I was RAK'd

For those of you who don't know what a RAK is - it's a Random Act of Kindness.  I was RAK'd by a friend from one of the cross stitch groups that I belong to Krafter's Korners.  Toni-Marie send me this beautiful bookmark and fabric in the mail and I received it today.  I have so many ideas for the different colors of fabric that she has sent to me.  Thank you so much Toni-Marie - it will definitely be put to good use!!!

Here are pictures of my garage sale deals I got today.  It was so cold when we got there and it even started snowing.  I was so glad everything was inside the fair buildings.  All the money that is raised at this garage sale goes to help Angels for Animals which is a non-profit agency that takes in cats and dogs until they can be adopted.  They will also have specials where you can get two animals spayed or neutered for the price of one.  And what amazed me the most about Angels for Animals is how clean of a place it is - no smells at all of animals being there.  The picture on the top left is my bag of kettle corn that I bought.  I just love that stuff and its so addicting.  Not good for a diet but good for the soul - well at least my soul - lol.  The picture on the bottom left is of 5 cross stitch pattern books that I bought.   They are Gone to the Dogs, Afghans and Pillows for Children, Alphabets and Borders, State Flowers, and 30 Fishing Motifs.  I am hoping to use these patterns to make quilt squares for the groups that I belong to that make quilts for sick people and kids.  The picture on the top right is of a wooden/canvas thing (not sure what to call it) that I am going to use to hold my cross stitch projects that I am currently working on instead of them sitting on the love seat or on the end table where I sit.  It even has pockets on the side to hold my scissors and floss.  The picture on the bottom right shows some of my M&M collection.  My collection of M&M's started out in my kitchen only as I have my kitchen done in all M&M's.  Well I ran out of room in the kitchen and it has grown into the living room.  The shiny M&M in the middle of the top shelf was my find at the garage sale today to add to the collection.

Well I hope you all enjoyed my garage sale goodies that I got today.  Until next time have a great evening!!
