this pattern! I have material to make a second one so the girls each have their own. I was going to wait to share when I finished both but I couldn't wait! I still consider myself a beginner sewer. I would probably be much better if I did it more often. But with that said this project was easy!! Don't be intimidated. Susan's tutorial is very easy to follow and I'm sure any questions you have she would be more then happy to answer. She's cool like that.
Hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend! Tomorrow Lily and I are off to Lucketts to see Cassie and Emily and hopefully come home with some goodies. I am so excited!!
