Mama Needs a New Chair

‘My  Mom is an avid knitter and needs something with more support than a couch to sit on while doing so.
I was out doing my normal weekly rounds and stumbled – yes, literally stumbled, as I stepped on the sidewalk outside the store.  
Have you ever walked into a store or estate sale and something catches your eye so you make a beeline to it without quite paying attention to what’s in your way? Your vision develops crosshairs? 

Well that was me - I tripped on the sidewalk - doh!
I don’t think anyone was watching, but I could have cared less because I saw THIS:
The sign said everything on the sidewalk 50% off [yessssss]
Of course no price tag, so I went in and asked. 

Here’s how the conversation went:

[NICE LADY]  “hmmm - ummmm - welllllll.....How about $10.00?”
[ME WITH POKER FACE] “Is it 50% of that amount?”
[REALLY REALLY REALLY NICE LADY] “Sure.”
[ME DOING THE HAPPY DANCE] “SOLD!”


Of course it needs a new outfit but this thing is SOLID and it SWIVELS.  Perfect for reaching for those skeins of yarn and glancing at the pattern.  


I'm going to work on it today so I can surprise her Saturday and  I will post pics when I’m done!


Oh yeah, I got this beauty for $2.50.  Filled it with Sam's Club flowers and ooollaaaa:

MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL AND TO ALL A GOOD KNIT [heh!]
