An almost finished camera case (my mom has requested one for herself as well, so I'll be making a third!) All I have to do is graft this one.
And progress on my thrum mitten! It's actually starting to look like something. I'm a little bit confused with the thumb part, so I'm going to re-read the pattern tomorrow when I've gotten enough rest.
In Ottawa we went for specific things. First we went to Pet Smart, as my mom needed some stuff for her dogs. We don't have a pet smart in Quebec. I blame it on the language problem. Then we ate lunch at Harvey's. Then we went to Michaels. I got some yummy yarn - I'll be posting that tomorrow - I bought enough for a sweater. I also got some other goodies at Michaels. We do not have a Michaels in Quebec. The closest one is at Innes Road in Ottawa, exit 112. It was exactly an hour and a half from my mom's place to get there. It rained all the way there and there was NASTY fog all the way home, so we drove slowly and carefully. What a nasty day out today, but a great shopping day. We went to Walmart out there afterwards, which was next to the Michaels. Walmart there had some great baby stuff, and my best purchase was a tshirt for Sean, (in a larger size) for 0.01¢. Yes, you read that correctly. One Cent. One Penny. The shirt cost me ONE PENNY! It was originally over 10$. I can't recall the exact price. It was on liquidation and on liquidation even more for $2.00. That's what the sales tag said. However, I was playing around with the scanner in the baby department while waiting on my mom who was looking at stuff, and WAS SHOCKED that it said only 0.01¢ when it scanned. I called my mother over. I scanned it again. I called my grandmother over, I scanned it again. Yep - one cent. Get the cash, the cashier rings up everything, indeed it was 0.01¢, and the cashier didn't even seem to notice, so I didn't say anything. One cent. One penny. Never gotten a good deal like that before. And it's a DAMN cute shirt too. I'll photograph it tomorrow.
After Walmart we went to Costco out in Ottawa, and then had a hot dog at Costco and then headed home. I got a few things for Sean at Costco (some really adorable sleepers in 6 month size - since they were on sale). He doesn't fit into the 3 month size from Costco anymore, they're a little too short in length for him.
I'll leave you tonight with some photos of Sean, from today in Ottawa:
And I finally captured a photo of his GORGEOUS long eyelashes, I wonder where he gets those from? (Hint hint... me?!) And his baby blue eyes (which are hard to tell in this photo due to the lighting) I hope those stay!
