Thursday Thrift Thoughts

I'm so excited because I'm almost done with Heart of America. I finished the letters and now after finishing the vine at the bottom! Done.....well, I actually after ironing have to put the ceramic buttons on it, which are beautiful.

I already have the Crescent Color frame but because this is a larger piece I'm debating my framing technique or taking to a framer.
I need to save so I'm going to attempt framing myself first.

I'm so excited!!!!!
Well, back to work.
Got a flu shot yesterday and I usually don't have a problem with them but this time, spiked a fever last night of 100 and ached all over. Still don't feel so great. So trying to get through the day.


  1. Sorry to hear you aren't feeling well. Hopefully your finish of Heart of America will cheer you up!

    I also want to thank you for being my inspiration to finish my own Heart of America. I would like to mention it on my blog.....with your permission, of course!

  2. Feel better sweetie...if it helps to know DH has had the same reaction to his flu shot (regular), I still need to get mine :)

    "Freedom is looking gorgeous!" I can't wait to see what you decide to do for it's framing :)

    Have a great day....hugs

  3. Hey Jennifer,
    That is perfectly fine to put on your blog. I hope to get finished with it tonight if nothing else comes up and at least get it ironed ready for the buttons.


    thanks, I will say this flu shot was the worse one I've ever had and get them yearly. With caffeine and Tylenol today I'm better.

  4. Sorry to hear that the shot got to you. I had heard that it could happen to some people - like getting a small version of the biggie. Can't wait to see your finished piece. I think you'll be able to frame it. Save the $$, you can buy more stash that way!!

  5. Oh no! A few years ago I got sick from the flu shot but it was a fluke and just one of those things ~ I still get mine every Fall. Hope you feel better!
